At first, Brandon Jacobs was reluctant to talk Monday about anything related to his comments from last week when he seemingly indicated he was upset with his role in the Giants’ backfield.
His approach was clearly to leave the subject alone, lest he say something he didn’t want to say — or something that could be misconstrued.
But when asked about being portrayed as disgruntled over entering the season as the apparent
No. 2 running back behind Ahmad Bradshaw, Jacobs cracked and began talking in an attempt to clarify his remarks after Thursday’s preseason finale.
“I’m happy,” the Giants’ leading rusher over the past three seasons said. “People get different things confused through words. That’s not the case. The case is I’m here to win football games and ride it on out with my teammates.
Brandon Jacobs' ADP has seen a decrease but he remains the Giants short-yardage back. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if Jacobs retains the #1 RB position. This situation resembles the Arizona Cardinals with Hightower and Wells.
