Giants busy working to keep Ahmad Bradshaw
The New York Giants have had a busy morning, adding interior offensive lineman David Baas, and trying to carve out some room to bring running back Ahmad Bradshaw back into the fold.
In order to create the kind of room needed, the team is attempting to restructure the contract of running back Brandon Jacobs, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Of course, that’s code for they are trying to give him a pay cut.
Jacobs has $9.5 million and two years remaining on his current deal, and coach Tom Coughlin has been adamant that he wants the big back to play a bigger role in the offense this season. Per the report, Jacobs is willing to cooperate if he’s not taking too big of a hair cut.
Baas, meanwhile, will be a replacement for Shaun O’Hara, who was informed he will be let go. The guess is that he will play center for the Giants. He played that position last season for the San Francisco 49ers, who are in the market for a center.
