Default It's OFFICIAL this time. Omar Jacobs is Signed

Steelers Sign Rookie Quarterback Omar Jacobs

PITTSBURGH ? The Steelers announced they have reached a contract agreement with rookie quarterback Omar Jacobs, it was announced today. Financial terms of the multi-year deal were not released.

Jacobs (6-4, 224) was the first of two fifth-round selections (164th overall) for the Steelers in the 2006 NFL Draft.

In just 25 games at Bowling Green, Jacobs ranks fifth in school annals with 523 pass completions and third with 6,938 passing yards. He also tossed Falcon-best 71 career touchdown passes.

A second-team All-American as a sophomore, Jacobs tied the NCAA Division 1-A season record in 2004 by attempting 224 consecutive passes without throwing an interception. He finished the season with 41 touchdown passes to just four interceptions, establishing an NCAA record. Last year as a junior, Jacobs was a semifinalist for the Davey O'Brien Award, given annually to the nation's top quarterback, and was an All-Mid-American Conference honoree.

Following the signing of Jacobs, the Steelers have inked seven of their nine draft picks.

Good news... I am glad to see him in on time and challenging for that 3rd QB spot.. I think he will be our 3rd stringer this season and take over that #2 spot next year. He has all the natural tools and is obviously pretty smart with his decisions with the td's to int's ratio which is remarkable no matter what coference you play in. And that MAC conference has produced some pretty decent qb's the last few years and none had no where close to those numbers. Now if we can just get our WR's signed.. Come on Holmes... you owe the Steelers... and you should be here on time...
God Bless

At this point, I thought Reid would have been signed. I don't understand the hold up. I'm normally patient when it comes to signings, but Reid not being signed at this point concerns me more than Holmes. Should be getting around the same as Smith I would have to believe. That's why I'm not exactly sure of the hold up.

That's good news. I'm looking forward to seeing what this guy can do in pre-season. He looks like he has the skill set to go far in the league.

Then his agent stated on KDKA news that the rumors are false and a deal has not been reached.

I love it when PFT's "source" turns out to be bogus. I'm embarassed for being caught at that site.

maybe willie reid knows hes gonna be better than santonio. (think 3rd round hines vs. 1st round edwards)

im more concerned about holmes signing. the books have been set for what reid will be getting. he dont have much of a bargaining chip at all. at this point hes deep on the depth chart but maybe he feels hes gonna get alot of touches as a returner and deserves a little more. i cant blame his agent if he wants to see what the 1st rounder gets before signing.

Who cares if Holmes and Reid don't sign by the start of camp. The players only report on Friday. The first practice isn't till Sunday. Now by if they are not signed by Sunday then lets worry alittle.
