Panthers re-sign LB Ben Jacobs to two-year deal
Posted February 8
Charlotte, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers have re-signed linebacker Ben Jacobs to a two-year contract, the team announced Wednesday.
Financial terms of the deal have not been released.
Jacobs, 28, was released by Carolina on Sept. 4, 2016 after an injury settlement, but returned to play the final four games of the 2016 season.
The four-year linebacker signed with the Cleveland as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State in 2011 and spent one season with the Browns.
Jacobs joined the Panthers’ practice squad in 2013 but played in all 16 games, and led the teams in special teams tackles, the following year.
The Las Vegas native also appeared in every regular season and postseason contest in 2015, tallying eight special teams tackles.
