From Brandon Jacobs Reportedly Will Ask Giants for Trade -- NFL FanHouse "Brandon Jacobs, the disgruntled New York Giants running back will reportedly meet with Giants' management on Monday and ask to be traded, according to the Bergen Record's Vinny DiTrani. The trade request does not come as a surprise, considering Ahmad Bradshaw has supplanted Jacobs as the Giants' feature runner....Even though Jacobs has the potential to still be a helpful running back to many teams, his salary and temper remain big problems. The Giants gave Jacobs $13 million in guaranteed money in a four-year, $25 million extension before the 2009 season. Jacobs, 28, had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2007 and 2008, but has been injured and far less productive since 2009." In this uncapped year, his salary for this year doesn't put the Pats into a hole, and in 2011 and 2012 he's scheduled to make more reasonable amounts of $4.65 and $4.9 million, respectively. I think, given the Pats' struggles at RB, that this guy could be a big help. He doesn't have a ton of miles on the tread, because the Giants have employed several running backs over the years. His last three seasons he's had 202, 219, and 224 carries. That's not a ton. I think he could be a very nice fit for this team for the next three seasons, and I think the salary is reasonable for 2011 and 2012. I don't know what the Giants would be looking for, but I wonder if the Pats could maybe deal, say, a 4th round pick for him.
