"All that part will work itself out. As far as competing, that will make everyone of us better," Jacobs told the team's official website, after signing his one-year contract Friday. "It makes us better as a team, it makes us better at our job. I'm looking forward to the opportunity of playing with Frank."
"It's a good football team and really close," Jacobs said. "And I felt wanted. I felt they really wanted me around and I was excited about it."
Jacobs' one-year deal doesn't show tremendous faith from the 49ers, but undoubtedly they are attracted to his playoff experience (and possibly his knowledge of the Giants' offense). The 49ers came close enough to the Super Bowl last season that adding a veteran like Jacobs makes some sense in April. Time will tell if it makes sense come September.
