If NY Giants general managerJoe Schoen is trying to bring back a winning mentality to this team, then this decision is one that is going to pay off. No one in East Rutherford has forgotten about former offensive lineman Chris Snee - the man was a fan favorite.

While with the G-Men, Snee won two Super Bowls and he was a dominant lineman for the Big Blue offense. Now, Snee is ready to come home. According to the New York Post's Paul Schwartz, Snee has been hired by Joe Schoen and NY as a team scout.

The NY Giants have hired Chris Snee as a new team scout

A Giants Ring of Honor member, Snee spent all 10 years of his NFL career with Big Blue. He earned four Pro Bowl honors and was a First Team All-Pro in 2008. He'll go down as one of the best offensive guards ever for the Giants and he has the two Super Bowl titles to back that up.

After he retired in 2013, Snee has since served as a scout for the Jaguars and most recently he was an analyst for Boston College, his alma mater. According to Schwartz, Schoen nearly brought Snee to town in 2022 as a scout, but the two sides weren't able to come to an agreement.

That's not the case now, though, as Snee is all set to be with the organization for the 2024 campaign. This is a massive year for Schoen and Co., especially after the Giants went 6-11 last season. There's plenty of excitement surrounding the organization following the NFL Draft, however, with people still hyped about Malik Nabers being selected No. 6 overall.

Now, Big Blue supporters are smiling wide knowing that Snee, an NY legend, will also be ready to assist this team in any way he can. He made 141 starts for the Giants and while we'd love to see him help out the offensive line on Sundays in '24, knowing he'll be by Schoen's side to help identify talent is a win on its own. This feels like a great hire by Schoen and the front office.
