Could a return to the New York Giants by running back Brandon Jacobs be in the works? The Giants recently released the veteran running back, who was due to make $4.9 million this season, is a salary cap move. Wall Street Journal Giants' beat report Aditi Kinkhabwala reported, however, that Jacobs was at the Timex Performance Center Tuesday to meet with Giants coach Tom Coughlin.
Source tells me Brandon Jacobs went to NYG HQ tooday to see Coughlin. Said not going to rush decision and was mellow. Reunion possible?— Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) March 13, 2012
Kinkhabwala also reported that the contract signed by Terrell Thomas could net him as much as $5 million in 2012, and would guarantee him $13 million in 2013 if the Giants pick up the option.
That seems like a lot of money for a guy who has had two ACL surgeries on his right knee.
