One of the steadiest and most overlooked players on the Giants for the last decade is coming back for more.
Zak DeOssie, the Giants' long-time long snapper, signed a new two-year contract on Friday afternoon. The financial details were not immediately available, but DeOssie said he never considered hitting the market and potentially playing somewhere else.
"In theory, you could be a free agent, but there's nowhere else I'd rather play," DeOssie said in a statement released by the Giants. "I knew that from day one when I stepped in here after I got drafted. I'm very fortunate to still be here and contribute in any way possible."
DeOssie, who'll be 33 years old in May, has been the Giants' long-snapper since 2007 when -- as a linebacker -- he was a fourth-round pick out of Brown. He's snapped for all but the four games he missed in 2015 when he injured his wrist, and has been nearly perfect in his execution.
The son of former Giants linebacker Steve DeOssie, he's also the second-longest tenured player on the Giants, just behind quarterback Eli Manning, who was drafted in 2004. Manning and DeOssie are the only remaining players who played on both the Giants' Super Bowl XLII and XLVI championship teams.
DeOssie played last season on a one-year, $1.1 million contract.
