Brandon Jacobs Meets With Giants Management; Fined $10,000 For Helmet Toss

It was reported following Sunday's loss to the Colts that Giants RB Brandon Jacobs planned to demand a trade at a Tuesday meeting with Giants management. The Giants were coming off of a big loss and Jacobs was getting a lot of attention because he somehow threw his helmet into the stands.

To this point Jacobs hasn't requested a trade, but he has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for throwing his helmet into the stands.

"I want to apologize one more time for accidentally tossing my helmet in the stands. It was something that happened because I was frustrated with the game, and I had no business tossing my helmet in the first place, and I am thankful that nobody was hurt. I talked to Jerry and coach Coughlin yesterday. Both of them asked to speak with me, I didn't request a meeting with them. I have not demanded a trade and have no plans to demand a trade. The only demand I am making right now is of myself, to be the best player I can be and to help this team win."

So it looks like Jacobs won't be demanding a trade anytime soon. That's probably a good thing because he's unlikely to get anymore money than what he's getting in New York and the trade value on a running back like him is very low.

Brandon Jacobs Reportedly Meeting With Giants Management On Tuesday

On Monday morning, Vinny DiTrani of the Bergen Record reported that RB Brandon Jacobs was going to ask for a trade from the Giants.

Multiple outlets then responded with reports that Jacobs has not asked for a trade....yet.

DiTrani reports that Jacobs will now meet with Giants management on Tuesday where he will, according to the report, ask for a trade.

Most don't think that there's much of a trade value for Jacobs and the Giants aren't interested in trading him. We should find out more if Jacobs formally requests a trade.

Keep up on the Jacobs story at Big Blue View and SB Nation New York.


Giants RB Brandon Jacobs Will Reportedly Ask For A Trade

Things aren't going so well for Giants RB Brandon Jacobs. He lashed out at a reporter last week asking, "You think I'm stupid?" This week, he "accidentally" tossed his helmet into the stands.

Now his week will probably get worse. According to Vinny DiTrani of the Bergen Record, Jacobs "will meet with Giants management today and ask to be traded."

It seems like a good idea until you realize Jacobs has little, if any, trade value. Running backs in general aren't very valuable because of their short shelf-life and that's particularly true with a hard runner like Jacobs. It also doesn't help that he's reportedly lashed out at reporters two weeks in a row.

We're not sure where this Jacobs situation will end up but SB Nation's Big Blue View has it right: "Boy, this got ugly in a hurry."

Check out what Giants fans are saying about Jacobs after this latest report over at Big Blue View.
