With the 2024 season right around the corner, the NY Giants need to do all they can in order to avoid another letdown. In order for this to happen, certain players are going to have to surpass their expectations, if not, things could get dark.

For certain guys, though, this season could be their last chance to prove they can be impact players for the Giants. They've had their ups and downs throughout their career in Big Blue, but have failed to find any consistency. With expiring contracts or cap flexibility to get cut, these four Giants have to play their best in 2024 if they wish to stay in New York for 2025.

4. P Jamie Gillan

While last season Jamie Gillan had his moments, it was his first successful season out of five and with an expiring contract. Joe Schoen could be primed to move on if he underperforms next season - when he struggled in 2023, fans were not happy.

Gillan's talent is evident, as he has one of the best legs in the NFL. However, the start of his NFL career has brought much inconsistency. In 2023, Gillan showcased that inconsistency once again, which had some people calling for him to get cut.

Last season, Gillan landed 41 of his 95 punts within the 20 yard line and had a career-long 74 yard punt in Week 12 against the Patriots. In addition to this, Gillan also had the third most yards punted and kicks within the 20 yard line, and had the sixth-longest punt in the NFL. The potential is there for him to be great.

If Gillan can put everything together in '24, he will likely earn a decent extension at the end of the 2025 season. If not, it's probably wraps for the Scottish Hammer's time in New York. What will happen? We'll find out soon.
