Found December 12, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
A close friend of running back Brandon Jacobs told the New York Daily News that he was trying to get released by the 49ers in hopes of re-signing with the Giants. Brandon Jacobs realized very early this season that “he never should’ve left the Giants,” according to one of his friends. And he was hoping, the source said, that after his Instagram rant about “rotting away” and hating his boss, that he’d get cut so he could call Giants GM Jerry Reese as soon as he cleared waivers and set up his triumphant return. Unfortunately for Jacobs the 49ers ended up suspending him and clearly aren’t willing to cut him because of the chance that he would land back in New York. I really think the Giants would have re-signed Jacobs.  They’re depleted at running back and he knows their offense.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.coun...
