Strahan subtly stated: "It’s time. I’m done."
Strahan said he wanted to make his decision before this week’s minicamp so the players and organization could move forward. He was due to earn $4 million in 2008, and according to sources, the Giants were willing to increase that total to about $6.5 million.
In 15 years, he accumulated 141 1/2 career sacks and set an NFL record with 22 1/2 sacks in 2001.
