Giants owner John Mara said he wanted Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora and G.M. Jerry Reese to hash their differences out behind closed doors.
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.
