if he outworks and outplays dixon in camp that tells us all we need to know about dixon.Besides he can help spell gore for a year , we do not have to spend a draft choice on a back and can draft gores eventual replacement next year. sheesh, i am all for signing guys who just won super bowls and want to play for us.i do not concern myself with worries that he runs his mouth cuz i know the coach and his coaches will nip that in the bud if it goes to far.i do not think there is a problem with our team having a little edge to it.i have always said in the second off season and in the second year of a coaches regime is where you really see major changes in terms of what they want to do and what players they do not want from the previous regime. Spencer is an example, chilo is an example, norris will be soon and that is why i think the jury is still out on crabtree. the second year is when you see big changes
SF isn't NY. Jacobs will not face the type of media out here that he faced there, which means less opportunities for his to say something stupid.
Jacobs is a nice add. I would have preferred trading for Jonathan Stewart or adding an every down back through the draft (which we might still do) but Jacobs is a two-time SB winner and, when motivated, can be a handful. He's not perfect, but none of the 49ers free agent signings are. It would appear that the 49ers are looking to add depth and competition through free agency, which should allow them to key on BPA in the draft and not give any other team a "tell" with respect to what positions they are targeting.
