Osi Umenyiora wasn’t one of the antitrust plaintiffs that tried to work a side deal Tuesday before giving up. His beef seems to be with the Giants, not the NFL.
Ralph Vacciano of the New York Daily News writes Umeyiora still wants Giants G.M. Jerry Reese to make good on what he believes was a “promise” to upgrade his contract.
A holdout is reportedly a consideration for the defensive end, although the Giants hope to handle things behind closed doors. For that to happen, Umenyiora will need to show up for work.
