Giants' Afternoon News Update: Five captains selected

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

New York Giants' players have voted to elect five captains for the 2013 season.

The players voted to retain incumbent captains Eli Manning, Justin Tuck and Zak DeOssie and also elected guard Chris Snee and safety Antrel Rolle.

"These guys were all elected by the players," coach Tom Coughlin said. "Am I happy they were selected? Yes, I am because I think the number one thing is always ‘team' and people have to lead by example, first, and ‘well done is better than well said.' Yet, through the course of the long and difficult, challenging season, you're going to see an opportunity for people to show what they're made of in good and bad and that's where leadership comes from. Adversity, remember, makes you stronger, according to John Wooden."

Five captains is the Giants' highest total since 2008.

The Giants' captains since 2007:

2007: Eli Manning, Shaun O'Hara, Michael Strahan, Antonio Pierce, Jeff Feagles
2008:
Manning, Amani Toomer, Pierce, Fred Robbins, Feagles
2009: Manning, Pierce, Feagles
