Zak DeOssie, the New York Giants’ long-time special teams captain who served as their long snapper on two Super Bowl championship teams, will reportedly join another former Giant captain, Justin Tuck, at financial giant Goldman Sachs.

DeOssie, 36, was a fourth-round pick out of Brown where he was a three-time, first team All-Ivy League selection at linebacker. He was the first Brown player ever invited to the NFL Combine.

DeOssie played 13 seasons for the Giants and was named to two Pro Bowls. He is the son of former Giants linebacker Steve DeOssie, who was a member of the Giants Super Bowl XXV team that beat the Buffalo Bills, 20-19.

DeOssie retired after the 2019 season and will now put his Ivy League education to work to assist in the success of others.

“DeOssie joined Goldman Sachs Private Wealth Management to take up a role advising high-net-worth individuals, families and institutions on wealth planning and smart investment strategies,” writes Andy Frye of Forbes’ SportsMoney.

“The opportunity to help people preserve and grow their hard-earned wealth is what drives me,” DeOssie said regarding his new role. He also said during his time as a sports pro that, “I saw firsthand how wealth can be managed (or mismanaged) and how critical that is, and that’s when it clicked for me.”

DeOssie played his entire career with the Giants and his 199 games played are the fifth most in a Giant uniform behind Eli Manning (236), Michael Strahan (216), Howard Cross (207) and George Martin (201).

He spoke about his long affiliation with the Giants.

“The Giants are a historic sports franchise surrounded by an incredible fan base,” he said. “From top to bottom, the Giants treat their players with respect while also instilling a championship culture. I’m incredibly grateful to have played my entire career with this organization, and what’s even more special than the professional aspect of my time with the Giants is the lifelong relationships and friendships I have made along the way.

“Personally, it also holds significance because my dad played and won a Super Bowl with the Giants, as well. As you can imagine, Super Bowl wins aren’t so easy to come by, so we’re proud to be able to say that the DeOssies were a part of thee Super Bowl winning Giants teams.”
