Brandon Jacobs who spent last season with the 49ers, was recently signed by the New York Giants. Jacobs told the New York media that the 49ers were afraid of him and that is why they did not let him go when he asked for his release. Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News had this quote from Jacobs when asked that question.[quote]‘I was told point blank that … ‘Do I look like a fool to release you to go play for somebody else and come back and play against us? Do I look like a fool?’ I felt good about it. I’m like, ‘OK, I see, you’re all scared of me.’[/quote]
Brandon Jacobs was brought in to help the 49ers in short yardage situations, but he never got the change after injuring himself early in the season.
