    Not really anything related to the Pats just figured I would throw it out there in case anyone else missed it.

    I know Jacobs is a beast, but that seems like a lot. His running style and size seems like he's going to get hit and injured - sooner, not later. But hey, good for him; $13 million guaranteed sure is nice.

    Seems like alot at first but when guys like AP, Chris Johnson, D'angelo Williams, Matt Forte, Marion Barber, etc get off their rookie contracts in the new market this will look like a bargain IMO.

    I disagree, I don't think it's a lot at all. In fact, I think the Giants made out big time here. He's still young, and even if he plays a very physical style, it's a lot less than he could have made in the open market. Plus, if the cap doesn't get renewed, it makes the deal look even better.

    Also think if they franchise him every year right now when they did it was for 6.6M? and every year that will increase I think its a pretty fair price for a guy with this talent but I won't be surprised if he gets hurt on one of the last two years of this contract.
