Brandon Jacobs to file grievance against 49ers


The 49ers have suspended running back Brandon Jacobs three games without pay. And even though he’s not happy to be playing for the 49ers, he’s even more not happy to be not playing for the 49ers, especially since he will now be getting not paid by the 49ers.

According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today, Jacobs will be filing a grievance aimed at securing his reinstatement, receiving his pay, or getting released by the 49ers.

With Jacobs earning a base salary of $950,000 in 2012, he’ll lose more than $167,000, if the suspension is upheld.
