  • Brandon Jacobs Franchised

    Just saw it on ESPN. This is definitely big news and takes one of the premier FA Running Backs out of contention.

    How much again is the cost on franchising him?

      $6.6 million. Quite a bit.

          I just posted this in the Giants forum but I like this move a lot. Jacobs probably only has maybe 3 years in him so I'd use the tag twice and then let him walk. This is probably the precursor for an extension but either way it works out well.

            I would NEVER sign ANY RB to a FA deal. Signing a FA RB to a big deal has for the most part never worked out.

              I totally agree with that. His running style will wear him down and I think he will have a much shorter career than other RB's right now. Thats the approach I'd take if I were the Giants.

                  Not nearly as much as I thought. Compared to other skill positions, I feel that this was a FANTASTIC move. I personally thought that the tag was closer to 9 or 10 million.

                    Really? It didn't seem to work out too badly for Atlanta last season.

                      What affect does franchising a player have on compensatory picks?

                        We would get 2 1st rounders if another team signed him.

                            None, re-signing your own players - which the franchise tag is one method of doing - doesn't effect compensatory picks.

                            If Jacobs plays out his tender in 2009 and then goes on to sign a big deal with another team next offseason, the Giants would be in line to receiver a comp pick in 2011 assuming they don't sign someone next offseason to offset that loss.

                              Good move seeing as he's injured so often, but has such a big impact when healthy.
