Chris Snee Reportedly Set to Announce Retirement

Chris Snee Reportedly Set to Announce Retirement

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Chris Snee is reportedly ready to hang up his cleats and shoulder pads. A source close to the New York Giants lineman says he has scheduled a meeting for Monday morning with team officials to tell them he’s considering retiring.
While his final decision is not 100% made, the 32-year-old would not be able to start the season on time anyway thanks to a longer than expected recovery from elbow surgery in November.
After missing the team’s minicamp in June because of the extended rehab, New York and Snee each began weighing their options. The Giants gave the majority of reps to third-year player Brandon Mosley while also letting their second-round pick, Weston Richburg, see some time.
Snee, a four-time Pro Bowler, could be entering his 11th season as an offensive lineman for the Giants.
Snee played just three games in 2013 and was placed on injured reserve on October 4 due to an ailing hip injury. The 2004 draft pick out of Boston College helped the Giants to two Super Bowls in his 10-year career. He is also the son-in-law of Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.

Giants’ Jon Beason Fractures Foot, May Miss Season Opener

Giants’ Jon Beason Fractures Foot, May Miss Season Opener

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The New York Giants defensive players continue to drop like flies. This time linebacker Jon Beason injured his right foot during OTAs, suffering a ligament tear and a small fracture.
Beason will be further inspected by foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Unfortunately for Beason and the Giants, his status for the team’s season-opener Sept. 8 against Detroit Lions is up in the air.
“The prognosis is ‘X’ amount of time and [the Sept. 8 opener] is within that time frame,” Beason said in a statement. “I expect to be back [for that game]. If not, I’ll be back as soon as I can. That’s really how you have to look at it. If it’s not 16 [games played], maybe it’s 15 or 14. Whatever it is, you want it to be that number as opposed to one.”
After struggling with injuries with the Carolina Panthers, the Giants traded for the former Pro Bowler. He then played like his old self, making 93 tackles for the club in 12 games.
The Giants resigned Beason to a three-year deal worth $16.8 million earlier in the offseason.

Giants Safety Will Hill Suspended 6 Games by the NFL

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — New York Giants safety Will Hill has been suspended for the first six games of the 2014 season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
Hill tried to appeal the decision, but was ultimately denied. The NFL could have suspended him for the entire season, so he is fortunate that his suspension was merely six games.
This is Hill’s third suspension by the NFL. In October 2012, Hill was suspended by the league for testing positive for a performance enhancing subject which was later revealed as adderall.
The third came back in 2013 when Hill was suspended four games for violating the substance-abuse policy. He admitted the positive test was for marijuana.
Despite his immense talent, Hill has had trouble staying on the field during his brief NFL career.
In 12 games for the Giants last season, Hill recorded 77 tackles along with two interceptions.
Other than the initial announcement, the Giants declined further comment on the situation.

Giants Release Quarterback Josh Freeman

Giants Release Quarterback Josh Freeman

Marc Serota/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Josh Freeman era is already over in New York as the Giants have cut the quarterback just six weeks after signing him as a backup to starter Eli Manning.
With Manning back practicing at OTA’s the team now has three healthy quarterbacks in he, Curtis Painter, and Ryan Nassib.
Not too long ago, Freeman was considered one of the up-and-coming stars in the NFL after he was selected in the first-round of the 2009 Draft out of Kansas State by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Last season, he feuded with head coach Greg Schiano before he was ultimately released mid-season. He wound up signing with the Minnesota Vikings, but started just one game for the team, which happen to come against the Giants.
Freeman’s lack of ability to learn the Vikings offense did him in with Minnesota, and reportedly, Freeman had trouble picking up the Giants offense as well.
 Still just 26-years-old, Freeman has thrown 80 touchdowns during his career, but has also thrown 67 interceptions.
