49ers suspended RB Brandon Jacobs is reportedly saying that he'll only play for one team going forward -- the Giants.
The 49ers likely reconsidered waiving Jacobs when they realized his intentions; to bad-boy his way out of San Francisco in hopes of a Giants reunion. So rather than cut him, the Niners stuck him on their reserve/suspended list and Jacobs won't be eligible to play during the final three weeks of the regular season.
49ers suspended RB Brandon Jacobs for the final three games of the regular season.
Updating a previous item, Jacobs was not waived. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh isn't letting him off that easy. Jacobs had complained about his role in recent weeks, and he had no value to the Niners other than depth behind Frank Gore, new change-of-pace back LaMichael James, and short-yardage option Anthony Dixon. Rather than waive Jacobs and let him go to a fellow NFC playoff contender like the Giants, the 49ers are stashing him on the reserve/suspended list.
Brandon Jacobs expressed frustration with his role in San Francisco by saying he is "on this team rotting away."
"This is by far the worst year I ever had, I'll tell you like I told plenty others," said Jacobs. The comments were posted on Jacobs' Instagram account after fans threw a fit because he posted pictures of himself playing for the Giants, instead of the 49ers. Despite being a good teammate for much of the season, Jacobs' frustration is starting to boil over. He has just five carries for seven yards on the season and isn't expected to be much of a factor down the stretch, even with Kendall Hunter out.
