The deal includes $13 million in guaranteed money, with Jacobs earning $15 million in the first two years of the contract.
Jacobs was the heart and soul of the Giants ground attack in 2008; he rushed for 1089 yards with 15 touchdowns. When Jacobs had to miss some time due to injury, the Giants offense suffered a bit. With him, the Giants are nearly unstoppable.
The deal was a no-brainer for Big Blue.
