The genetics in the Jacobs family are something else.

Earlier this week, former New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs posted a photo of his son, Brayden. With a follow-up tweet, the NFL veteran explained that his 14 year old stands at 6-foot-4 and 264 lbs as a rising high school freshman -- the same height and weight he clocked in during his rookie season with the Giants in 2005.

As a big-bodied offensive tackle entering his first season for St. Francis High School in Alpharetta, Georgia, Brayden has already received collegiate offers from Kansas State and Southern Illinois. He's also currently being recruited by Georgia Tech.

Brayden isn't the only Jacobs looking to make the next step in his football career. Earlier this offseason in response to Tim Tebow's signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the elder Jacobs, 38, announced his campaign to make an NFL comeback at the defensive end position.

Through nine seasons in the league from 2005-2013, Jacobs was one of the most physically intimidating running back presences in the NFL. The 6-foot-4, 250-pound back carried for a total of 5,094 yards and 60 touchdowns.

With such massive proportions at just 14 years old, Jacobs' son certainly has the potential to follow in his NFL footsteps.
