Giants’ Brandon Jacobs: I ‘Plan On Being Big Blue’ In 2012
NEW YORK (WFAN) — Running back Brandon Jacobs has two Super Bowl rings with the Giants.
He wants a chance to make it three.
“I have spoken to my agent and I do expect to be fully back with the New York Giants next season,” Jacobs said Tuesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio.
Jacobs restructured his deal last offseason, allowing the Giants enough flexibility to re-sign Ahmad Bradshaw. It sounds like he’d willing to do so again with $4.4 million remaining on the last year of his contract.
“These guys in the front office, they’ve been doing this for years,” he said. “They know what they gotta do. I want to be back. But they actually know what has to be done if they want me back.”
The backup running back would likely know his fate before a $500,000 roster bonus, reportedly due on March 17, kicks in.
“If they don’t want me back then that’s another story in itself, then nothing has to be done,” said Jacobs. “But I got a feeling that they do. So, you know, things get worked out. I definitely plan on being Big Blue for the 2012 season.”
Jacobs told the New York Times last week that if he doesn’t return to the Giants, he’d be open to staying in town with Rex Ryan’s Jets.
The 29-year-old rushed for 571 yards and seven touchdowns in 2011.
