His succinct message of “Thank You Detroit” has sparked conversations about his future with the Lions, especially following his absence from Thursday's practice.

Why it Matters

Jacobs, who has been a regular presence in the Lions' lineup, last played on December 10th in a game against the Chicago Bears. Over the course of the 2023 season, he played 15 games, defending 8 passes and securing three interceptions. Despite these contributions, Jacobs' performance was rated at a modest 57.1 grade by Pro Football Focus, a score that raises questions about his impact on the team's overall defensive efficacy.

Bottom Line

Of course, Jacobs' post on “X” does not necessarily mean he has played his final game with the Lions this season, but considering he has not played in a month, it is certainly a possibility. As the Lions prepare for their Wild Card playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams, you can bet they are doing everything they can to put their best roster on the field. If that means Jacobs won't play, then so be it.
