Brandon Jacobs Helmet Toss Costs Him $10,000

New, comments

New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for throwing his helmet into the stands Sunday night in Indianapolis.

"I want to apologize one more time for accidentally tossing my helmet in the stands," Jacobs said. "It was something that happened because I was frustrated with the game, and I had no business tossing my helmet in the first place, and I am thankful that nobody was hurt.

"I talked to (general manager) Jerry (Reese) and coach (Tom) Coughlin yesterday. Both of them asked to speak with me, I didn't request a meeting with them. I have not demanded a trade and have no plans to demand a trade. The only demand I am making right now is of myself, to be the best player I can be and to help this team win."

Maybe Jacobs will try concentrating on running the football north and south from now on, rather than running his mouth and working on his throwing arm.
