Free agent C Shaun O'Hara is retiring from football.
35-year-old O'Hara has decided to hang up his cleats after 11 years and 151 games in the NFL. Plagued by foot issues, O'Hara sat out last season after being limited to just six games in 2010. A three-time Pro Bowler, he spent seven years with the Giants, and four with the Browns. Mon, Sep 3, 2012 12:26:00 PM

ESPN New York expects the Jets to reach out to free agent C Shaun O'Hara if rookie C Colin Baxter falters in place of Nick Mangold (ankle) in Oakland this Sunday.

The Jets will be facing two of the league's best nose tackles in Baltimore's Haloti Ngata and New England's Vince Wilfork in weeks four and five, so upgrading Baxter will be a must if he bombs in Oakland and Mangold proves to be slow healing. The Dolphins are the only team known to have worked out O'Hara since he was released by the Giants.

The Dolphins do not have imminent plans to add free agent C Shaun O'Hara, a source tells the Miami Herald.

O'Hara is 34 and coming off two surgeries on his feet. The Dolphins would be silly to guarantee his contract for the entire season, even if they need a mentor for rookie C Mike Pouncey.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins remain a possible landing spot for free agent C Shaun O'Hara.

O'Hara visited Miami a week ago, and is said to still be "mulling his options." The Dolphins are the only team O'Hara is known to have visited since being released by the Giants on July 26. If he's waiting on a better offer, there's a good chance he's doing so in vain.

Free agent C Shaun O'Hara will visit the Dolphins.

O'Hara was limited to just six games as he dealt with injuries to both feet last season, but would be valuable insurance for rookie C Mike Pouncey if healthy. The Giants are reportedly open to re-signing their long-time starter, but he doesn't seem all that likely to return to the Big Apple.

The Giants will reportedly release C Shaun O'Hara.

GM Jerry Reese was fully expected to balk at his $3.45 million salary after the center missed six games last year. O'Hara recently turned 34, and he's coming off two surgeries to fix problems with both of his feet. Adam Koets, returning from ACL surgery, now tops the depth chart at center.

As planned, Giants C Shaun O'Hara had surgery this week to clean out a bone chip in his left Achilles' tendon.

It doesn't sound nearly as serious as surgery for a torn Achilles', but the Giants have publicly expressed concern about the center position this offseason. O'Hara promises he'll be able to resume running in mid-May and "will be fully recovered in time for training camp." We'll see, said the Zen master.

Giants C Shaun O'Hara will undergo surgery in two weeks to clean out a bone chip embedded in his left Achilles' tendon.

O'Hara already has his right foot in a boot after January surgery. Turning 34 in June, O'Hara insists he'll be ready for training camp. Coach Tom Coughlin is less optimistic, conceding concern about the center position with O'Hara, Rich Seubert, and Adam Koets all recovering from surgeries.

The Newark Star-Ledger suggests that Giants C Shaun O'Hara (Achilles, foot) could be an offseason salary casualty.

O'Hara turns 34 in June and is due $3.45 million after undergoing two surgeries to fix problems with both of his feet and missing all but six games last season. At the very least, the Giants should ask O'Hara to take a pay cut. They continue to have major question marks all along the front five.

Giants C Shaun O'Hara underwent surgery Wednesday to have a screw placed in his injured right foot.

It's the first of two operations he'll undergo, as he's dealing with problems on both feet. Once doctors are convinced O'Hara's foot has healed, they'll "clean out" his left ankle, removing a bone chip that is embedded in his Achilles' tendon. Though a firm timetable hasn't been established, a source told the New York Daily News that the Giants are hoping he'll be ready for the team's mini-camp in June.

Giants C Shaun O'Hara has pulled out of the Pro Bowl and will undergo surgery to remove a bone chip embedded in his Achilles' tendon.

He never deserved a Pro Bowl bid anyway. O'Hara, who has two years left on his $19 million contract, is confident that the procedure will "return him to top shape." The Giants need that to happen, because No. 2 center (and starting left guard) Rich Seubert is coming off a ruptured patellar tendon.

Giants C Shaun O'Hara concedes that he'll need "cleanup" surgery on his Achilles after the season.

O'Hara has dealt with the nagging injury all season long. A perfect example of the inherited nature of Pro Bowl recognition at center, O'Hara made the roster this year after playing just six of 15 games. The 33-year-old is under contract for $3.5 million in 2011, the final year of his contract.

Giants C Shaun O'Hara aggravated his ankle/Achilles issue in Week 16.

We had been led to believe his injury was a Lisfranc sprain, but either way, it's bad news. The Giants haven't ruled him out, but the New York Post's Paul Schwartz doesn't think O'Hara, who was recently named to the Pro Bowl, will play this weekend. That would leave Rich Seubert to handle center.

Giants C Shaun O'Hara (questionable, foot) expects to play in Week 15 against Philadelphia.

The veteran center comes back just in time for Sunday's marquee matchup after missing the past six games due to a Lisfranc sprain in his right foot. Said O'Hara, "something about playing the Eagles makes you feel better all over."
Fri, Dec 17, 2010 07:08:00 PM

Giants C Shaun O'Hara (doubtful, foot) made the trip with the team to Minnesota.

It's a start, but he'll likely be a game time decision. LT/LG David Diehl (probable, hamstring) made the trip and is expected to play. LT Shawn Andrews was the only injured Giant who did not travel with the team.
