Who led the Giants in tackles in 1996?
According to ProFootballReference.com the team's leading tackler that year was LB Jesse Armstead with 114 (83 solo). FYI....the NFL did not keep official stats on tackles until 2001, so these numbers are naturally unofficial. But if you were paying attention, you will remember that Armstead was in on the most tackles that (and many other) seasons.
CB Jason Sehorn also had 83 solo tackles in '96, btw....but only had 14 assists....
