New York Giants sign Brandon Jacobs


There’s quite reunion going on in New York, as the giants are bringing back one of their more controversial players of the Tom Coughlin-era:


Jacobs spent his first seven seasons with the Giants before struggling through an injury-plagued season with the San Francisco 49ers in 2012. The 49ers ultimately waived Jacobs in December after he was suspended for the final three regular-season games because he used social media to complain about a lack of playing time.

Giants safety Antrel Rolle said he thinks Jacobs, a former teammate of his, could help Big Blue:

“Brandon was a great Giant,” Rolle said. “I’d like to have him back but it’s not my call. I think he would bring balance to the run and the pass.”

This all comes in light of Giants running back David Wilson fumbling twice and having one returned for a touchdown in the Giants’ six-turnover, 36-31 season-opening loss to the Cowboys on Sunday night, and is certainly in head coach Tom Coughlin’s doghouse once again after being benched most of his rookie season for an early-season fumble.
