Brandon Jacobs Playing For Rex Ryan? Nah!

Are you buying what Brandon Jacobs is selling? That he likes "the way Rex [Ryan] handles his business' and that he would apparently be willing to play for the New York Jets if his Giants career is over?

Maybe Jacobs is sincere, but I doubt it. Maybe he just got carried away with it being Valentine's Day and all. In reality, I think this is just Jacobs making nice in the event the Giants send him to the NFL unemployment line next month.

Jacobs is due a $500,000 roster bonus next month. If the Giants pay it they will be on the hook for Jacobs $4.4 million 2012 salary. Sorry, but the Giants aren't paying $4.9 million for a backup running back with questionable knees and, at times, a questionable attitude.

I can't see Jacobs, who had an on-field confrontation with Ryan after the Giants Christmas Eve victory, playing for Ryan. Bigger question, though, is whether the Giants want him back. If so, at what cost?

What would you do if you were the GM, Giants fans? Move on without him? Try to get him to take another pay cut?
