Brandon Jacobs doesn't believe he'll be in New York in '12
Brandon Jacobs is looking forward to his chance to escape New York.
And he is pretty certain his opportunity will come after this season.
The Giants running back stirred the pot plenty in an interview with Men’s Fitness magazine. He says he doesn’t expect to be back with the franchise in 2012. Jacobs re-did his contract before this season and has a $500,000 roster bonus that is due in March.
“Well, (Ahmad Bradshaw) is not being used as much as he can be, either,” Jacobs said. “It’s a very confusing thing. I’m just here, doing the best that I can do to help my team. I come out to win; it’s up to them whether or not they want to use me. I just can’t wait to get a true opportunity to get out there and show myself again, you know? Next year, hopefully.
“This is a business and you have to look at it that way. I just want to get out there and show myself. It’s going to have to be for another team, but it is what it is. It comes with the territory.”
Asked if he expects to be back with the Giants in 2012, Jacobs was to the point.
“No,” he replied. “I don’t.”
Surely, the club hears him. Loud and clear.
