Former Giants running back Brandon Jacobs is considering an NFL comeback at defensive end, at least according to his tweets. He was inspired by Tim Tebow, and we have no clue why. I’m just saying that I don’t think fans will line up for a Brandon Jacobs jersey — that’s all.
And if you don’t support his dream to return to the NFL — well, apparently it’s because you’re white. Can’t discuss sports without going there, can we?
Well since Tebow came back after being off a good bit, I am announcing today that I to will comeback. I will play defensive end for whatever team gives me a chance!!!— Brandon Jacobs (@BrandonJacobs27) May 27, 2021
I am really serious about coming back as a defensive end. I can still run, I am strong and there’s no way Tim Tebow is a better athlete than I am. I just need a shot that’s it!! If I can’t cut it I’ll take it like a man. Just give me one chance that’s all!!— Brandon Jacobs (@BrandonJacobs27) May 27, 2021
Why is it only the white people upset with me?— Brandon Jacobs (@BrandonJacobs27) May 28, 2021
It’s always racism
What Jacobs fails to realize is that he made just north of $15 million over his nine-year career, largely because of the support from “white people.”
When people help him make millions, he calls them one of the best fan bases in all of sports. When they say his plan to return to the NFL is ridiculous, which most of Twitter has said, he calls them racist.
So NFL Twitter has to support everyone’s dreams, no matter how ludicrous they sound?
The 6-foot-4, 275 pound former running back would fail miserably in his return to the NFL. Tim Tebow has an opportunity because, regardless of his performance, he adds value to the Jacksonville Jaguars by selling jerseys. That’s part of the business, Jacob.
If anyone’s a hater, it’s Brandon Jacobs.
