5 Giants players we can safely call busts after the 2023 season

These five NY Giants were quite simply busts in 2023

3. CB Adoree' Jackson

Cornerback Adoree' Jackson, who is set to become a free agent when the new league year gets underway in March, had an overall nice few seasons for Big Blue when he signed a three-year contract back in 2021. But in 2023, he had a down year and the expectation is he won't be back in East Rutherford next fall.

Even though Jackson had his first career pick-six against the Philadelphia Eagles back in Week 16 on Christmas Day, he was pretty much a non-factor for the Giants on defense. The former USC Trojan did not cover well at the cornerback position, as he allowed an almost 70 percent completion rate. Those figures were so bad that Pro Football Focus gave him a grade of 48.6, which was the lowest of his career since coming to the NFL in 2017.

With the Giants now having a new defensive coordinator in Shane Bowen, it is unlikely the Giants will be bringing Jackson back and it should not be a surprise if they don't. Jackson quite simply had a down year for Big Blue and the team will look to a future without him.
