Antrel Rolle: Giants' Chris Snee 'gave the team his all'

The New York Giants are dealing with the loss off right guard Chris Snee. After 10 seasons it is expected that Snee will announce his retirement today. The 32-year-old Snee has dealt with elbow and hip injuries in the last year.

Snee’s surgically repaired elbow forced him to be shut down during OTAs beginning the speculation about his health and whether he’d be able to continue. With two Super Bowl rings and four Pro Bowl nods Snee has nothing left to prove or acheive in football and made a decision for his health.

Giants safety Antrel Rolle took to Instagram to praise Snee ahead of his retirement. He admits that he begged Snee to stay one more season but he can respect his decision.

The caption reads: “This one hurts…… 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. This guy gave the team his all. I begged him to come back and give me one more year. He tried but I guess it’s time for him to leave the game. I can respect that. FIRST CLASS GUY ALL THE WAY AROUND. #offandonswitch #mybrother #nygfamilyforlifeFollow”
