2. K Graham Gano

Since joining the Giants prior to the 2020 season, Graham Gano has rejuvenated his NFL career. Over his first three seasons with the franchise, he was arguably their best player, continually racking up numbers that would put him among the best kickers in the league.

However, Gano’s age-36 season in 2023 did not go well, which was detrimental for a team that found themselves in some close games. He missed kicks that you wouldn’t normally even have to look up from your phone or tablet to see go through the uprights. Gano was that automatic before he got the yips last season. 

Now, some believe it could be due to him trying to play through an injury. That certainly seemed to be the case when he missed what would’ve been a game-winner against the New York Jets. Still, nothing’s guaranteed when you're Gano’s age, even if the Giants inked the kicker to an extension last season.

Kickers can be hard to come by in the NFL, especially reliable ones. If Gano is healthy in 2024, there’d be a bevy of teams lining up for his services. With his cap hit and the holes on the Giants roster, New York may be better suited finding some value on the market for Gano, and riding with a different kicker.
