Brandon Jacobs ‘would love’ to join Jets
Brandon Jacobs became a free agent after the Giants cut him last week, and he says he “would love” to sign with the Jets.
“I would love to do that,” Jacobs told the New York Post. “It would be an opportunity for me to not have to relocate. I got to do what’s best for my family. Whichever team it is, I think is going to be a lucky team. I got a lot left in me, got a lot to offer.”
Jacobs, who is 29, believes he has three good years left in him. He also says his December spat with Rex Ryan is not an issue.
“That whole thing with Rex Ryan — me and Rex are alike, that’s what it is,” Jacobs said. “We definitely could get along, no question about it. There were a lot of things said in the heat of the battle. It’s football. I talk with players on the other teams every week and shake their hand afterwards. I like Rex as a coach, I would definitely play for him. I would not say I wouldn’t go there. It would be an opportunity to see how things are on the other side.”
This isn’t the first time this offseason that Jacobs expressed interest in playing for the Jets, but you have to wonder why they would be interested in him. Jacobs has a big mouth and the Jets already have enough team character issues.
