Giants G Chris Snee Retiring Monday

 

Update:

Ian Rapoport confirms that Giants G Chris Snee will announce his retirement after meeting with the Giants Monday.

Snee’s agency posted a tweet earlier in the day that eluded to him calling it a career.

“I am proud of where I am today,” Snee said. “To come from a small town in Pennsylvania (Montrose) where nobody thought (he’d be an NFL player). When I said I wanted to play pro football at a young age, I was serious. And then when I played high school ball, I said, ‘I want to be the first guy from my high school to go to a Division 1 college,’ and I was able to do that. Along every step there were doubters, I’m sure that’s the case with everyone, I’m not trying to make my situation unique. I’ve always been a guy, I like to prove people wrong. I just always have been a guy who has had high goals for myself and really never satisfied until I get them. I’m extremely proud, but also extremely sad.

“It’s going to be weird,” Snee said of no longer playing. “I bought season tickets a couple years ago. I don’t think I’ll be ready to sit in those seats just yet – but yeah, I’ll be here. I still have some older friends remaining on the team and some of the young guys I’ve gotten to know. I’ll be rooting for them.”

Snee, 32, was a second-round draft pick of the Giants back in 2004. He spent his entire ten-year career with the team and was a four-time Pro Bowler who helped them win two Super Bowls.

Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports that Giants veteran G Chris Snee will in fact announce his retirement on Monday.

  • Ralph Vacciano of the New York Daily News first reported that Snee was set to meet with team officials Monday to discuss his future with the team.
  • According to Vacciano Snee’s surgically repaired elbow is “not good.

The Giants restructured Snee’s contract several months, which included a pay cut from $7.2 million to $1.1 million for the 2014 season.

Ourlads.com currently has John Jerry and Brandon Mosley behind Snee on their the depth chart, so they figure to battle for the job in training camp.
