Brandon Jacobs appears headed to the Jets or some other team after being released by the Giants last Friday. The team currently has Ahmad Bradshaw as their top ballcarrier, with little used DJ Ware and Da'Rel Scott as the primary backups.
It makes sense for the Giants to bring in a low-cost solution to replace him. There are several veterans that would fit the bill, but would they actually sign for less than the Giants had offered Jacobs (approx. less than $2 million)?
The name people have been bandying about is San Diego's Mike Tolbert. Others to consider include: the Patriots' BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Peyton Hillis of Cleveland and former Giant Ryan Grant, who was traded away to Green Bay in 2007.
