GIANTS' GM REESE SAYS HE'LL MEET WITH UMENYIORA'S AGENT SOON (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d82730c17/article/giants-gm-reese-says-hell-meet-with-umenyioras-agent-soon)

"Giants general manager Jerry Reese is
unsure whether Osi Umenyiora (/players/osiumenyiora/profile?id=UME444955) would take
less money to finish his career in New York.


Instead, Reese believes the recent comments by Umenyiora might have been
"taken out of context." Umenyiora told Sirius XM's Mad Dog Radio on Friday that
he would be willing to give the Giants a hometown discount, saying "If it came
down to me taking less to stay here, I would," according to the New York Post (http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/giantsblog/osi_says_he_give_giants_discount_KqiB1g2aW6zQaNg5s 7YQUM).</p>


Reese said he understands the motivation behind Umenyiora's sentiment: He
wants to retire having played for only one team.</p>


But the two have not spoken since the Super Bowl parade and Reese doesn't
consider the decision about a long-term deal a "pressing matter." He expects to
meet with Umenyiora's agent soon.</p>


The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end was a holdout during training camp last
summer over his contract. Umenyiora finished with nine sacks in nine games in
2011 and is slated to earn $3.975 million next season, the final year of a
seven-year deal.</p>

said</a> that while he wanted to stay in New York, he could foresee being traded
if the team determined that was the best move."</p>
