Hello Giants fans, let me ask you a question. What is wrong with WR David Tyree? Besides owning the greatest play in Super Bowl history, many might have forgotten that David Tyree was a pro bowl player at one time. Not only that but he went to the pro bowl based upon his special teams performance. The guy is not over the hill having just 7 NFL seasons under his belt and can be an electrifying game changer at the strangest moments (see SB XLII). He is 30 years old, 6’0″ 206 pounds and has won on the biggest stage in the world.
There must be something wrong with him physically for the team not to be grabbing him for a one or two year deal. There are no illusions here, he would serve as a backup WR and a special teams leader. I’m not sure if he can run as fast as he did in 2005, when he went to the pro bowl but he is certainly worth taking a look at. Invite him to training camp at the very least. The New Jersey native and former 6th round pick (2003) knows the local area and knows the G-Men very well.
I would like our readers to participate in this article and tell me what you think. Our previous article listed some possible free agent acquisitions. I find it difficult to believe that WR Chris Brown, offered Big Blue more then what David Tyree can offer. Give the man a chance to fail his own physical I say. He is a fan favorite and it shows that you gave him the respect of a physical and training camp invite. I would love to know once and for all what the main reason is for David Tyree not getting a shot at making the team. Could this be over something personal? Sure it can be but I doubt it. It has to be something regarding Tyree’s physical condition (most likely his knee).
We all know that he was hanging around the locker room earlier this year and it seemed like he had the itch to play. I know one thing for certain, if he were to come back to the Giants, the fans would welcome him with open arms.
Would you take a chance on signing former New York Giants WR David Tyree for the 2010 NFL season?

Tyree has retired my man. He has not issued an official statement, but he plans on signing a one day deal with The Giants and hanging it up. Since missing all of 08 with injury his heart has not been in the game. He is more focused on building his already successful ministry and just being with his kids.
Well, I’m sorry to hear that. I’ve always liked Tyree. You never really hear of anything official until the question is raised. I’m sure you have a good source telling you this. I’m also glad he will retire a Giant.
Hopefully, they will take a look into some of the other free agents I listed in the previous article.
PS – was it just his heart or was his knee a factor in his choice to retire?
Mostly his heart.
I’m sorry to hear that but I wish him well. He’s a good guy.
It isnt a bad thing really, his heart is just leading him elsewhere. He has young kids, a great ministry, and thats where his focus is at. He just realized that football isn’t everything
That’s true I guess. There is nothing wrong with being happy.
