NY Giants edge rusher Olivier Vernon will likely be playing his last stretch of games with the organization. 

According to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, Olivier Vernon’s future is “probably not with the Giants” after this season.

After missing the first five games of the season due to an ankle injury, Vernon has recorded just eight tackles on 294 snaps.
