New York Giants sign Brandon Jacobs
Welcome back from the dead Brandon Jacobs. Jacobs is washed up. He’s 31 years old. He was suspended for the last three games of 2012. He was bad when he played and he rarely played. However, this signing likely says something about the Giants confidence in David Wilson. Wilson started 2013 in a similar fashion to 2012. Wilson’s ball security issues will keep him outside of Tom Coughlin’s circle of trust. Backup Da’Rel Scott has similar issues and isn’t likely a long term threat though he could get some additional action over the next couple of weeks. The RB situation in New York has gone from one of promise and upside to confusion and near uselessness. Wilson is the best talent by far, but he’ll need to hold onto the ball to get back to his RB1 promise.
