49ers Brandon Jacobs eyeballs goal-line duties in San Fran

Quote:
Cut last month by the Giants, running back Brandon Jacobs officially has joined the 49ers, via a one-year, $2 million contract, which re-confirms that young players would be better off learning how to kick the ball than to run with it.

Gore met the San Fran media via conference call for the first time on Friday. While he tried his best to say all the right things, he slipped on at least one occasion.

Asked whether starter Frank Gore or Jacobs should get the ball at the goal line, Jacobs said (via the Bay Area News Group), “Well, being 25 or 35 pounds heavier than Frank, I’d hope I’ll be the one to get it.”

Jacobs then caught himself.

“But Frank has done great in that area the last seven years,” Jacobs said. “We came into the league the same year. He’s done great. He has no issue getting in. It’s whatever is best for the team.”

Jacobs also said that he grew up in Louisiana as a 49ers fan. “One, I never did like the Saints, [and] never did like Dallas,” Jacobs said. “The 49ers, when I chose them as my team, I barely knew anything about football. I was only eight years old and only liked their uniforms. That’s what drew me to the 49ers. And I stuck with them.”

Whether the 49ers stick with Jacobs depends on how well he performs. If he should slip past No. 2 on the depth chart in training camp, he may not make the final 53-man roster — unless he’s willing to play special teams.
