Umenyiora is allowed to show up for work Tuesday, but he’s reportedly not planning to do so. He may not come back for a while.
WFAN in New York reports Umenyiora is “expected to hold out” of training camp, citing sources from both sides. Camp doesn’t officially start for a few days. ESPN’s Adam Schefter wondered aloud earlier this week whether Umenyiora could be a release candidate. (That would be a surprise.)
Perhaps Umenyiora will try to push for a trade. Any team interested in him would have to give him a big contract extension in addition to a draft pick to the Giants.
