2. Tyrod Taylor, QB

Tyrod Taylor is currently in his second season with the Giants. He's made four starts in 10 appearances ahead of Week 18, leading the team to a 1-3 record while completing 62.8% of passing attempts for 1,044 yards, four TDs, and a pair of INTs. He's also turned 30 carries into 159 rushing yards, showing that he still has decent mobility at the age of 34.

So, why would the Giants walk away from one of the more prominent backup QBs in the league?

Well, New York doesn't have a real need for Taylor's services. Starting QB Daniel Jones is "expected to be the starter" when he returns from his ACL tear next season while undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito has shown that he's more than comfortable being the No. 2 sign-caller when needed.

Additionally, the Giants are projected to have a top-five selection at the 2024 NFL Draft. With the chance to draft someone like USC's Caleb Williams or UNC's Drake Maye, another quarterback may be in the mix with Jones and DeVito at training camp. It just doesn't look like there's room for Taylor in this equation.

Fortunately, Taylor has 91 games of experience across a 13-year career under his belt, meaning he likely won't have any issues landing another backup job next season. It just won't be with the Giants.
