Jacobs Out - Gilmore Back In


Fifth-year veteran Taylor Jacobs, (below), a former second-round draft pick of the Washington Redskins, was released Tuesday by the 49ers despite having served as the club's No. 3 wide receiver for the first four games of the season.

"Taylor has exceptional skills, but we were not getting the production that we need at that position," coach Mike Nolan told the team's Web site. In four games, Jacobs had three receptions for 40 yards and one touchdown. To replace Jacobs on the roster, San Francisco signed free agent wideout Bryan Gilmore, who was with the 49ers last season and in training camp this summer. Gilmore (right) was one of the last players released by the 49ers before the start of the regular season. A seven-year veteran, Gilmore has 46 catches for 683 yards and five touchdowns. He has appeared in 68 games in stints with Arizona (2002-05) and the 49ers (2006). Because of his familiarity with the San Francisco offense, Gilmore should be able to step right in and contribute immediately to a passing offense in need of a spark. Jacobs, 26, becomes the latest former University of Florida wide receiver to struggle at the NFL level.

Acquired by the 49ers in an August 2006 trade, Jacobs had only four receptions for 29 yards and no touchdowns in his first season in San Francisco. Although blessed with deep speed, he has never exhibited much consistency and has never posted more than 16 receptions in a season. For his career, Jacobs has only 37 catches for 384 yards and two touchdowns, while appearing in 50 games.

- Hopefully, this will give Trent Dilfer an opportunity to gell with at least one receiver for the stretch of games he is now slated to start with Alex Smith's injury. Apparently, this roster change will also help open the door a bit for either rookie Jason Hill or thus-far disappointing Ashley Lelie to find a role in the struggling offense.-
