Chris Snee’s career is reportedly at a close.

The Giants’ 11th-year right guard is expected to announce his retirement on Monday, Dan Graziano of reported.

Snee, 32, has made 141 starts for the Giants since joining the club in 2004. He was a Pro Bowl starter in 2012, but hip and elbow injuries ended his 2013 campaign after just three starts, and his health reportedly looms an issue now as the Giants prepare to report to training camp on Monday.

A report indicating Snee would be retiring surfaced on Sunday on, and various published reports since have only added to the sentiment that Snee’s long and productive stint in New York could be at an end.

Snee’s impending departure leaves wide receiver Victor Cruz, quarterback Eli Manning and fullback Henry Hynoski as the only offensive starters from the Giants’ Super Bowl XLVI-winning squad still with the club.

UPDATE 11:06 p.m. ET:  A league source tells PFT that it’s a 100-percent certainty that Snee will retire.

    Tough SOB who played on two Super Bowl winning teams and was part of an OL that paved the way for two 1,000 yard rushers in one season. Lunch pail guy every successful team needs. Enjoy your retirement sir, you deserve it.

    The 49ers are unquestionably the best, most consistent team in The National Football League.

    Great career, great Giant.

    Not surprising. We knew he would be discussing it at the very least tomorrow, and would announce it by midweek, so this falls in line with that belief.

    Just Eli, Vic, and Hynocerous… that’s some turnover… and of the XLVI defensive starters, only JPP and Antrel are left.

    Consistent at falling short and choking for 20 straight years, yes.

    Get healthy and enjoy some fishing.

    Best of luck to a great Giant. Thanks for the memories Chris.

    Such a great career. Best of luck to him.

  11. hakunamangata says: Jul 20, 2014 11:21 PM

    Great job and one of the more under appreciated players on two Super Bowl championship teams.

    Sad to see him leave because of injury but glad he had 11 strong years.

    Enjoy retirement you earned it!

    Walk out with your head held high.
    Well done.
    Well done.

    Which Super Bowl was that? The first one against the 18-0 Patriots or the second one? God, I hate those stupid Roman Numerals.

  14. canetic says: Jul 21, 2014 12:09 AM

    Get out while you still have some health left. You’ve got nothing to prove, Mr. Pro Bowler and two-time SB Champion.

  15. bcgreg says: Jul 21, 2014 12:09 AM

    Look at my screen name.

    Although I’m a Pats fan, I root for my BC brethren.

    My favorite Giant along with Kiwi, Andre Williams, and the coach of course!

    Heckuva player…Cowboys fan here acknowledging the truth.

    Good, he sucked!

    a great lineman for many years. as a Redskins fan may I just say I’m glad you’re gone.

    Great career. Enjoy retirement.

  21. pnut87 says: Jul 21, 2014 2:01 AM

    McKenzie, Diehl, O’Hara, Seubert, Snee. One of the best sets of OLs I’ve had the pleasure to watch. Snee is the last to leave. Enjoy your retirement, I hope you get the credit you deserve.

  22. garyridgway says: Jul 21, 2014 2:28 AM

    Wow 3 players left from 3 years ago on offense. That number just speaks to the age of free agency and how much harder it is to be consistent in modern day football.

  23. duncanthecat says: Jul 21, 2014 5:16 AM

    If I recall, many questioned the pick. Not anymore. Two Super Bowl rings and a great career–no one does now.

    Best going forward.

  24. richkotitte says: Jul 21, 2014 6:17 AM

    All the best to you Chris! You were a true Giant and we appreciate your great effort, playing in pain, and being a model citizen off the field!

  25. politicallyincorrect says: Jul 21, 2014 7:47 AM

    I was wondering if he or his father in law retired first…

    Congrats Chris, good life….

    Nepotism has limits it seems. The guy retired 2 years ago. Then basically went on welfare till they threw him out.

  28. ncphinsfan says: Jul 21, 2014 9:25 AM

    Congrats to Snee. Nice Career. Unfortunately, the GMen are going to rely on John Jerry to replace him. Good Luck with that!

  29. themage78 says: Jul 21, 2014 10:14 AM

    Hope he starts to coach for the Giants. He’d probably be pretty good at it.

    Always amazed at some of the jerks that show up here. This Packer fan appreciated his ability and hard nosed style. Some of you could use some class lessons from him

    The Jaguars don’t have the skill to be a pro football team.

    Mario Manningham was maybe deserves an asterisk. Isn’t “still there” because he left but was on the last super bowl winner
