New York Giants Named Worst 2024 Destination For NFL Players

The New York Giants are actually sort of a wild card heading into the 2024 NFL season.

They certainly weren’t great last year, going 6-11, but they do have some intriguing talent—particularly on the defensive side of the ball—and, on paper, look considerably better than they did in 2023.

However, Bleacher Report’s Alex Ballentine apparently does not think too much of the Giants with training camp just around the corner.

In a piece where Ballentine listed off his least desirable destinations in the league, he had New York ranked No. 1—meaning the worst possible spot to land.

Ballentine cites the uncertainty surrounding the coaching staff as a big reason why. Brian Daboll could very well be on the hot seat, and Big Blue has brought in a new defensive coordinator in Shane Bowen.

He also notes that the Giants don’t exactly have the greatest financial situation, specifying the massive cap hits of Dexter Lawrence, Brian Burns and Andrew Thomas plus the fact that Daniel Jones is slated to earn $41.6 million in 2024.

But is New York really the worst landing spot for NFL players? Seems like a bit of an exaggeration.

The Giants could be a pesky team in 2024

Let’s not forget that just two seasons ago, the Giants went 9-7-1 and upset the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.

That was what prompted New York to hand Jones a four-year, $160 million contract that ensuing offseason, one that the G-Men almost surely regret at this point.

Jones played in just six games last year before tearing his ACL, totaling two passing touchdowns and six interceptions during his time on the field.

That being said, Jones played some pretty good football in 2022, and it should be noted that the Duke product has never had a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver at his disposal since entering the league in 2019.

Until now.

The Giants selected Malik Nabers with the sixth overall pick of the NFL Draft back in April, and reports out of camp say that Nabers has looked Odell Beckham-like.

Perhaps Jones will finally emerge as a consistent producer under center now that he has Nabers in his stable of receivers, not to mention an improved offensive line.

We’ll see if the Giants can rebound come September.
