Besides trying out and agreeing to terms with running back Brandon Jacobs following an audition that included running backs Willis McGahee and George Winn, the New York Giants worked out a trio of linebackers, according to a league source.

The Giants also worked out former Buffalo Bills first-round linebacker Aaron Maybin, who last played for the Cincinnati Bengals, and also has played for the New York Jets.

The Giants also worked out former Baltimore Ravens third-round linebacker Tavares Gooden, who has also played for the San Francisco 49ers, and former Cleveland Browns sixth-round linebacker Emmanuel Acho.
