Properly I just listened to the information these days… that Ben Jacobs has been named the assistant special teams coordinator for the Panthers. Jacobs replaces Heath Farwell, who left Carolina to be the Buffalo Bills’ special teams coordinator.

All-natural suit for the previous Creedbombing star.

The Panthers produced Jacobs yesterday prior to him getting to be a cost-free agent in March, and there was speculation that coaching was in his foreseeable future. It appears that speculation was true.
Jacobs joins Chase Blackburn on the Panthers’ special teams coaching staff.
In information that is absolutely sure to rival the response to Eric Reid signing a new 3 yr agreement earlier these days, the Carolina Panthers have granted linebacker and special teamer Ben Jacobs his launch, per Discipline Yates.

As alluded to in the above tweet, this makes Ben Jacobs eligible to be signed by any group right away as opposed to becoming overlooked about in the cost-free agent frenzy. Moves like this are generally extended as an act of courtesy to players who have good tenure on a group, but for regardless of what motive are not likely to be re-signed. The Panthers do not owe him any further dollars, and this enables him to garner some notice throughout a time wherever not a ton is taking place throughout the league other than re-signings.
This also implies that Jacobs could obtain his way again on to the group in any case, should he not garner considerably fascination in the open up sector, as right now the Panthers need to keep their cap options open up for other priority signings.
We desire Ben Jacobs the best, as he has been a great special teamer for us for really awhile. Probably he’ll get a opportunity to enjoy far more linebacker someplace else in the league.
