BAYONNE, N.J. - The New York Giants' offensive line seen for most of last season will likely be the same at the start of this season.

And according to left guard Justin Pugh, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

No, the Giants' line did not play well last season, and no, the team didn't do much to improve the personnel this offseason. But as Pugh, a fifth-year veteran, said on Monday, continuity "is the most important thing with offensive line play."

Former TE Daniel Fells has announced his retirement from the National Football League in a post to Instagram.

"I wish I was heading into battle with my brothers as training camp starts up this week but I also believe that everything happens for a reason. Although playing the game is no longer in the cards for me I'm grateful for the 10 year career that I was blessed to experience," he wrote.

Fells last played for the Giants last season, appearing in two games before being diagnosed with a staph infection. By the time Fells was admitted to the hospital, the infection was so advanced that doctors contemplated amputating his foot. While it didn't come to that, Fells has gone through at least 10 surgeries to treat the infection.
