Word around the Giants since the end of the regular season has been that David Diehl would choose to retire after his 11th season and Diehl proved that there was fire behind that smoke on Friday.
Diehl announced through the Giants that he is calling an end to a career spent entirely with Big Blue. Diehl joined the team as a fifth-round pick in 2003 and started every game as a rookie on the way to 160 starts over the course of his Giants career. Diehl saw time at left tackle, right tackle, left guard and right guard over the course of his career and was a starter on both Giants Super Bowl winners in the Tom Coughlin era.
