Brandon Jacobs is going to be wearing a New York Giants uniform again.

Jacobs and the Giants have agreed to terms on a one-year deal that will bring Jacobs back to New York, according Jacobs played with the Giants from 2005-11 and holds the team's franchise-record for rushing touchdowns with 56.

The Giants brought Jacobs in for a workout on Tuesday after running back David Wilson struggled in New York's season opener, fumbling the ball twice in the Giants 36-31 loss to Dallas.

Wilson's backup Andre Brown fractured his leg in the preseason, leaving the Giants thin at running back. Brown was placed on short term injured reserve and is expected to return after Week 8.

The eighth-year veteran spent part of the 2012 season with San Francisco, but never quite fit it. Jacobs was suspended for the final three games of the 2012 season after complaining about the team on social media. The 49ers finally waived Jacobs on Jan. 1. The 31-year-old running back totaled seven yards in two games with San Francisco.

Jacobs last big game with the Giants came in December 2011 when he ran for 101 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-34 win over the Cowboys. The Giants won't be expecting that type of production from Jacobs, but they will most likely expect him to help with Wilson in any way, shape or form.
