Giants | Hoping to get long-term deal done with Jacobs

J.P. Pelzman, of the Bergen Record, reports the New York Giants are hoping to get a long-term deal done with RB Brandon Jacobs, who was recently given the franchise tag. General manager Jerry Reese said, "With the deadline approaching it was the right business thing to do at this point, although we are hopeful to get a longer-term deal hammered out in the near future. I did speak to Brandon and we had a very good conversation." Jacobs added, "I spoke to Jerry and that is the reason I am being franchised buying more time to get a deal done. ... I am confident that something is going to get done."
