Jacobs could hand off to Bradshaw

Maybe this will help the Giants up their offer to Ahmad Bradshaw.

According to multiple sources, the Giants are working with running back Brandon Jacobs to restructure the remaining two years of his contract and thereby save the team some money ... that could be spent on close friend and backfield mate Bradshaw.

Just a little while ago Newsday reported that the Giants have made an initial offer to free agent Bradshaw, but there is no imminent agreement between the two sides.

Jacobs has said publicly that he'd be willing to tweak his contract, but said that his good will does have limits.

“If they happen to ask to take the pay cut and it is an unnecessary amount, then absolutely not," Jacobs told ESPN New York back in March. "But other than that, if it is something that can be done, then yes, then whatever is going to get the team going and winning."

While Jacobs and the Giants apparently had discussions yesterday about the restructuring (which is really just a nice term for "pay cut"), they did not reach any agreement. However, the fact that Jacobs is back at the facility today is probably a good sign. Whether or not he is having further discussions with the team today is unclear just yet, but a source tells me that no agreement has been reached with Jacobs.
