1. QB Daniel Jones

Many complained about the hefty contract extension Daniel Jones signed this offseason and one year into this new deal, their complaints may have been correct. Not only did Jones play poorly in 2023, but he also tore his ACL against the Raiders in Week 9, effectively ending his season in the most depressing way possible.

Jones had a cap hit of around $15 million this season, but now, going into 2024 fresh off a torn ACL, the veteran is set to have a hit of $47 million, which is just absurd. Maybe Jones can turn things around and come close to being worth this much, but the odds of that happening at this point are slim to none.

In the six games we saw out of Jones this season, he completed 67.5 percent of his passes for 909 yards, two touchdowns, and six interceptions while fumbling the ball four times. Almost any progression he made the season prior disappeared in 2023 and Jones looked like a shell of his former self.

With Schoen and the Giants potentially going all-in on drafting a QB this offseason, it's going to be interesting to see whether or not Jones even starts in 2024. If he doesn't, that massive cap hit will look even worse than it already does.
