The 6-foot-1, 246-pound linebacker played in 59 career games at Wisconsin, the most by a player in FBS history. He produced 142 tackles (15.5 for loss), 6.5 sacks and three interceptions during his five-year career with the Badgers.

Jacobs played inside and outside linebacker at Wisconsin. He also played fullback in 2016.

Jacobs was born in Nigeria.

KAYE'S TAKE: The Jaguars had a depth need at outside linebacker and Jacobs fills that void. He is likely to compete with Blair Brown at SAM linebacker.

Jacobs played a lot of football at the college level and should at least contribute on special teams if he is able to make the Jaguars' roster.
