You may have read that Norman Hand, the defensive tackle who played 11 games for the Giants in 2004, died Friday. According to the Post and Courier of Charleston, S.C., an autopsy over the weekend revealed the former Charger and Saint died of heart disease.
The Giants were the 37-year-old Hand's final stop in a 10-year career. He was listed at 310 pounds, though he was known to weigh much more than that.
In other news, the team's first OTA is scheduled for tomorrow. All healthy members are expected to be in attendance, even though most OTAs are of a voluntary nature. The only mandatory sessions are the ones that compose the full-team minicamp on June 15-17.
