Coming off an injury riddled 2013, Chris Snee has some options to consider. Snee has seen his health deteriorate in recent years with operations on both of his hips, and now this elbow injury that kept him out of 13 games last season.
Snee missed all of minicamp in June, and apparently, the pain in that surgically repaired elbow has not subsided like Snee and the Giants thought it would.
FOX Sports’ Mike Garafalo reported that Snee will be meeting with the Giants on Monday — before the physical tests — to talk about his future with the team and the possibility of retirement:
Saw @BigBlueInteract rumor Giants G Chris Snee to retire. Not yet. He meets w/ team brass tomorrow to discuss whether his body can make it.

Obviously, this is huge news coming out of Giants camp. Snee has been a rock in the foundation of this Giants offensive line for the better part of a decade, including two Super Bowl victories. Jumping off of a previous article written by our very own William Watts, the Giants have a few options at right Guard just in case Snee does retire.
Right now it seems that Brandon Mosley is the favorite to take the spot, but they have also been working rookie year center Weston Richburg at guard as well. The Giants signed a few offensive linemen this off season including the ex-Dolphin John Jerry who was in the news for his involvement in the Richie Incognito bullying scandal. However, he had a knee procedure done and may not be ready for the start of camp.

Looks at though the decision has been made. If it is official, it’s a sad day in Giants land. More to come tomorrow…
