A career special-teamer and reserve wide receiver, Tyree's football-to-helmet catch in Super Bowl XLII will go down as one of the most unforgettable and miraculous plays in NFL history. The reception, which set up the Giants' game-winning touchdown that denied the Patriots a perfect season, proved to be Tyree's last for Big Blue. He missed the entire 2008 season with injury and was cut in September 2009.
