This led to an NFL stint with the Cincinnati Bengals this past preseason. Saylors saw action in their final game, posting 27 rushing yards on nine attempts. He also spent some time on the Atlanta Falcons practice squad.

Now, Jacob turns to the UFL after a few months as a free agent, joining the St. Louis Battlehawks for the 2024 season.
General Manager Dave Boller and Head Coach Anthony Becht have put an emphasis on pursuing former NFL talent, especially in their backfield. The team recently signed Wayne Gallman, who has NFL experience as a starter with the New York Giants.
With Mateo Durant and Kevon Latulas also rostered, it’ll be interesting to watch who makes the final cut in training camp – which begins in just a few weeks.
