The Giants have released wide receiver David Tyree, one of their heroes from Super Bowl XLII.
Tyree’s agent Michael Clouser confirmed the move to Mike Garofalo of the Newark Star-Ledger.
“I talked to (assistant GM) Kevin Abrams this morning and he said it
was a very tough decision for the team,” Clouser said. “Like anyone else, it was a tough thing for David to hear. He’s
actually saying his goodbyes to his teammates right now.
“He’s obviously disappointed, but we’re confident someone else will
see the value he brings on special teams and as a wide receiver. We’ll
see how things go here in the next few days.”
The move was hardly unexpected as Tyree has battled a variety of injuries since pressing the ball to his helmet in the fourth quarter against the Patriots. He didn’t play at all in the preseason which left him behind six or seven other receivers vying for spots with the Giants.
