Brandon Jacobs is tiring. He is no longer pumping his chest after the Giants' huge Super Bowl win. He'll have to continue these humble ways if he wants to remain a Giant. It is almost a slam dunk that the team will either reduce his salary or release him this spring.

From our partners at NBC Sports:

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs arrived at the NBC SportsTalk studio to talk about a variety of topics with host Russ Thaler, including Jacobs? failed attempt to play other positions before transferring from Auburn to Southern Illinois, the reaction that some defensive backs have when Jacobs is bearing down on them, and whether he would have done a better job than Ahmad Bradshaw of stopping at the one yard line late in Super Bowl XLVI.
