Straight up BJ > Blumpkin
Jacobs is aiming his grievance at one of three options — getting reinstated, receiving the rest of the money on his contract, or being released by the 49ers.
To be fair it's really the 49ers trapping Jacobs that's the real problem. He would get out on the field in a heartbeat and run his heart out for the niners if they gave him that chance. Hell the only time I saw him run all season he converted a 2nd and 6 up the middle. This isn't like the Tiki situation where he refuses to play at all. Jacobs wants to get on the field, and the niners refuse to use him at all, and yet, at the same time, refuse to release him...
"They come to the line of scrimmage and the first thing they do is start looking for me....I know, and they know. When they’d find me they’d start screaming: 56 left ! 56 left!....So there’s this thing I did. After the play was over I’d come up behind them and whisper: don’t worry where I am. I’ll tell you when I get there."
