You would think the Giants would avoid all gun references after the shot that felled their 2008 season. But Antrel Rolle insisted the safeties' nickname for themselves - "AK-47, wih the clip" - has nothing to do with firearms.

Let Rolle explain:

"AK-47 with the clip means you’ve got Antrel, number 26, then you have Kenny Phillips, number 21. AK equals 47. But none of that works without the clip, and the clip is none other than Deon Grant."

Oh.
