The sometimes malcontent back-up running back for the Giants already said he doesn’t seem himself being a Giant past his current contract and even though the Giants beat the Dolphins yesterday Jacobs wasn’t much of a factor in the game.But he … [visit site to read more]Brandon Jacobs Has New York Giants In His Rearview Mirror - GMEN HQ - GMEN HQ - A NY Giants Fan Site - News...
