Brandon Jacobs may be headed for a reunion with the New York Giants, as Kyle Bonagura of CBSsports.com reports that Brandon Jacobs is no longer a member of the San Francisco 49ers. We've not yet heard that they've officially released him, but he has cleaned out his locker and the team is "moving on without him."
It's been a long season of discord between Jacobs and his new employer, after injuries limited the big guy and playing time never materialized. Jacobs complained about playing time as recently as a few days ago and created a mini-stir when he posted a photo of him winning the Super Bowl with the Giants on Instagram.
There's no smoke between the Giants and the player yet (Bonagura's original tweet was only half an hour ago) but you better believe big puffs of smoke are coming, whether there's fire behind it or not.
For one, the Giants are thin at the running back position: Ahmad Bradshaw is having an MRI and other tests on his knee, David Wilson has all of 41 NFL rushing attempts, and Kregg Lumpkin and Ryan Torain have been on the roster for less than a month — combined.
Jacobs would have little, if any, learning curve with the offense. And given his lack of playing time this year, you'd think there'd be something in the tank…not to mention a healthy dose of that famous Jacobs anger that always fueled his best running.
The Giants could use him and after his partial-season in San Fran you'd think he wouldn't mind coming home. Whether it happens is up to Jerry Reese and Tom Coughlin, who you can bet top dollar will be asked about #27 tomorrow.
We're just giving you a head start on the topic. Stay tuned…
