C.J. Mosley completely understands the significance of becoming part of a defense that has a long-standing reputation of greatness. Mosley, the 17th overall pick in the 2014 draft, will seek this summer to become a starting linebacker with the Baltimore Ravens. Athletes who have starred at the position for Baltimore include Ray Lewis, Peter Boulware, Terrell Suggs and Bart Scott - who once wore the No. 57 now utilized by Mosley. The Ravens won two Super Bowls by playing rugged defense, and now Mosley is being asked to adhere to that custom.

Nothing is more important to the New York Giants' championship chances than protecting Eli Manning. Nothing is more jumbled in the Giants' lineup as training camp opens than the offensive line. ''The Giants have a proud tradition on the offensive line,'' second-year right tackle Justin Pugh said Tuesday. At some point, though, coach Tom Coughlin and his staff must sort out who will be the starters and backups, and at which positions?

Giants open camp and Snee retires
(The Sports Xchange) - New York Giants offensive guard Chris Snee announced his retirement Monday after struggling to bounce back from hip and elbow injuries. Snee, a four-time Pro Bowler who helped the Giants win two Super Bowls, played in the NFL for 10 seasons. Snee, 32, hoped to recover from elbow surgery and two hip operations over the past two years in time to play an 11th season but was unable to participate in the Giants' minicamp in June. No doubt," coach Tom Coughlin, who is Snee's father-in-law, said in a statement on the team's website.
New York Giants offensive guard Chris Snee announced his retirement Monday after struggling to bounce back from hip and elbow injuries. Snee, who helped the Giants win two Super Bowls, was one of the most decorated members of the team's all-time offensive line. He played in the NFL for 10 seasons. No doubt," coach Tom Coughlin, who is Snee's father-in-law, said in a statement.
But for offensive lineman Chris Snee, playing for Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, who happens to be his father-in-law, was never an issue because he approached the game the only way he knew how: through hard work and a burning desire to out-muscle the man across from him. It was the realization for the 32-year-old Snee, who over the last two years has had issues with both hips and an elbow that his body would no longer allow him to play at the level he expected of himself. "It's kind of worked out the way that I'm sure both of us imagined," Snee said of his unique relationship with Coughlin. The four-time Pro Bowler, who at times struggled as he spoke about his decision, said he first told Coughlin about his final decision this past Saturday
New York Giants running back David Wilson has been cleared for contact work after recovering from neck surgery. Although he attended offseason workouts with the Giants, Wilson was held back from many activities by the team's medical staff until Monday, when the team reported for training camp. ''I got cleared this morning,'' Wilson said. ''That was the best news I'd gotten in a while.'' New York's first practice is Tuesday, and the Giants play on Aug. 3 in the Hall of Fame game against Buffalo.
