One of the most important pieces of the New York Giants offensive line will be returning to the team after taking a bit of a financial as Adam Schefter is reporting that Chris Snee has restructured his current contract to return to the Big Apple.
Giants G Chris Snee restructured his contract, lowering his salary from $7.2 million to $1.1 million + $1M of incentives. So $2.1 max cash.

Snee, the son-in-law of head coach Tom Coughlin, has been a crucial part of the Giants’ big men up front since he was drafted out of Boston College prior to the 2004 season.
He was pivotal in helping the team win two world championships over the New England Patriots, and as was seen last year with the team’s struggles, they could use all the veterans on this team that’s possible while they try to rebound from the lackluster 2013 campaign.
After this move, the team will now more than likely negotiate with their free agent wide receivers, in particular Hakeem Nicks who has said he’s willing to return on a one-year deal.
