The Giants lost last year’s starting tight end to the Raiders this week.

On Saturday night, they lost another tight end to retirement. The team announced Saturday night that recent free agent pickup Ben Patrick decided he no longer wants to play football.  He was placed on the reserve/retired list.

Patrick was signed last week. He wasn’t expected to be a huge contributor, but he was very likely to make the team at a thin position.  The Giants will have to go back to the drawing board.

Yeah, it was a rough night for the Giants.
