The Jacksonville Jaguars waived former Wisconsin linebacker Leon Jacobs yesterday, ending his three-year run with the organization.

The move comes after Jacobs was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list last week due to an unknown issue.

The former Wisconsin Badger shined during the 2019 season when he played in 14 games, started seven of them and recorded 42 tackles, 2 sacks and 4 tackles-for-loss.

He then entered 2020 as a starter alongside another Wisconsin product in Joe Schobert. His season was cut short in just the third week, however, as Jacobs tore his ACL on just the first play of the Jaguars’ contest that week.

The former Badger is now in search of a new NFL home with preseason games right around the corner.
