One of the NFL’s powerhouse teams, the New York Giants have had its fair share of top players over the years. Some of the team’s greatest players of all time include:

Harry Carson. A linebacker with the Giants for 13 years, Carson is often recognized for his leadership. He has been named to the All-NFC and All-Pro Teams eight and seven times, respectively, and twice was recognized as the NFC Linebacker of the Year. Additionally, Carson was the Giants’ team captain for 10 seasons.

Eli Manning. Having led the Giants to recognition as a 10-6 NFC Wild Card in 2007 and a 9-7 NFC Wild Card in 2011, Manning has made a name for himself and for the Giants over the years. He has won two MVP awards and helped the team win Super Bowls XLII and XLVI against the New England Patriots.

Lawrence Taylor. A two-time Super Bowl champion and 10-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro, Taylor was an accomplished outside linebacker for the Giants. He was Defensive Player of the Year three times and recorded two career-highs: 133 tackles during his rookie year and 20.5 sacks in 1986.
