In his first season with the Giants, DeOssie picked off a pass, returning in ten yards, while also making an official 19 tackles. DeOssie's finest season in New York might have been his second with Big Blue. Starting in 13 of 16 regular season games, DeOssie made a hefty 53 tackles. Filling both the linebacker and long snapper roles for the Giants, DeOssie helped guide the Giants defensive backfield to Super Bowl XXV and a second championship, this time over the Buffalo Bills.
The fun-loving DeOssie in his five seasons for Big Blue, registered 124 tackles officially in the regular season, starting in 29 of his 61 games played with the team.
Did you know...........that Steve is the father of New York Giants long snapper Zak DeOssie, the best to ever wear number 51 for Big Blue?
