Long Snapper Zak DeOssie is entering his 10th season in a Giants uniform


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today announced they have re-signed long-snapper Zak DeOssie.

A fourth-round draft choice in 2007, DeOssie played in 149 consecutive regular-season and postseason games in nine seasons before he was placed on injured reserve last Dec. 8 with a wrist injury. He later underwent surgery.

DeOssie and Eli Manning are the only two remaining players from both the Super Bowl XLII and XLVI championship teams. He is the second-longest tenured Giants player, behind Manning. DeOssie was a Pro Bowler in 2008 and 2010.

DeOssie has been elected the Giants’ special teams captain by his teammates each of the last five seasons. In addition to snapping on both punts and placekicks, DeOssie has 71 career regular-season special teams tackles, plus seven in the postseason.
