A hero of Super Bowl XLII, he has spent most of his NFL career recovering from injuries. From ESPN-
The New York Giants have cut David Tyree, the receiver who cradled a catch against his helmet to prolong a game-winning drive at the end of Super Bowl XLII.
“I talked to [assistant GM] Kevin Abrams this morning and he said it was a very tough decision for the team,” Michael Clouser, Tyree’s agent, told The Newark Star-Ledger on Saturday. “Like anyone else, it was a tough thing for David to hear. He’s actually saying his goodbyes to his teammates right now.”
A team source confirmed Tyree’s release to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Leg injuries kept Tyree from playing at all in 2008 and limited him to four catches during the 2007 regular season. He pulled in three catches for 43 yards in the Super Bowl, as the Giants beat the New England Patriots 17-14.
Another NFL team may be willing to give Tyree a shot. The Giants also look likely only to carry two quarterbacks this year.(Eli Manning and David Carr) It’s always a gamble not to have a third signal caller, but I think the risk is justified. Two quarterbacks getting knocked out of action in the same game doesn’t occur that often.
