TebowMania resurfacing within the NFL has apparently been inspiring to at the least one former participant who’s now in search of a path again onto the sphere. On Thursday, former New York Giants working again Brandon Jacobs took to social media to introduced that he’s seeking to make a comeback.

I do know what you are pondering: He needs to be joking. He is simply trolling Tebow right here for just a few retweets, proper?
“I’m actually critical about coming again as a defensive finish,” Jacobs adopted up. “I can nonetheless run, I’m robust and there is no manner Tim Tebow is a greater athlete than I’m. I simply want a shot that is it!! If I am unable to minimize it I will take it like a person. Simply give me one likelihood that is all!!”

In fact, this new mission by Jacobs stems from former quarterback Tim Tebow coming again into the league with the Jacksonville Jaguars as a decent finish. Tebow was final on an NFL roster in 2015 earlier than leaving the game to attempt his hand at baseball throughout the New York Mets group. After spending the earlier 5 years throughout the membership’s minor league system, he walked away from baseball and has since discovered his manner again to the NFL as he is reunited along with his former faculty coach in City Meyer, who’s coming into his first season because the Jaguars head coach.
In the meantime, Jacobs — who will flip 39 previous to the beginning of the 2021 season — final performed within the NFL in 2013. That season, the two-time Tremendous Bowl champion appeared in seven video games and totaled 238 yards on the bottom on 4.1 yards per carry and 4 touchdowns. That following offseason, he introduced his retirement from the league after a nine-year profession that was largely spent with the New York Giants, who took him within the fourth spherical of the 2005 NFL Draft. For his profession (eight years with New York, one yr with San Francisco), he completed with 5,094 yards speeding and 60 touchdowns on the bottom.
Will Jacobs really get a name from a crew prepared to tackle this summer season science experiment? Stranger issues have occurred.
