The Giants released Jacobs earlier this month after the two sides could not come to an agreement on the reduction of his salary. Jacobs, 29, was due to early $4.9 million in base salary next season. Jacobs is the fourth-leading rusher in team history with 4,848 yards and his 56 rushing touchdowns are the most for any Giant. He has lost carries in recent years to Ahmad Bradshaw’s emergence, but was still productive in 14 games last season, rushing for 571 yards and seven touchdowns.
