"With the deadline approaching it was the right business thing to do at this point, although we are hopeful to get a longer term deal hammered out in the near future," general manager Jerry Reese said. "I did speak to Brandon and we had a very good conversation today."

They'd be fools not to, Jacobs is their best back and maybe the strongest in the league. Earth, wind, and fire (at least I think that's what the trio of him, Ward, and Bradshaw is called) lives on!
