Happy trails Antonio Pierce

The Giants announced today that they've cut  LB Antonio Pierce after 5 years with the team.

"They obviously wanted to move in another direction. I have no animosity," Pierce said by phone. "If anything, I’m excited about it. One thing about it – I’m at peace with it, because I know for five years I gave this organization, this city, everybody, I gave everything I had. I don’t regret anything. Any situation, even the negative with the Plaxico (Burress) situation."

Pierce has been a face of the Giants and a key figure in their rivalry with the Eagles over the past few years. Although frankly, he mostly struggled against our Birds and wherever he ends up(if anywhere) I'm sure he'll be happy to see the back of Brian Westbrook... Come to think of it, he's probably pretty used to seeing the back of Westbrook.

There's several guys on those good Giant defenses that I've liked and respected, Pierce is not one of them. He was a big trash talker, but on the field he was always kinda slow... Plus, I never liked his yearly whining about not making the pro bowl. Getting rid of him was a smart move forward for the Giants.
