Considering the circumstances, Thursday ended up being not too bad of a football day.
NFL owners and the players' union agreed to a 24-hour stay of execution for the current collective bargaining agreement, allowing the two sides one more day to attempt to figure this mess out. And for Giants fans, there appears to be even more good news — depending on your opinion of running back Brandon Jacobs.
Jacobs told ESPNNewYork.com that he knows it will be tough for the Giants to keep both him and Ahmad Bradshaw. Nevertheless, that didn't stop Jacobs from affirming his interest in staying in New York.
"The whole thing with Ahmad and me, I want to be a Giant, no question about it," Jacobs said in an interview with ESPNNewYork.com while at ESPN The Weekend in Orlando. "But it is a business and I want to be able to play with Ahmad and play with the Giants but I don't know what is in store, I don't know what is going to happen. So I keep my fingers crossed and workout as hard as I can and hope I am a Giant next year."
Jacobs' contract has two years remaining, and he said he would take a "fair" pay cut. It seems like the Giants want him back as well, so this figures to be one of the main Giants headlines while these CBA issues drag on.
