Last year Shawn Andrews was on the same roster in Philadelphia as his brother, Stacy. But it’s this year with the Giants that Andrew says feels like being part of a family.
Andrews played his first game in a Giants uniform Saturday night against the Ravens, and he told Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger afterward that he felt like he was in the right place.
“It just felt good to run back out, even though I’m at my new home with the G-Men,” Andrews said. “I have to say it feels much more of a family atmosphere than what I’m used to in the past. Just starting with that in the locker room and then running out there, it’s an unbelievable feeling.”
Andrews had played his entire career with the Eagles before signing with the Giants this month, and he suggested that he’s more comfortable with his new team than he ever was in Philadelphia.
“It just feels like home,” Andrews said. “And I’m not just saying that to say the right thing. It really does. And I told the offensive line guys that. You can tell everybody is sincere and want to be here and work together. I can’t say it’s been like that my whole career.”
