Giants release punter Brad Wing after a struggling season
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have released Brad Wing, who struggled as their punter last season.
The team announced his contract termination Saturday. He had been the Giants punter the last three seasons.
His 36.7-yard net average last season ranked last in the NFL among punters eligible for the final statistics. Short punts in games against Philadelphia and Tampa Bay proved costly in losses. He also had two punts blocked for the first time in his career.
Wing’s best season was in 2016. His 40.9-yard net average ranked 10th in the league and was a team record for a season.
Wing was traded to the Giants in 2015 after punting for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2014.
