The Giants and right guard Chris Snee have agreed in principle to a six-year contract extension that will keep one of the NFL's best young linemen in blue through the 2014 season, according to someone familiar with the progress of negotiations. The person, who requested anonymity because the deal hasn't been signed and announced by the team, did not provide financial details but said Snee will now be among the top five highest-paid players at his position.

 

Snee, coach Tom Coughlin's son-in-law, was scheduled to be a free agent at the end of the coming season. The Giants second-round pick in 2004 (one round after the team selected QB Eli Manning, has started 59 of 64 regular-season games since winning a starting job in his rookie training camp.

 

More to come on this.

You mean he didn't jump up and down asking for a new contract when he still had 3 years left :ph34r:

 

Nevertheless... great news.

Nice!

 

Six more years of guaranteed third-and-short conversions! Remember how bad it used to suck to watch Ron Dayne get stuffed behind that crap O-line we had three years ago?

 

Thanks for ruining it <_<

Dayne couldnt get started with a saturn 5 booster strapped to his ass.

Now if only we can extend Anthony Wright's contract for 15 more years of guarenteed clipboard holding, that would make a good offseason.

 

Seems to be a trend, renogiated contracts with Diehl/Snee/Seubert, last year with O'Hara. All pretty much under the radar, yet you have this mess with Plax and Shockey. I guess the o-line is a real meat and potatoes group.

So we don't have to feed and dress Lorenzen anymore and all of a sudden we've got money for Snee... :o

 

Lorenzen refused to play his natural position on the offensive line, he had to go. This fat guy playing QB trick had to go.

 

Another one of Ernie's "projects" that didn't work out.

It's about time we got some good news. I was starting to get worried that he would opt in '09 and test the FA market. Getting Snee and Tuck locked up were huge.

As Plax has proven it means nothing, only that other teams can't bid on them.

This is a major reason why the Giants were a championship team. The unsung heroes on the offensive line, a cohesive unit thats been together, and will be together for several years. They really don't get enough credit.

 

I think any true Giants fan gives them credit, and gives the Front Office credit for realizing that while being a great offensive line player is one thing, continuity and teamwork is the most important ingredient to a successful offensive line. Pushing someone around is one thing. Pushing someone around and knowing what the guy next to you is doing is another. Football is such a mental game that even that little bit of doubt about the guy next to you, worrying he will screw up his job simply because you are not familiar with him, it takes away your concentration from your real job, focusing on the guy you are blocking.
