The New York Giants, like a lot of other teams this week, will get their training camp underway as they prepare for the 2014 season. However, they may be going the rest of the way without one of their key members of the offensive line, guard Chris Snee, as he will meet with the team on Monday to discuss his future, which includes possible retirement.
Chris Snee will meet w/team officials tomorrow to discuss his future. His elbow is not good. Retirement is an option. No final decision yet.

Snee, the son-in-law of head coach Tom Coughlin, had his elbow surgically repaired this offseason, and the recovery has not gone anywhere near the way he nor the team would have liked. The slow recovery process held him out of the recent OTAs the Giants held, which was the first sign that things were not going according to plan.
While some may think that a slow recovery from elbow surgery might not be reason enough for a 32-year-old NFL veteran with two Super Bowl rings to hang the cleats up, he has also undergone back-to-back hip surgeries in the past as well.
Should he decide on retiring, it should be a rather quick decision. If they decide in the meeting on Monday that it is best for him to hang ‘em up, then an announcement should come shortly after that, before camp begins.
