The New York giants has release their team defense captain Antonio Pierce.
The Giants will announce the move soon, according to the Star-Ledger.
Pierce was the Giants’ defensive captain and had been with the franchise for five seasons. He made the Pro Bowl in the 2006 season, when he made a career-high 137 tackles, but he struggled with injuries this past season and played in just nine games.
The Miami Dolphins need a middle linebacker that could lead their defense and can actually help cover tight end, and Antonio Pierce could to do all that, plus he is a former team defense captain which mean he could lead the dolphins defense, with them signing Antonio, they will no longer need to draft a linebacker that could start right away. They could draft one in the second or third round of the NFL draft to be Antonio pierce understudy.
