Kareem McKenzie Will Not Return To The Giants, According To Report

Right tackle Kareem McKenzie, who has started 105 games since joining the Giants in 2005, will not be back with the team in 2012, according to a report in the North Jersey Record.

McKenzie, 33, will become an unrestricted free agent on March 13th (the start of the new league year), and will have to look for work elsewhere, as the Giants are prepared to move forward with promising youngsters - including Mitch Petrus and James Brewer - on the roster.

Originally a 2001 third round pick by the Jets, McKenzie has played his entire professional career for the two New York franchises. A Penn State grad and Trenton, NJ native, McKenzie started in each of the Giants recent Super Bowl victories, and has 149 career starts to his name.
