Brandon Jacobs wants more Jets involved with...


Beginning in 2017, former New York Giants safety Landon Collins would hold an annual celebrity softball game with the proceeds benefiting various charities, including the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund.

The game itself has become a popular event for fans of the Giants, but more than just that, it has become an extremely popular event among current and former members of the team.

Every year, dozens of players arrive from all over the country to take part in the game, which was kept going in 2019 despite Collins leaving the Giants to sign with the Washington Redskins.

Here in 2020, it’s unlikely Collins will be a part of the charity game, but it will persist in his absence. Who hosts it this time around remains to be seen (Saquon Barkley, anyone?), but one thing is for certain: former Giants running back Brandon Jacobs wants to see more New York Jets involved this year.

Jacobs has called for more involvement from the Jets previously, and while some players have shown up, it continues to be a very Giants-heavy event.

“We want the Jets,” Jacobs said in 2019, later sending a tweet calling for the same.

In 2015, prior to Landon Collins version of the event, the game did feature the Giants vs. the Jets as a one-off. The Giants were captained by David Wilson and the Jets by Muhamed Wilkerson, but the two sides were never able to recreate the matchup.

Could Jacobs’ calls here in 2020 finally get it done?
