David Tyree is known for one thing and one thing only: making one of the greatest catches in Super Bowl history. Unfortunately, making a memorable catch is good enough to get you tryouts with teams in the NFL but not good enough to land you a roster spot if your ability is not up to par. That’s the case for Tyree who played five seasons for the Giants and 10 games last year with the Ravens. He admitted that he wasn’t really in playing shape and sensed that his retirement was coming. The time has indeed come and Tyree is signing a one-day contract with New York to retire as a Giant. How quaint.
For the occasion of his retirement, let’s roll video of David Tyree’s catch in the Super Bowl. Close your eyes Pats fans:
How the heck Eli escaped the pressure and Tyree made that grab is beyond me. I guess some things are just meant to be. Tyree certainly left his mark on the game and will be remembered by football fans everywhere.Google+
