Giants Pleased with Decision on Pierce

Needless to say, the Giants were happy about the grand jury's vote of "no bill" on Antonio Pierce.

Here's what the key members of the organization had to say...

President John Mara: "We certainly agree with the grand jury's decision. We said last week we felt strongly that Antonio's actions did not warrant criminal charges, and obviously the grand jury, having heard all of the testimony, felt the same way."

Chairman Steve Tisch: "This was an extremely serious matter that Antonio and our organization responded to in an appropriate way. Needless to say, we are happy with the decision announced today by the Manhattan district attorney's office.."

General Manager Jerry Reese: "Antonio is a leader on this team, but he is still human, and this has been an emotionally draining experience for him. We know he was happy to get to training camp yesterday, and with this behind him, he can focus all his energy and efforts on football. He took this matter very seriously."

Head Coach Tom Coughlin: "As I said yesterday, we are anxious to start the new season, nobody more than Antonio. Today's decision allows him and this team to move forward and focus on our preparation for the season."
