NFL Free Agency 2012: Brandon Jacobs' Deal Includes 150K In Guaranteed Money

As with some of the other deals the San Francisco 49ers have made this offseason, like those for Randy Moss and Perrish Cox, Brandon Jacobs' deal comes with minimal risk, just like the Niners like it.

Jacobs, the former New York Giants running back who signed last week, will account for $1.575 million on the 49ers' salary cap, according to CSN Bay Area. The deal includes a $150,000 signing bonus and the rest of the money in the contract is not guaranteed.

Jacobs, a seven-year veteran, will add yet another short-yardage, power back to the Niners backfield to give Frank Gore some experienced backup. Jacobs, who is used to sharing the load in a backfield after playing with Ahmad Bradshaw in New York, has 56 rushing touchdowns in his career including seven in his last year with the Giants.
