Reports: Ailing Chris Snee, Giants to meet on Monday

A mainstay on the Giants’ offensive line is reportedly set to meet with the club on Monday to weigh his future.

Right guard Chris Snee, a starter for the last 10 seasons, will huddle with the Giants tomorrow, Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports and Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported.

According to Vacchiano, “(r)etirement is an option” for Snee, a four-time Pro Bowler who’s started on a pair of Super Bowl-winning teams in New York.

The 32-year-old Snee has dealt with elbow and hip ailments and played just three games a season ago.

Via Garafolo, a poster on Giants-focused website BigBlueInteractive.com had indicated Snee was to retire on Monday, but Fox Sports and the Daily News report Snee hasn’t yet made a final call.

A Boston College product, Snee is the son-in-law of Giants head coach Tom Coughlin. He was a second-round selection of the Giants ten years ago.

John Jerry, Brandon Mosley and James Brewer are among the Giants’ potential other options at right guard.

    See? Date (and marry) the boss’s daughter and you bring all kinds of trouble!

    He just hasn’t been the same since Greg Schiano rushed the kneel-down in 2012.

    Solid career for Snee if he calls it quits. Seems like he’s been playing hurt for years.

    Snee was a Free Agent, so he must have taken a Physical.

    Who did the Physical? What were the results? What did the doctors say?

    The Giants are going to have to eat approximately 1Mil to release him. Questions need to be answered. To me, it sounds like special favors made to the Coach’s son in law.

    Retire now while you can still walk. He’s rich, played for one team and has rings. Retire!

    He’s Tom Coughlin’s son in law. He has more or less unfettered access to “Giants brass”.

  10. wave222 says: Jul 20, 2014 7:38 PM

    Thank you Chris!!

    A jet would never look for a way out like this because they already suck it would be pointless. :)

    If he retires it is as a two-time Super Bowl champ. Hope he has enough in the tank for one more season but if not best wishes for the guy.

    Chris Snee was a great player. He was one of the great leaders of the Giants back when they were good. He even blocked for the great Tiki Barber.

    Everyone knew he was retiring. It was just a matter of scheduling the announcement. I’m already resigned to the Giants not turning around until at least 2017.

  14. jackm79 says: Jul 20, 2014 7:55 PM

    He was not a free agent. He had 1year left on his deal. He restructured his contract saving the Giants almost $6,000,000 in cap space.

    Also, look for rookie 2nd round pick Weston Richburg to get a lot of reps in camp.
    It would be great if Mosley wins the job. He played well at the end of last season.

    To those of you claiming that he gets special treatment, Tom Coughlin doesn’t seem like much of a “special treatment” guy, son-in-law or not.

  16. johnnyjagfan says: Jul 20, 2014 8:31 PM

    Snee had to overcome locker room doubts because of not only the fact that he was Coughlin’s son in law, but also because he went to BC. He has played 10 seasons. That’s phenomenal and has to make Coughlin proud that he stuck his neck out for his son in law and won two Super Bowls. I hated seeing him get hurt to end his season last year.

    A Giant of a Giant. Do what’s best for you, Chris. You already gave us everything you have.

  18. jpherling says: Jul 20, 2014 8:39 PM

    Hopefully, they’ll let him retire gracefully.

  19. pftcoachmen says: Jul 20, 2014 8:49 PM

    Great player. Keep the rest of your health. If you need a job coaching, you have great contacts

  20. bobsnygiants says: Jul 20, 2014 8:54 PM

    I’ll keep him.

  21. cubano76 says: Jul 20, 2014 9:07 PM

    Can’t stand them on the field. But he sure was/is tough. And can be counted on for sure. Best of luck Mr. Snee. #HTTR

  22. berniemadoffsides says: Jul 20, 2014 9:11 PM

    Great career – he’s earned it.

  23. bassplucker says: Jul 20, 2014 9:16 PM

    Pretty sure this means he’s done.

  24. tuucamaron says: Jul 20, 2014 9:22 PM

    If he retires this was a great ride and thank you for protecting Eli through all this years

  25. blueballzny says: Jul 20, 2014 9:25 PM

    @richie078: Snee was NOT a free agent. This is the last year of his deal.

    Chris Sneed was one of the best guards in the game for a long time. That said, he hasn’t been that All-Pro player that Giants fans loved in 3-4 years. His body just couldn’t handle it anymore.

    Thank you Chris for everything you’ve done on and off the field as a NY Giant. A true leader and class act.

  26. floratiotime says: Jul 20, 2014 9:37 PM

    Translation … they’re not going to pay him for not playing any more. Even nepotism has limits.

  27. nysportsrule says: Jul 20, 2014 9:47 PM

    He announced his retirement.

  28. djstat says: Jul 20, 2014 11:21 PM

    Richie078 him retiring saves the giants money. Learn the cap

  29. richie078 says: Jul 21, 2014 12:08 PM

    Understood. For whatever reason, I was under the impression that he was a Free Agent resigning. I should have gathered the facts before firing off accusations.
