The man who backed up Tiki Barber for two seasons supports his NFL comeback attempt.
"I thought it was absolutely phenomenal that he decided to come back," Jacobs said Tuesday while standing outside the team's East Rutherford, N.J., headquarters. "I thought it was good for him and I think he can still play, because he wasn't one to take a lot of big hits, and the type of game he played, I think he can be out for four years and be able to jump in and do it."
"I spoke to him, I've seen him twice … he's excited about doing it," Jacobs said of Barber's comeback. "A lot of people think he's doing it for the wrong reasons, but I just think me, personally, he missed it.
"For his image, I think football is good for him. It helps build up our images, according to the way you handle it. It can break you down or it can make you a whole hell of a lot better."
