USU's Al Lapuaho, Chuck Jacobs sign NFL free agent contracts

At least two more Utah State players have signed NFL free agent contacts.

The school announced Saturday night that defensive tackle Al Lapuaho had signed with the St. Louis Rams, and receiver Chuck Jacobs had signed with the San Francisco 49ers. With Will Davis and Kerwynn Williams being taken in the NFL Draft, and Matt Austin quickly signing a contract with the Seattle Seahawks, five Aggies from the program's 2012 season now know where they'll be headed this summer.

A native of West Valley City, Lapuaho came to Logan two years ago from Snow College. He put an exclamation point on his stint with the Aggies with 35 tackles, 4.5 tackles for a loss and 3 sacks on his way to all-WAC honors last season. Lapuaho was USU's top bench press performer at Pro Day.

Jacobs came to Utah State from Richmond, Calif., by way of Laney Junior College. He had 41 receptions for 608 yards and five touchdowns, but also was one of the WAC's top kick returners, averaging 24.1 yards per return.
