In the beginning of December, a disgruntled Brandon Jacobs was suspended for the final 3 games of the season and now that the regular season has ended…Jacobs has been released. I’d love to see Jacobs back with the Giants, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens next.
Report after the jump…
According to Gregg Rosenthal at NFL.com:
Niners coach Jim Harbaugh indicated at his Monday news conference that the team would waive Jacobs, and the move was made official shortly after.
The eight-year NFL veteran had just five carries on the season and was suspended after writing negative comments about the 49ers on Instagram. Despite an injury to backup running back Kendall Hunter, the team has no use for Jacobs. He also can’t join another team until after the playoffs.
Jacobs has said he only will play for one team in the future: the New York Giants. That means his NFL career very likely is over.
