Jacobs, 30, wound up signing on with the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State back in 2011. He spent over a year in Cleveland before briefly playing for the Bengals and later signing a future/reserve contract with the Panthers at the end of the 2014 season.
The Panthers re-signed Jacobs to a two-year contract in 2017. He was in line to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but this gives him a head start on finding another job.
In 2018, Jacobs appeared in all 16 games for the Panthers and recorded six tackles.
