After 9 years in this whirlwind business they call the NFL, I am proud to announce that I am hanging up my cleats. I've had an amazing run and I appreciate all of the support from the fans through the good and the bad. The New York Giants are a great organization and I am proud to have been a part of it for so long. I love my coaches and my teammates and will miss them as well as the game itself but I am healing well from my surgery and I look forward to running around with my kids for years to come!
Jacobs played for 9 seasons, 8 with the Giants and has 5,094 rushing yards and 64 total touchdowns. He was apart of both Giants teams that won Super Bowls in 2007 and 2011.
