Giants co-owner John Mara has said that he’d like to see defensive end Osi Umenyiora and G.M. Jerry Reese work out their differences privately.
Osi has declined, publicly.
Per Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Umenyiora has made an unexpected appearance at Giants camp. Vacchiano reports, citing an unnamed source, that Osi still wants a new contract or a trade, and that he doesn’t plan to speak to Reese “ever again.”
Umenyiora’s agent, Tony Agnone, tells Vacchiano that Osi will “very anxious to talk” to someone: The media.
The veteran defensive end, who seemingly has been unhappy with his long-term deal since the day after he signed it, missed one practice on Friday. He received a letter from the team advising that he’ll be fined the new maximum of $30,000 for each day missed while under contract.
