The New York Post posted a screen grab from Jacobs’ Instagram in which he’s running over a Patriots defender in a Giants uniform. Under the picture, Jacobs writes, “Trying to get back in this uniform.”
If healthy, the Giants could bring him in to compete with Da’Rel Scott and Ryan Torain for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart, the Daily News reported.
“That’s ridiculous,” he said. “…Running backs, the first thing that gets there is our head. That’s kind of weird. I guess they expect us to lead with our chests now rather than our head.”
“If the Giants want to work something out, I am always up for listening, figuring out what I can do to help the cause,” Manning said.
With Osi Umenyiora due to hit the free-agent market on March 12, should he make any attempt to re-sign him? How much should he pay Victor Cruz? Does he keep or release David Diehl? How about Corey Webster?
After his release from the Giants last week, running back Ahmad Bradshaw left a “door open” for a possible return to Big Blue. It seems he also has an eye on the Giants’ co-tenants at MetLife Stadium.
The Giants are clearly turning pages these days, remaking their roster to get young, faster, healthier and, yes, more salary-cap friendly.
Rogers missed last season after developing a blood clot in his leg following a preseason game against Jacksonville. He had been signed as a free agent in April.
The Giants made a perilous decision. They’re banking on David Wilson and Andre Brown — two younger, unproven backs — to develop into Brandon Jacobs and Bradshaw at half the price.
The Giants are retooling their roster, and they will address these losses in the offseason. In cutting Bradshaw, Canty and Boley, general manager Jerry Reese has gotten rid of nearly $14 million in salary.
“Like I said, it was mentioned,” Bradshaw told WFAN of a possible return to Big Blue. “(There’s) always a door open on my side.”
The New York Giants continued their roster purge after missing the playoffs, cutting leading rusher Ahmad Bradshaw and defensive tackle Chris Canty.
There is an obvious reason why the Giants went from a Super Bowl champion to a frustrated team that missed the playoffs. It’s consistency.
The only real answer to the current question is simple. Sometimes, things just don’t fall right, even for a defending Super Bowl champion.
When a pro athlete fails to realize his potential there’s usually something more tangible and turbulent behind it.
