Here's the quote from Rotoworld: Giants placed MLB Antonio Pierce on injured reserve with a bulging disc in his neck, ending his season. A neck specialist informed Pierce last week that he wouldn't need surgery, but the Giants apparently couldn't hold his roster spot any longer. Chase Blackburn will finish the year starting in the middle. Beat reporter Mike Garafolo suggests that Pierce's Giants career may be over. The 31-year-old has declined over the past two seasons, and is due $4.75 million in 2010.
Although Pierce was the quarterback of that defense for a while, it is understandable why his time might be up. It's time to sign a Free Agent on the open market. DeMeco Ryans or Kirk Morrison are names that certainly come to mind.
