According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports, running back Brandon Jacobs plans on filing a grievance with the NFL Players Association now that the 49ers have suspended him for the final three games of the regular season.
Brandon Jacobs will be filing a grievance in hopes of getting reinstated, getting his money or getting his ticket out of SF.

Jacobs went on a Twitter rant about his displeasure with his lack of playing time.
My guess is that the 49ers are suspending Jacobs for conduct detrimental to the team. I’m sure he’d love to become a free agent right now because I’m sure the Giants would jump on signing him with all the injuries they’ve endured at the running back position.
