"During his absence, Larry has participated in a regular counseling program and recommitted himself to the organization. As he transitions back into his role with the Giants, he will initially focus on reconnecting with the employees and receiving updates on all aspects of the organization.

Baer also released a statement, saying he embraces the team's structural changes and that, "while my time away has been difficult on many levels, it has allowed me opportunities for introspection...I am wiser for it, and the work continues."
