The ugly situation between the New York Giants and disgruntled defensive end Osi Umenyiora has taken another ugly turn. As has become customary during this training camp Umenyiora spent most of practice on an exercise. According to various reports, he is now claiming to have a sore knee that could require surgery.
The Giants, from the sounds of it, don’t believe him.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily news the skeptical Giants still do not intend to either give Umenyiora a raise or trade him.
Umenyiora, of course, wants to re-negotiate his current contract, which has tow years remaining. The Giants have been reluctant to do so.
It seems impossible at this point for the Giants and Umenyiora to reconcile their differences. It will be intersting to see if the NFL gets involved in this squabble at some point. The Giants and Umenyiora seem unable to find a solution.
