PLANO, Texas - A convicted steroids dealer who recently met with NFL security officials and gave them names of players he said bought steroids from him was found shot to death in his home yesterday, police said.

Early yesterday morning, Plano police found David Jacobs, 35, and Amanda Jo Earhart-Savell, 30, both dead. Police said they had been shot.

Plano police said the officers were making a welfare check after relatives of Earhart-Savell expressed concern about her whereabouts. Plano detectives aren't releasing any more details.

Hank Hockeimer, Jacobs' attorney, told the Dallas Morning News that Jacobs met with NFL security officials on May 21 and gave them names of players he said bought steroids from him. *
