    GIANTS' GM REESE SAYS HE'LL MEET WITH UMENYIORA'S AGENT SOON

    "Giants general manager Jerry Reese is
    unsure whether Osi Umenyiora 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.




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




    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.




    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.




    Earlier this week, Umenyiora
    said
    that while he wanted to stay in New York, he could foresee being traded
    if the team determined that was the best move."
