Long-snapper DeOssie returning for 13th season with Giants
EAST RUTHEFORD, N.J. (AP) — Long-snapper Zak DeOssie is returning for a 13th season with the New York Giants.
The team announced the re-signing of its second-longest tenured player Tuesday, a day after giving Eli Manning a $5 million roster bonus that almost guarantees the 38-year-old quarterback will be back for a 16th season.
They are the only two active Giants’ players from their Super Bowl wins over the Patriots after the 2007 and ’11 seasons.
The Giants also re-signed wide receiver Bennie Fowler and defensive back Tony Lippett.
DeOssie joined the Giants as a fourth-round draft choice in 2007 and has played in 188 regular-season games. He made the Pro Bowl twice.
Fowler played in 10 games last season, catching 16 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown. Lippett had one tackle in three games and was inactive for six.
