49ers Waive RB Brandon Jacobs

Brandon Jacobs' three-game suspension is over. So is his San Francisco 49ers career.

Niners coach Jim Harbaugh indicated at his Monday news conference that the team would waive Jacobs, and the move was made official shortly after.

The eight-year NFL veteran had just five carries on the season and was suspended after writing negative comments about the 49ers on Instagram.

Despite an injury to backup running back Kendall Hunter, the team has no use for Jacobs.

He can’t join another team for the playoffs. Had they released him instead of suspending him, he could could have latched on with another team, and the fear that he’d join the playoff-pushing Giants at the time led to the suspension.

Jacobs has said he only will play for one team in the future: the New York Giants. That means his NFL career very likely is over.
