It didn’t take Brandon Jacobs long to find a new home after his release from the Giants. Wednesday, the Running back signed a deal with the San Francisco 49ers. The Giants released Jacobs earlier this month, rather than pay him a $500,000 bonus to go along with the $4.4 million he was due this season.

Jacobs will join his Giants teammate Mario Manningham in San Francisco, who signed a two year contract with the club last week.

This past season with the Giants, Jacobs had 152 carries for 571 yards and 7 touchdowns. In the passing game, he had 15 receptions for 128 yards and a TD. These were Jacobs’ lowest totals since 2006.

A few hours before the signing, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said bringing Jacobs back to New York was a “possibilty”. The Giants wanted to have Jacobs’ services, they were just looking for the right price.
