New York Giants RB to Replace Pierre-Paul at Impact Tonight

Nick Paglino

Impact WrestlingAlex Marvez of FOXSports.com is reporting that New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs will be replacing Jason Pierre-Paul at tonight's TNA Impact Wrestling tapings. The following is an excerpt from the report:

A source told FOXSports.com that Jacobs will step into the ring Monday night television during a TNA Wrestling television taping in Orlando, Fla. Jacobs will be taking the spot originally offered to Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who pulled out of his appearance Sunday because of post-season exhaustion.

The 6-foot-4, 264-pound Jacobs is expected to have a confrontation with TNA star and 1996 U.S. Olympic gold-medalist wrestler Kurt Angle. Jacobs won’t work an actual match but there may be some degree of physicality that wouldn’t violate his NFL contract.
