Tyree And Hilliard Retire As Giants

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – Former first-round draft pick Ike Hilliard and Super Bowl hero David Tyree have retired as members of the New York Giants.

The Giants announced the retirements of the two receivers Friday.

Tyree will always be remembered for his one-handed catch against his helmet in the 2008 Super Bowl. He signed a one-day contract and retired Thursday. His career was slowed for the past two years by a knee injury. He spent part of last season with the Baltimore Ravens.

Hilliard was the seventh player taken in the 1997 draft and is fifth in career receptions for the Giants. He signed his one-day contract and retired Friday.

Hilliard last played in the NFL in 2008 with Tampa Bay. He is now an assistant coach for the Florida Tuskers of the UFL.
