EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – According to multiple reports, the Giants have brought back Brandon Jacobs on a one-year deal.

He was waived by the San Francisco 49ers on December 31.

Jacobs battled injuries in San Francisco. He only played two games for the 49ers and was suspended for the end of the 2012 season for a number of social media messages criticizing the team over his lack of playing time.

The Giants selected Jacobs in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He was released by the Giants on March 9, 2012 after seven seasons in New York.

Running back David Wilson was benched by head coach Tom Coughlin after Wilson fumbled twice during the Giants’ season-opening loss in Dallas.

When Antrel Rolle joined WFAN radio’s “Joe and Evan” on Tuesday afternoon, he referred to Jacobs as a “brother.

Now at 31, Jacobs is set to return to where his NFL career began.
