He is also the team's all-time leader in receptions (668) and receiving touchdowns (54). In 2007, Toomer helped the Giants to victory in Super Bowl XLII.

McDonald is currently the defensive backs coach for the Bills.

5. Chris Snee, Giants
Snee was drafted No. 34 overall by the Giants in 2004 and went on to start 141 games in New York. He was named to the Pro Bowl four times and was a first-team All-Pro once, in 2008.
