I haven’t been able to confirm that report yet, though one source in Jacobs’ camp said he "wouldn’t be surprised" if the running back did just that. Of course, the source warned, he’s also threatened to do it before. Only Jacobs knows if he’s serious this time around.
If he is, it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise. Jacobs’ blood has been boiling since last season when people started questioning his abilities during a year in which he rushed for only 835 yards. Jacobs later claimed he had suffered a knee injury in Week 1 and kept playing through it, which he later felt was a mistake.
This year, he’s been brooding since training camp when it was apparent that he had been demoted to No. 2 on the depth chart behind Ahmad Bradshaw. After the preseason finale, he told a reporter that it’s "hard to stay positive" in the backup role. Then he later snapped at a reporter when asked if he and Bradshaw needed to put their egos aside to co-exist.
Jacobs also said this after the helmet toss and before hurling more expletives at the media: "I have a lot on me right now, you know what I mean? It’s not good. I just want to forget about all of this."
The Giants certainly need to do something. Jacobs is unhappy, and really not that productive any longer. Vote in the poll at Big Blue View to let us know what you think the Giants should do with him
