"Jacobs will meet with Giants management today and ask to be traded. Might not be a bad idea for both sides," DiTrani wrote on his Twitter page.
Jacobs, in his sixth season with the Giants, carried the ball just four times in Sunday's 38-14 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
Jacobs also apologized for throwing his helmet into the stands during the third quarter.
Jacobs apparently tried to throw his helmet down, but instead, it flew into the stands. Security personnel had to retrieve the helmet from fans while Jacobs appeared to be explaining to Giants coach Tom Coughlin what happened.
Jacobs had three carries for eight yards in the first half and had only one rush for no yards in the third quarter, frustrating Coughlin.

"We've seen too much of that, that east and west stuff," Coughlin said of Jacobs' running style against the Colts. "Find someplace to go and get up. Get up north."
Jacobs, who ran for 835 yards and five touchdowns last season, has 3,499 rushing yards and 43 touchdowns in his six-year NFL career.
