As we discuss the 2016 New York Giants we keep coming back to the issue of cornerback depth. Let's look today at Tramain Jacobs, one of the players competing for an opportunity to provide that depth, as we continue profiling the 90 players who will report to training camp for the Giants later this summer.

2015 Season in Review

Jacobs appeared in three games for the Baltimore Ravens in 2014 as an undrafted free agent.  The Giants picked him up after the Ravens cut him at the end of the 2015 preseason. He was back-and-forth between the Giants' practice squad and active roster, appearing in five games. Jacobs was used exclusively on special teams, playing zero snaps on defense.

2016 Season Outlook

The 24-year-old is part of a group of players competing for reserve cornerback roles with the Giants. Jacobs can also be used as a gunner on punt coverage, so that works to his advantage. If he sticks with the Giants, Jacobs might be able to grab a reserve role, but he doesn't figure prominently in the Giants' plans.
