Running back Brandon Jacobs has reached an agreement with the San Francisco 49ers, ESPN reports. The 29-year-old veteran was due a $500,000 bonus and $4.4 million this year from the Giants before they released him earlier this month.
Jacobs will join former Giants teammate Mario Manningham who signed a two year contract with the 49ers earlier this week. Jacobs’ signed a one year deal, worth a little less than $2 million. He will most likely be the back up to 49ers go-to back, Frank Gore and could share the role with Kendall Hunter. Jacobs ran for 571 yards and seven touchdowns in the 2011 regular season as a back up to Ahmad Bradshaw. This upcoming season will mark the eighth year for the Superbowl champion and it could be his last, as he turns 30 in July.
