In response to RB David Wilson’s two fumbles against the Cowboys yesterday the Giants will be working out several running backs tomorrow including former Giant Brandon Jacobs. Jacobs helped the Giants win two Super Bowls and was very popular among Giants fans. Over eight seasons with the Giants he averaged one fumble per 60 carries and David Wilson is averaging one fumble per 28 carries. At 6’4″ 264 lbs he is a very large running back and is remarkably agile for an athlete of his size. The Giants have trouble scoring in the Red Zone and Jacobs’ size and power could be just what the Giants need to surge forward in Red Zone situations and to curb the turnovers.
The Giants will also be working out RB Willis McGahee.
