"It was just money, that's all it was, a couple hundred thousand (dollars)," Jacobs told Rome, per The Star-Ledger.
If it came down to "just a couple hundred thousand bucks," Rome asked, wouldn't the Giants want to bring Jacobs back?
"You would think so," Jacobs said.
It's clear the Giants were prepared to move on. Jacobs, at his best, was a powerful, downhill runner who used his 6-foot-4 frame to smash into -- and through -- defenses. He compiled 4,849 yards during his seven seasons in New York, but his production tailed off. We didn't see that same player last season, and he isn't a sure bet to make San Francisco's roster.
