The New York Giants’ Chris Snee is willing to take a pay cut if it means he can remain with the team for another year, according to NBC Sports.
It’s believed that the 32-year-old guard wants to say with the Giants for at least another season, but the franchise will only take him on board if he consents to taking a hit to his pay packet.
Snee is currently earning $6.75million as a base salary, and it’s thought that the Giants want to significantly reduce that figure in order to let him return to the squad in preparation for next year.
Having suffered a hip injury which ruled him out of most of 2013, Snee is determined to return to the Giants’ ranks, and admitted he isn't concerned with money so long as he can return to protecting Eli Manning once again.
“That’s my job. I never complained about money. I’ll do what I have to for the team to get better,” Snee said.
As for the Giants, they will be hoping for a better season than the one which has just finished. Snee’s side failed to make the playoffs and lost 13 matches in 2013.
