The Detroit Lions have a player in cornerback Jerry Jacobs that feels poised to become a star in the NFL given what he brings to the mix.

Last season, when Jacobs went down with an ACL injury, it was one of the more unfortunate misfortunes the team endured. Jacobs made the team as an undrafted free agent and scrapped for a role, and once he was excelling, the injury bug bit.

That was then and this is now, however. Almost a year later, Jacobs is back and is clearly feeling good about where he is trending the rest of the year.

Speaking to Tim Twentyman on the Twentyman in the Huddle podcast, Jacobs explained what it felt to get back on the field. As he said, he almost couldn’t believe what he was able to do for the team, either.
