Vinny DiTrani of the Bergen Record says a source is telling him that Brandon Jacobs will meet with Giants management Monday and request a trade.
The bulldozing 265-pound running back lost his starting job to Ahmad Bradshaw during training camp. The temperamental Jacobs has frequently butted heads with members of the New York media, and, reading between the lines, he seems to have an iffy relationship with the coaching staff.
Jacobs has not been an effective runner this season or all of last season. The Giants gave Jacobs a new contract worth $13 million in guarantees prior to last season.
If Jacobs does get dealt – and, given New York’s lack of running back depth, it’s highly unlikely he will – his last hurrah in Big Blue will have been the bizarre helmet in the stands incident (which, by the way, is a story likely to stick around this week).
