The logic is, if the Niners cut Jacobs, he could sign with a team the Niners might meet in the playoffs, especially someone in need of running back help (Hello, Giants. Hello, Packers) and why do anything that hurts our team and helps someone else?
Jacobs is just Ron Dayne Reborn. A big power back that goes down on the first hit. He's a backup at best and on a team with our depth a backup's backup.
I would bet he wins his grievance and the 49ers have to pay him, but they won't release him until after the playoffs. Then, we'll see who wants to be bothered with his punk a**
