Brandon Jacobs Expects to Return to the Giants: HB Brandon Jacobs, who has one year left on his current contract, said yesterday he expects to return to the Giants. Jacobs is currently scheduled to earn $4.4 million in salary and $500,000 in a roster bonus for 2012.
“Well, I have spoken to my agent and I do expect to be fully back with the New York Giants next season,” said Jacobs on Sirius Radio. “These guys in the front office, they’ve been doing this for years. 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.”
“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.”
