The 49ers suspended and cut Brandon Jacobs during this season, but that doesn't mean the former running back holds any ill will against the team. He'll be cheering for San Francisco to win the Super Bowl.
"I want the 49ers to win the game," Jacobs told 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 100 percent happy where I am."
Jacobs and the 49ers had a frosty relationship all season and things didn't get any better in mid-December when Jacobs took to Instagram and posted a picture of him in a New York Giants uniform. At the time, Jacobs wrote, "I am on this team rotting away, so why would I wanna put any pics up that say Niners this is by far the worst year I ever had."
One day after the Instagram tirade, the team announced that Jacobs would be suspended. He was later released on Dec. 31, the day after the regular-season finale against Arizona.
Despite going on a social media tirade, Jacobs said he didn't feel like he was going to be suspended or cut.

"I never had that sense. The whole thing happened out of nowhere," Jacobs said. "I didn't get a warning about anything. It just happened."
Jacobs finished the season with five carries for seven yards, but that doesn't mean he won't get a Super Bowl ring.
As USA Today notes, it's currently unclear whether Jacobs will get one. If he does, it will be the third ring of his career. He won two during his seven-year career with the Giants.
