He’s loud; he’s proud; and he hasn’t been very effective recently.
No, we aren’t talking about New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan. We are referring to Giants running back Brandon Jacobs, who has hinted that he would be open to playing for the Jets in 2012.
The 30 year old, coming off a disappointing 571 yard season, is in the final year of a contract that will pay him $4.9 million this season including a $500,000 bonus on March 17.
Just two months after telling Ryan, “it’s time to shut up, fat boy”, and saying “Rex Ryan is a disrespectful bastard,” and that the “Jets have a big mouth, big belly coach that talks too much,” Jacobs now realizes the Giants don’t want to pay almost $5 million to running back that can’t run.
“I like the way Rex handles his business,” Jacobs said. “The guys on that team I know, know how I feel.”
Let’s hope Jets management thinks otherwise.
