9:47pm: Several team sources expect Snee to make his retirement official tomorrow, writes Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News. A source tells Vacchiano that a final decision has yet to be made, but Dan Graziano of ESPN.com hears that he’ll retire.
5:30pm: Giants guard Chris Snee will meet with the Giants’ staff tomorrow, and retirement is a possibility, tweets Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports 1. Some reports had indicated the Snee was definitely going to hang up his cleats, but apparently his consultation with team brass will help him make his decision.
Snee has been dealing with complications to his surgically-repaired elbow, which caused him to miss spring practices. According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Post (on Twitter), Snee’s elbow is “not good.” After undergoing hip surgery last year, he was only able to play in three games, so perhaps the continuously mounting injuries have caught up with Snee.
Snee, 32, was a second-round pick in 2004, and has spent his entire career in New York. He has started a total of 141 games over his 10-year career. If he opts to retire, the Giants would likely to turn to either veteran John Jerry (who is also injured) or 2012 fourth-rounder Brandon Mosley to man right guard.
