The quarterbacks room for the NY Giants is expected to look quite different next season. Regardless of if general manager Joe Schoen uses the No. 6 overall pick on a new signal-caller or not, a new face or two will be on his way to East Rutherford.

Tyrod Taylor is expected to chase bigger money in free agency, while Tommy DeVito understands that his future with the team is unknown. Having said all that, two veteran QB options are now available once free agency rolls around, but come on, Schoen can't even think about touching either of these guys with a 10-foot pole. We're talking about Mitch Trubisky and AJ McCarron, who were just released by the Steelers and Bengals, respectively.

The Giants must avoid Mitchell Trubisky in free agency at all costs

No disrespect to Trubisky or McCarron, but if they see extensive action next season, then it'll surely be only because a major injury was suffered for a team's starting QB. Already, Giants Nation is praying to the Football Gods that Daniel Jones can stay healthy from start to finish next season.

Jones was only able to play in six games due to a neck injury and his torn ACL in '23. This came after he put the pen to paper on his four-year extension worth $160 million. A lot of Big Blue supporters want Schoen to bring in a new QB in the first round, but there's speculation that he could look to free agency to bring in a veteran instead.

If that's the case, then Trubisky or McCarron won't be the answer. Perhaps Gardnew Minshew, Jacoby Brissett or maybe even Joshua Dobbs would be a solid QB2 option instead. Who knows, maybe Schoen looks to the later rounds of the draft to go after a developmental QB.

Hey, even bringing back DeVito would be a better option than either McCarron/Trubisky. This is a MASSIVE offseason for Schoen and Brian Daboll, as the 6-11 campaign in 2023 has infuriated way too many people. Splashes at certain positions need to be made, especially at QB. That's why staying away from these two has to be a no-brainer for the front office.
