Joe Looney shockingly retires from Giants shortly after signing

Breathtaking news has arrived for the New York Giants as veteran offensive lineman Joe Looney retired just days after signing with the team.

Joe Looney’s game days at the New York Giants are over before they even started. Looney signed with the Giants on Saturday, arrived at training camp and wasted no time turning heads.

The former cowboy saw working with the second team’s offensive line and looked like a natural fit. However, Giants insider Jordan Raanan reports that Looney has decided to leave the team and hang up his shoes instead of playing this season.

Again, this is some pretty surprising news, especially since Looney looked damn hot to start out with New York. After five years with the Cowboys, Looney was reunited with Jason Garrett in East Rutherford.

Last season for the Cowboys, Looney, who also appeared for the San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans, appeared in 13 games and started 12 of them. In his nine-year career, the 6-foot-3, 315-pounder played in 104 competitions.

Interestingly, Looney is the second player to sign with New York last Saturday and then decided to retire this week. Linebacker Todd Davis also took the same step on Tuesday. This also comes a day after a massive brawl broke out while training. This is certainly a big concern for head coach Joe Judge. Things have to change and quickly.
