New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs told the New York Daily News that he’s willing to take another pay-cut to stay with the team despite having his salary reduced last year.
Jacobs, 29, would make around $5 million including his roster bonus so there has been some speculation that the team could release him and choose to go in a different direction.
“Like I said the last time: As long as it’s fair,” said Jacobs before his appearance on Spike TV’s “TNA Impact Wrestling.” “There’s something that can be done. I do put a lot of hard work and dedication into what I do as well. But as long as it’s fair, things can happen.”
The fact that he has bonus due in matter of weeks should accelerate the team’s decision regarding his future in New York. Even with Jacobs willingness to renegotiate his current deal, there’s no guarantee that the Giants will want to keep a running back that averages less than 4 yards per carry.
