Massive running back Brandon Jacobs has been designated by the New York Giants as their franchise player.
The 264-pound Jacobs led the team in rushing last season with
1,089 yards on 219 carries for a 5.0 average. He also led the team
with 15 touchdowns rushing.
As a franchise player, he is guaranteed $6.6 million. If another
team signs him, the Giants can match or will get two first-round
draft picks in return.
The Giants' other 1,000-yard back, Derrick Ward, also is an
unrestricted free agent.
