3. DB Adoree' Jackson

In previous seasons, Adoree' Jackson was arguably a Pro Bowl-level corner. This season, though, things were rough for the veteran, and with his $19 million cap hit, it's very clear that Jackson wasn't worth what he was being paid and it cost the Giants more than just money.

Had Jackson played like he did last season, we'd look at his cap hit with much more optimism, but instead, the 28-year-old DB posted one of his worst campaigns yet. Through 14 games, Jackson allowed 54 receptions on 82 targets for 753 yards and two touchdowns. This season saw Jackson allow the most receptions and yards since 2018, his second year in the league.

With Jackson taking a clear step back in 2023, it's very difficult to envision a world in which Joe Schoen opts to re-sign the veteran. His services were once very valuable, but his level of play has declined and the fact that he's yet to play a full season in three years with Big Blue makes it clear to see he will be playing elsewhere in 2024.
