The New York Giants will pay tribute to Frank Gifford by wearing No. 16 on their helmets, team co-owner John Mara told WFAN on Monday.
In a statement, Commissioner Roger Goodell called Mara “a tower of strength, dignity and inspiration for her family and all of us in the NFL.”
Mara, 85, slipped in front of her home in Rye, New York, during an ice storm last month, Giants president and CEO John Mara, Ann’s son, said.
The Vegas odds makers have no idea the kind of favor they did the Giants when their Super Bowl lines came out.
First the Super Bowl, now an Oscar nomination. This week has been kind to the Mara family. February could be even better.
You don’t mess with the Giants’ matriarch. Bradshaw learned that the hard way.
