As the New York Giants enter a pivotal 2024, there’s a myriad of players who may be playing for their future with the franchise throughout the upcoming campaign. You’re never guaranteed anything in the NFL, and that rings true for the status of many of New York’s players in 2024 and beyond.

Still, there’s an opportunity for some to showcase their talent, and remain with Big Blue for the foreseeable future if they’re able to take advantage of the opportunities presented to them. Regardless, it’ll all come down to how the team performs throughout 2024, and the contributions made by each individual on the chopping block. Ahead of what should be a whirlwind couple of months for the franchise, here are five Giants players who must prove they can’t be replaced after this season:

5. QB Daniel Jones

The easiest Giants player to point to and wonder if they’ll be with the franchise beyond 2024 also plays the most important position in all of sports, and that’s the team’s quarterback in Daniel Jones. It seems as if Jones has been fighting an uphill battle ever since he arrived in New York.  

Of course, he was drafted No. 6 overall, so the weight of great expectations were already placed on him, but whether it was Dave Gettleman’s roster construction, Joe Judge’s coaching or a shoddy offensive line, one thing or another has derailed his time in East Rutherford.

While 2022 under Brian Daboll was incredible for Jones, last season’s performance ruined all of the goodwill he built with fans and media members alike. Now, returning from a litany of injuries, the odds may be stacked against him, but it’s nothing Jones hasn’t already dealt with throughout his time in the NFL.

The Giants have an out in his contract after this season, and there’s a likelihood that they’ll use it if Jones plays like he did last fall. Everything is on the line for the quarterback in 2024, and if he doesn’t improve his game, he won’t be in New York come 2025.
