Antrel Rolle: Chris Snee “gave the team his all”

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.

  1. That is one heck of a nice thing for a teammate to do. That tribute to an offensive lineman from a safety is truly remarkable. Talk about the way comradery in a locker room should be….

  2. Rolle and Snee will both be in the Giants Ring of Honor one day, and way after the pass on their names will be forever linked to the New York Football Giants!

  3. anyone here ever worked for their fatherinlaw for 10 yrs?
    that in itself speaks volumes about chris snee.
    they better make a roster move at G.
    the 2 behind him on the depth chart arent gonna cut it for 16 games in the nfc east

  4. Snee has proven himself to be one of the best o-linemen in Giants history and can’t wait to see him put in the Giants Ring of Honor.

    On a side note, I remember when the Giants signed Antrel Rolle and everyone said the Giants overpaid and the guy wasn’t a team guy. I’d say the Giants got more than their money’s worth with Rolle’s play on the field. I’d also say that Rolle proved everyone wrong by becoming one of the leaders on the team and being a real glue guy.

    Go Giants!

  5. Snee will go down as one of the greatest offensive linemen in team history.He is very deserving to be in the ring of honor and Rolle discovered what it is to have a teammate who was a champion in every sense.I hope Mosely will win the job at right guard because he is better John Jerry.
