Instead of heading to New Orleans next week to play in the Super Bowl, Brandon Jacobs will have to watch on television as his former teammates take the field to play the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday.
Jacobs was suspended for the remainder of the regular season for conduct detrimental to the team in December and then released at the start of the postseason.
But Jacobs doesn’t regret his time with San Francisco and is still rooting for his former team to win the Super Bowl.
“My emotions are I want the 49ers to win the game,” Jacobs said, via Mike Garafolo of the USA Today. “I don’t have any regrets about not being there whatsoever. I don’t feel like I should’ve done things differently. I don’t feel anything else. I’m a hundred percent happy where I am.”
Jacobs voiced his frustration with the 49ers on a handful of occasions before being removed from the roster in December. He was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team after airing his frustrations on Twitter.
“I didn’t mean to disrespect anybody or hurt anybody’s feelings,” Jacobs said. “I didn’t have any disrespect. I didn’t mean to do any of that. I was told I would get some of the pie and I didn’t. That kind of made me a little upset and made me snap.”
Jacobs was inactive for most of the season before an injury to Kendall Hunter finally got him some playing time late in the year. He was active for two games and carried the ball just five times for seven yards.
