He was the Giants 2nd round pick in the 2009 draft but only started 1 game, he played a total of 24.

The kid had two ACL tears in 2011, and never fully recovered, smart of him to retire to keep his health. He didn't look bad as a rotational player in 2009 and 2010, I was thinking after 2010 he had a chance of cracking the starting lineup in camp.

Good luck to him in his future endeavors.

Sad. Though he never really fitted a 4-3

Yeah, I really would have liked to see what he would have looked like in a 3-4

I never really understood why the Giants drafted him. He was much better suited for a 3-4 defense. Either way, he never recovered from his knee injuries, and it's a shame. I liked him coming out of UVA.

Didnt the Giants run a blitz heavy 4-3 scheme, with Kiwanuka always at OLB. Sintim could have fit that role just fine, but he wasnt any good.

The Giants like to have a big outside linebacker on the strong side. Quite frankly, we've had a lot of disappointments at the position. Carlos Emmons, Lavar Arrington, Clint Sintim, Mathias Kiwanuka. The Giants can't really seem to find what they're looking for at that position.

Apparently they are looking at Aaron Curry.

Dang, really liked him in college. Didn't understand him going to the Giants, as he was naturally a 3-4 LB. Shame his career had to end so early due to ACL tears...

Coming out he was more of an all around 3-4 OLB that had value due to his ability to set the edge vs the run and drop in coverage. His pass rush was decent at best. Could've been a rich mans Erik Walden if he landed in a 3-4 scheme and stayed healthy IMO.
