New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has been fined $10,000 by the league for throwing his helmet into the stand during Sunday’s 38-14 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
Although Jacobs said it was nothing more than an accident, some of the fans in attendance claim Jacobs was jawing back and forth with them prior to the helmet landing six rows off the field. However, a Giants fan in attendance who was near the “scene of the crime” claims that wasn’t the case, and that Jacobs was very “apologetic” to the fans.
Following the game, ESPN rapidly spread rumors that Jacobs would soon demand a trade. We now know (perhaps not so surprisingly) that is not the case.

“I talked to Jerry and coach Coughlin yesterday,” Jacobs said in the statement. “Both of them asked to speak with me. I didn’t request a meeting with them. I have not demanded a trade and have no plans to demand a trade. The only demand I am making right now is of myself, to be the best player I can be and to help this team win.”
