VOTE: Did Redskins Leave RG3 In The Game Too Long?
Huffington Post Sports - about 4 years
RG3 said it was his call to stay in the game. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan admitted that he deferred to his rookie quarterback. We've yet to hear what renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews thought during this game but it's already been reported that he's not necessarily on the same page as everyone else on the Redskins' sideline. Regardless of who had the final say, a visibly-hampered Robert Griffin III remained on the field against the Seattle Seahawks deep into the fourth quarter on Sunday until another hard-to-watch knee injury ended his night. Even before Griffin's right knee buckled as he tried to field a low snap, FOX play-by-play announcer Joe Buck speculated that the Redskins might be better off turning to back-up Kirk Cousins. Social media was abuzz with talk about Cousins, as well. Such a move may have protected Griffin from further injury after he quite clearly re-aggravated his preexisting knee injury during the team's second drive of the fir ...

49ers strike deal with RB Brandon Jacobs
The Sacramento Bee - almost 5 years
Looking for a short-yardage running back as well as someone who could start if Frank Gore got injured, the 49ers on Wednesday agreed to terms with former Giants running back Brandon Jacobs on a one-year deal. The Bee had reported on the 49ers' interest in Jacobs; ESPN first reported the deal. At 6-4, 264 pounds, Jacobs is the biggest tailback in the NFL, and he ran for more than 1,000 yards in 2007 and in 2008. Last year, however, Jacobs' per-carry average dropped to 3.8 yards, his lowest in six seasons, and he started six games. Jacobs turns 30 in July. However, his size always has made him a difficult runner to tackle, and in that way he meshes with the 49ers' power-based approach. Jacobs scored seven touchdowns last season, although he struggled in short-yardage carries at times for the Giants. The team has been in contact with Jacobs' agent since he was released earlier this month. General manager Trent Baalke is on record as saying the trend in the NFL is to h ...
