ATL: Let the bidding begin
"I think winning a championship is important, not many people have one and not many people have had a chance to play in a Super Bowl," said Jacobs, who was represented at the ceremony by his wife, Kim. "I respect that, but right now, I'm working towards the same goal with a new team."
Jacobs won a pair of Super Bowls with the Giants, but clashed with management over his contract and bristled after losing the starting job to Ahmad Bradshaw. After refusing to accept a pay cut, Jacobs was released and agreed to a one-year contract with the 49ers on March 29, one week after Manningham signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract to switch coasts.
"I talk to Mario every day," Jacobs said. "We love being here. The work is something special. I'm glad I'm here with Mario and vice-versa. It's a special thing. This football team, this coaching staff and this whole organization is great. I'm happy to be a part of it and just ready to go."
Jacobs and Manningham will face their former teammates on October 14 at Candlestick Park.
