49ers Reach An Agreement With RB Brandon Jacobs

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area tweets that the decision to sign RB Brandon Jacobs was because they “don’t have confidence in” Anthony Dixon and see Kendall Hunter as a “change-of-pace” back.

The “change-of-pace” label isn’t a great sign for Hunter moving forward, but he’s still young and has plenty of time to prove that he can be a much more effective player. For the time being, it looks like it’s going to be Frank Gore and Jacobs majority of the time.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the San Francisco 49ers have reached an agreement with former Giants RB Brandon Jacobs.

Interest in Jacobs appeared to be limited after the Giants chose to release him a few weeks ago. New York wasn’t willing to pay him a base salary of $2.5 million but offered him an incentive-based contract that could push his salary up to that total. Jacobs ultimately declined but kept the option of a possible return open.

The 49ers will now have a bruising running back to go with Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter. We have Jacobs listed as the #37 best available free agent in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
