Chris Snee believes the Giants should accessorize their usual offseason workout attire of T-shirts, shorts and sneakers.
“Name tags would be a nice addition,” Snee said.
Snee is preparing for his 10th season with the Giants, but found a very different team than the one he’s accustomed to when he reported today for the beginning of the offseason conditioning program. Longtime teammates like Justin Tuck, David Diehl, Kevin Boothe and Hakeem Nicks have moved on and the team signed 15 veteran free agents since mid-March. The program began with far more first-time introductions than in the past.
“It’s unprecedented, the percentage of change in this locker room,” said defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka, who is entering his ninth Giants season. “Those of us who are still here are excited for the start of a new season, but obviously it’s changed a lot. A lot of changes needed to be made, but whenever you’re a member of a team, it’s tough to see people go.”
“This is the most change I’ve been part of, for sure,” Snee said. “It’s going to take me a few weeks to learn all these guys’ names.”
