Harry Edwards Jacobs (born February 4, 1937) is a former American college and professional football player.

A linebacker, he played college football for Bradley University and in the American Football League for the Boston Patriots from 1960 through 1962, and for the Buffalo Bills from 1963 through 1969. He played in the playoffs four straight years (1963–1966) with the Bills, and was an AFL All-Star in 1965 and 1969. With John Tracey and Mike Stratton he filled out one of pro football's best linebacking units, which played together for 62 consecutive games from 1963 through 1967, a professional football record. They helped the Bills' formidable front four hold opposing teams without a 100-yard rusher for seventeen consecutive games in 1964 and 1965, and achieved American Football League championships in both those years. He is one of only twenty players who played in the American Football League throughout its ten-year existence.
