Tyree And Hilliard

Two of the Giants former crowd favorites have officially retired as Giants. Ike Hilliard, the wonderful possession receiver, and David Tyree, who we'll all remember for his Super Bowl catch, signed one-day contracts so they could retire with the team they gave their greatest thrills to.

Hilliard, a hard-nosed receiver who broke just about every bone in his body during an eight-year career in the Meadowlands, is going to be an assistant coach with the Florida Tuskers of the UFL.

Tyree, known before The Catch as one of the Giants' greatest kick coverage specialists, finished up with Baltimore last season and will now begin the post-football phase of his life with his family, which includes a newborn son.

  1. Jezz that Tyree sure loves to procreate. Good luck to Tyree and Ike in their post football days.
