If you are in the greater New York/New Jersey area and see Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora, let him know the Giants are looking for him.
Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger reports via Twitter that Umenyiora “apparently went AWOL” Monday and Giants coach Tom Coughlin confirmed that it was an unexcused absence.
At this point, there isn’t much information about the situation out there. Garafolo used the word “camp fatigue” in a later tweet, which could be mental.
Umenyiora has been looking for a new contract for a while, so that could be part of the equation. It’s safe to say this isn’t the last of this story you’ll hear in the coming days.
