Waived WR Darvin Kidsy.
Jacobson played 67 games at Iowa State over two seasons, averaging over 9 points and 6 rebounds a game. He was instrumental in Iowa State’s Big 12 tournament championship run during his Junior season. Jacobson spent last year playing for Kyiv-Basket of the Ukrainian Basketball League.
Jacobson has a very good football background. He earned a scholarship from Iowa State to play football before deciding to take the basketball route. Seattle has a history of trying to take former basketball players and convert them to tight ends. Hopefully this time it works out for Jacobson.
