Giants Use Franchise Tag on Jacobs

Rather than letting him test the free agent waters, the Giants brass placed the franchise tag on running back Brandon Jacobs on Friday. Ultimately, the move gives them more time to carve out a long term deal with Jacobs.

Under the franchise tag concept, Jacobs can still pursue offers from other teams but if he signs and the Giants don’t match, his new team would have to surrender two first round draft picks to Big Blue. Advantage, Giants.
