With the start of free agency three weeks away, the New York Giants addressed one of their pending unrestricted free agents ahead of time, re-signing long-snapper Zak DeOssie.
DeOssie, selected in the fourth round of the 2007 draft, joins quarterback Eli Manning as the only two remaining players to have taken part on the franchise’s last two Super Bowl championships (in 2007 and 2011)
DeOssie, who in 2015 saw his string of 149 consecutive regular-season and postseason games in nine seasons end on Dec. 8 due to a torn ligament in his wrist that required season-ending surgery.
The 31-year-old DeOssie is a two-time Pro Bowl long snapper (2008 and 2010) and has been the team’s special teams captain each of the last five seasons. He has 71 career regular-season special teams tackles, plus seven in the postseason.
Terms of the contract were not immediately available.
