I really like the fact that Holsey is the only guy we've added after April and Holsey isn't expected to play that big a role. Our few rookies are in the fold and this team has largely been together for every workout in the offseason. This is very good news for us considering we've been adding major pieces in August each of the last couple of years.

Jacobs Signs, Expected to Practice Monday

07/27/2003

Ashburn, VA – The Washington Redskins announced today they have signed 2003 second-round draft selection wide receiver Taylor Jacobs (44th overall). Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

During spring mini-camp workouts and coaching sessions, Jacobs has shown his skills as a precise route-runner with exceptional speed and quickness. He brings good size and has the toughness to compete for the ball in traffic. Jacobs is re-united with Redskins head coach Steve Spurrier, who coached him at Florida from 1999-01.

Jacobs, 6-0, 198 lbs., finished his college career with 133 catches for 2,097 yards (15.8 avg.) and 16 touchdowns while starting 18 of 44 games. His 133 catches rank sixth and his 2,097 yards rank eighth on the school’s career-record lists. He was also one of only eight players in school history to gain over 100 yards receiving in consecutive games.

He finished his senior season as a semi-finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation’s top receiver and was also named All-SEC first team by the league’s coaches, The Sporting News, and Associated Press. Jacobs led the conference in receiving with 71 catches for 1,088 (15.3 avg.) yards and eight touchdowns. His junior season he had 38 catches for 712 yards and seven touchdowns and also gained 29 yards on four carries. In the Orange Bowl against Maryland, he had 10 catches for 170 yards and two touchdowns. His sophomore season, he showed flashes of his ability when he appeared in 12 games with five starts, catching 17 balls for 198 yards (18.7 avg.) and two touchdowns. He also gained 11 yards with a touchdown on three carries. He was the only true freshman to play in 1999, and he appeared in 10 of 12 games and had seven catches for 99 yards (14.1 avg.). Jacobs was also clocked at 4.42 in the 40-yard dash and also ran track at Florida. He was a sociology major at Florida.

Jacobs attended Florida A & M Prep in Tallahassee, FL and played for his father, Harry Jacobs. He was named to PrepStar’s All-America team and was first team All-State as a senior. He caught 33 passes for 685 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior. His senior season, Jacobs showed his athleticism at both receiver and quarterback, catching 37 passes for 685 yards and six touchdowns at receiver, and rushing for 362 yards as a quarterback. He also lettered in baseball and track.

The Redskins also announced they have waived wide receiver Justin Skaggs, offensive lineman Alex Sulfsted and defensive end Durrand Roundtree.

WE remain healthy and there arent any excuses for us not to be in the playoffs.

If BDW does renegotiate (saving us 2 million) then we should have the dollars to sign Champ to a deal to make him a lifelong skin.

Then with a successful season we should be able to target Lavar next.
