The Giants on Friday released running back Brandon Jacobs after seven years in New York.

 
Jacobs, 29, ran for 571 yards and seven touchdowns last season as the Giants won the Super Bowl. He wanted to stay with the champions, but a restructured deal could not be agreed to by both parties, signaling the end of a solid Giants career.
 
In fact, he is the fourth-leading rusher in franchise history with 4,849 yards, but has seen his role diminish with the emergence of Ahmad Bradshaw. He won two Super Bowl titles as a Giant.
