There's no dancing around: the 2023 NFL season was extremely underwhelming for New York Giants fans. After making the 2022-23 playoff in a season where Brian Daboll was named NFL Coach of the Year, the Giants head into Week 18 with a 5-11 record and will miss the postseason for the 10th time in the last 12 years.

After this debacle of a campaign, general manager Joe Schoen must do everything he can to turn the ship around this offseason. That means making tough decisions about trimming the fat when it comes to players who don't do much in terms of producing on-field results.

With that in mind, here are five Giants who are likely playing their last game with the team on Sunday.

5 Giants Playing Last Game in Week 18

1. Parris Campbell, WR

No matter how you slice it, Parris Campbell failed to meet expectations this season.

A former 2019 second-round pick by the Indianapolis Colts, Campbell was brought in on a one-year, $5 million contract over the offseason to help improve the Giants' wideout situation. After all, they finished the 2022 campaign with the seventh-fewest passing yards.

Unfortunately, Campbell hasn't done his part to improve New York's passing game. Despite playing the second-most games in his career (12), the 26-year-old wideout has caught 20 passes for just 104 receiving yards without a touchdown. He only commands a 49.0 passer rating when targeted and averages a putrid 3.3 yards after the catch per reception.

But as bad as Campbell's campaign was, the silver lining is that the Giants can have a painless divorce due to his status as an upcoming free agent. While he could bounce back next year, Schoen must let him be another team's headache.
