Giants Terminate the Contract of Punter Brad Wing

The Giants today announced that it has terminated the contract of Brad Wing, who punted in every game for the Giants the previous three seasons.

After an outstanding 2016 season, Wing struggled at times last year. His 36.7-yard net average ranked last in the NFL among punters eligible to be included in the final league statistics, while his gross average of 44.1 yards tied for 24th. Short Wing punts in Philadelphia and Tampa Bay were among the plays that led to late Giants’ losses. He also had two punts blocked for the first time in his career.

Wing was traded to the Giants on Sept. 4, 2015, after punting for the Pittsburgh Steelers in his debut season the previous year. In his first Giants season, Wing had a 44.5-yard gross average and a 38.9-yard net average on 76 punts. His 33 punts inside the 20-yard line tied the Giants’ single-season record, set by Brad Maynard in both 1997 and 98.
