New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs was interviewed by Bruce Beck of NBC 4 New York and was asked about his future with the Giants. Jacobs indicated that he’s willing to try to make things work, but there’s only so far he can go. “I want to stay in New York a whole lot, man, because this is where I started,” Jacobs said. “It’s a great organization. I got wonderful, great teammates. I won a second Super Bowl here with this organization. But I’m not willing to sell my soul, you know? It’s a great organization and I want to be a part of it, but if not, if they’re not feeling the same way, then so be it.” Jacobs was asked if both sides will be able to work something out. “I have no idea,” Jacobs said. “I don’t know what they’re thinking. I want to be here. If not, there’s 31 other teams out there. “It is what it is,” Jacobs added. “As far as I’m concerned I got another year left on my contract. I don’t know why I’m sitting here saying all this stuff. If they want it to work out it’s going to work out. If they don’t want it to work out, it’s not going to work out. That’s all I can say.” Thanks to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News for the quotes.
