Even though he signed a four-year contract with the Giants this winter, Brandon Jacobs isn't wasting any time preparing for life after football. Jacobs has started moonlighting as a boxing manager, with plans to expand his business once he's done on the gridiron.
The career choice makes sense. Right now, Jacobs profits from treating his body like a battering ram in search of yards and touchdowns. Making money off of other people putting their own bodies through hell is a natural fit, and you'd expect that Jacobs would be more respectful of what boxers put themselves through than the stereotypically callous ones we're more familiar with.
"I've been wanting to get into the business after I was done playing," Jacobs said. "If I didn't fight, I wanted to get into the promotion business, but I hear from people that's a lot of headaches. So I wanted to do something that was more personable with the fighters."
