Giants RG Chris Snee agreed to a pay cut, lowering his salary from $7.2 million to $2 million.

Snee, 32, can earn another $550,000 in bonuses. The move was fully expected, as Snee was scheduled to count a whopping $11.75 million against the 2014 salary cap in the final year of his contract. He's an asset when healthy.
Mar 10 - 6:49 PM

Giants RG Chris Snee said he's open to taking a pay cut.

"That's my job," Snee said. "I never complained about money. I'll do what I have to for the team to get better." Snee, coach Tom Coughlin's son-in-law, carries an $11.75 million cap number and will need to slash that considerably. It'll get worked out. Snee said his hip is doing well, and his elbow is still recovering. The 32-year-old did say he may need a hip replacement down the road.

Chris Snee said if the Giants don't want him in 2014, he'd "probably" retire.

Snee, who carries an $11.75 million cap number, is well aware that he'll have to take a massive pay cut to return. "I've had discussions with Jerry [Reese] and there's interest on both sides," he said. "I'm not worried about if the deal will get done but when." Snee, a 32-year-old four-time Pro Bowler, appeared in just three games last season due to a hip injury. If healthy, he's an asset the Giants' muddled offensive line desperately needs.

ESPN New York reports "there is a chance" Giants RG Chris Snee retires.

Snee, 32, is coming off October hip surgery and an elbow operation. He just wrapped up his tenth season and may not want to go through another grueling rehab and training camp. However, those close to Snee say he feels good and has yet to decide his future. Snee is a lock to be released by the Giants due to an enormous $11.75 million cap hit but could return on a one-year deal.
Jan 22 - 2:52 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger considers Giants RG Chris Snee a lock to be released.

Snee, 32 on Saturday, is set to count a gargantuan $11.75 million against the 2014 salary cap. There's absolutely no way he's coming back at that rate. The G-Men will save $7.25 million against the cap by cutting Snee. He underwent hip and elbow surgery this past season after going on I.R. in early October. The Giants need to overhaul their offensive line this offseason.
Jan 16 - 3:22 PM

Giants RG Chris Snee (injured reserve) will undergo elbow surgery Monday.

Snee was placed on injured reserve on October 4 and underwent hip surgery. He's getting the elbow cleaned out while he has "nothing else to do."

Giants placed RG Chris Snee (hip surgery) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Snee was a highly effective player up until this season, when his body simply seemed to give out and he fell off a cliff. Owed a whopping $6.95 million salary in 2014, the 31-year-old won't return to the G-Men without a huge pay cut.

FOX Sports reports Giants RG Chris Snee (hip) is "likely" headed to season-ending injured reserve Friday.

Mike Garafolo reports Snee will likely need surgery on his ailing hip after it has failed to respond to rehab. It would be a big loss for the Giants, though Snee has been a major liability this season. James Brewer will continue to fill in at right guard. Snee, 31, is in the final year of his deal.

The Newark Star-Ledger reports Giants RG Chris Snee (hip) could require season-ending surgery.

Per beat writer Conor Orr, Snee is in "immense pain," and "can't move." It sounds like Snee could be headed to injured reserve as soon as this week. James Brewer is filling in at right guard.

Giants RG Chris Snee (hip) and C David Baas (knee) have been ruled out for Week 4 at Kansas City.

Although Snee and Baas have struggled this season along with the rest of the Giants' line, it's an ominous sign for Eli Manning, David Wilson, and New York's wideouts in an already difficult matchup on the road at Arrowhead.

Giants RG Chris Snee underwent an MRI on his hip.

It's a concern because Snee had hip surgery in the offseason after battling issues with the joint throughout 2012. Along with the rest of the Giants line, Snee has been awful this season. He's already given up three sacks and 10 quarterback hurries in three games. "I think he's got some issues," coach Tom Coughlin said Monday. "We're trying to figure out where that is right now."
Tue, Sep 24, 2013 08:43:00 AM

Giants RG Chris Snee has restructured his contract.

Snee has agreed to convert $2.5 million of his $6.7 million salary into a bonus, which can be pro-rated over the final three years of his contract (2014 is a voidable year). The maneuver clears $1.25 million in cap space for the G-Men. P Steve Weatherford has also agreed to a restructure.
Thu, Sep 5, 2013 03:13:00 PM

Giants activated RG Chris Snee (hip surgery) from active/PUP.

Snee battled through hip pain last season, but didn't miss a game and was ProFootballFocus' No. 13 guard. The four-time Pro Bowler should have more mobility this season.
Tue, Aug 6, 2013 11:08:00 AM

Giants RG Chris Snee (hip surgery) and C David Baas (elbow surgery) are both expected to practice on the first day of training camp.

Snee has been working out individually for nearly two months, but is still wearing a heavy wrap around his hip. Baas is continuing to recover from elbow and knee injuries. Coach Tom Coughlin said he anticipates both will be able to resume football activities by the start of training camp.
