Brandon Jacobs takes a small pay cut

Brandon Jacobs has done his part.

Now, it’s up to the New York Giants to take care of their end of the bargain and get Ahmad Bradshaw signed.

Jacobs agreed to what Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily news described as a “small restructure” of his contract, giving the club some flexibility when it comes to the salary cap.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin and general manager Jerry Reese have been consistent this offseason in saying they expect a bigger role for the big back this season. But they got a little savings from Jacobs and perhaps not it will facilitate the return of Bradshaw. Jacobs’ base salary for this season was $4.65 million.
