The upside for any team that signs Jacobs is his passion and potential to scare the bejeezus out of defense with his size (6'4", 265lbs). The downside is, as we all know, is his inconsistent effort to utilize that size in short yardage situations.
Nevertheless, there will be many suitors vying for Jacobs' services. The Jets will certainly be one of them. They seem to have a few other issues to address this offseason, but the Jets will surely take a look and Jacobs will consider - and even take - their offer to keep his family in the area.
The other three NFC East teams will all take a look, too. Dallas, Philadelphia and Washington would all love to turn Jacobs around and point him at the Giants after years of having to deal with him from the other side of the line of scrimmage.
Other spots could be Miami (who are the favorite to sign Peyton Manning), Tampa Bay (who's offense is being run by Giants' QB coach Mike Sullivan) and New England, because Bill Belichick leaves no stone unturned when it comes to useful veterans that hit the open market.
