49ers announce Brandon Jacobs deal
The 49ers made the announcement Friday, more than a week after the two sides agreed to terms. Jacobs was released on March 9 by the Super Bowl champion Giants after both failed to work out a restructured contract.
Jacobs spent seven seasons with New York, winning two Super Bowls and helping the Giants beat the 49ers 20-17 in overtime of the NFC championship game at Candlestick Park on Jan. 22. The 29-year-old Jacobs ran for 571 yards and seven touchdowns last season as his role diminished behind emerging Ahmad Bradshaw.
