Giants right guard Chris Snee is reportedly set to step away from the game after 10 seasons. If indeed this is it for Snee, he will retire with two Super Bowl rings and four Pro Bowl nods — a full career indeed.
He’ll also leave with a nice tribute from Giants safety Antrel Rolle, who took to Instagram Monday to praise Snee’s contributions to the club.
“U always have guys that come to fight with you on the gridiron but very rarely do u find a guy who FIGHTS 100% of the time no matter how he feels,” Rolle wrote. “This guy gave the team his all.”
The 32-year-old Snee has dealt with elbow and hip injuries in the last year. Rolle said he “begged” Snee to return for another season but that he understands the lineman’s decision.
“I can respect that,” Rolle wrote.
Rolle worked with Snee for more than four years. Though they played on opposite sides of the ball, it’s clear that Snee’s commitment and approach made an impact on Rolle.
