After a terrible game by starting running back David Wilson against the Cowboys, the Giants knew they needed a backup that could not only run with the football but put a body in between the defenders and Eli.

Welcome back Brandon Jacobs!

After a workout with the team on Tuesday, the big bruising ex Giants running back signed on with the team to give it another go.

The 31 year old was signed for 1 year deal after the Giants made room on their roster by cutting Adewale Ojomo.

Jacobs is obviously familiar with the Giants players and their playbook. Antrel Rolle even said he would love to have his “brother” back.

Antrel got his wish.
