Brandon Jacobs' time with the 49ers came to an end on Monday. The eight-year veteran was released after playing in only two games this season. Jacobs was inactive for 10 games before being suspended for the final three games of the regular season.
Despite his short tenure with the 49ers, Jacobs thanked the team for the opportunity on his Twitter.
"Don't be alarmed this was the plan, in saying that I wanna thank them for the opportunity, I wish the team luck in the playoffs"
Jacobs previously mentioned on his Twitter how he was rotting away and how he didn't like being with the 49ers. On his Instagram, he was saying the team wouldn't let him out and posted pictures of him with New York Giants apparel. Despite an injury to backup RB Kendall Hunter, the 49ers viewed him as expendable and chose to use rookie LaMichael James instead. Special teams player Anthony Dixon would even receive more carries than him. Jacobs finished with five carries for seven yards with the 49ers.
He said the only NFL team he would play for is the New York Giants. Teams cannot pick up Jacobs to play for this season once the 49ers waive him. He can be claimed by a team, but can't report until after the Super Bowl.
