View Full Version : NY Giants release linebacker Antonio Pierce

After five seasons, a Super Bowl championship, a tumultuous 2008 season, an air horn in the locker room, a serious neck injury and plenty of other ups and downs as an outspoken defensive captain, Antonio Pierce's time with the Giants is over.

The team has released its middle linebacker, Pierce said in an e-mail Thursday afternoon.

Pierce, 32, had one season remaining on the contract he signed as a free agent in 2005. But a bulging disk suffered last season might have played into the Giants' decision to cut him now.

"I'm doing great, feeling great," Pierce wrote. "Looking forward to endless possibilities. Loved every moment as a NY GIANT."

The Giants will announce the transaction shortly.

I wanted to sign him, Rodgers or Vilma long ago. Vilma just got a ring.

I don't want him here. He is old and broken down.

I cannot imagine playing with a buldging disk, I have nerve damage and can't move around most days especially after lifting anything heavier than a milk jug.
