Michael Strahan (pictured) extended his offseason more than five weeks. It cost him more than $500,000 in fines—a pricey vacation no matter who you are. But the New York Giants Hall-of-Fame defensive end finally ended his holdout yesterday and reported to training camp, just six days before the G-Men’s season opener.
Strahan, of course, didn’t practice, because who needs practice? He arrived at Giant Stadium at 4 p.m., handled paperwork, had a brief meeting with head coach Tom Coughlin, took a physical and left after 45 minutes. Now that’s dedication.
The Giants did not announce if Strahan will be ready for the team’s season opener against Dallas on Sunday night, but longtime teammate and Giant wide receiver Amani Toomer thinks the seven-time Pro Bowler will play. “Considering he’s put in seven or eight years more than anyone here, and he’s been to more training camps than anyone here, he’s fine,” Toomer said.
