2. Jihad Ward, LB

Linebacker Jihad Ward has recently agreed to terms with the Minnesota Vikings after spending two years with the Giants.

The Vikings are Ward's sixth team in his eight-year career. In all those locations, the Illinois product has struggled to make a serious impact on the game.

He doesn't have the instincts needed to quickly react to a play while not bringing much as a pass-rusher.

He's never logged more than 5 sacks in a season and has a knack for getting moved in the run game.

In 2023, Ward finished with a measly 42.4 PFF grade.

1. Matt Peart, T

Offensive lineman Matt Peart was with the Giants for the past four years. He was drafted in the third-round pick of the 2020 NFL Draft and was selected due to his athleticism and superb length.

The Giants thought they could develop him into a quality swing tackle that turned into a starter but that never happened.

Peart has difficulty with play strength and hand usage as a blocker. Despite having the size needed to thrive, the UConn product gets beaten by both power and speed rushers.

Across four seasons, he's only started in seven games for the Giants and never established himself as an anchor upfront and that's saying something.

The G-Men were ravaged by injuries upfront in 2023 but Peart couldn't make an impact.

He now heads to the Denver Broncos on a one-year deal but things likely won't improve over there. Last year, he played in 133 offensive snaps and posted a PFF grade of 42.9.

Sean Payton and company are in for some trouble if he touches the field.
