    GIANTS, UMENYIORA TO "REDO" CONTRACT IN COMING WEEKS?

    "All is currently quiet on the Osi
    Umenyiora
    front, but as the NFL Draft approaches, that is subject to change. Paul
    Dottino of WFAN tweeted on Thursday night that the he believes Osi and the New York
    Giants will soon begin discussing a new deal to keep the defensive end in
    blue.



    New York Giants defensive lineman Osi
    Umenyiora
    speaks at a press conference during Super Bowl week in
    Indianapolis on February 2, 2012, 2012. Umenyiora was fined for missing a Super
    Bowl media session on Wednesday. The Giants will face the New England Patriots
    in Super Bowl XLVI on February 5. UPI/Kevin Dietsch





















    "think will see redo (trade less likely) for osi in few wks," Dottino tweeted in response to a question about Osi's
    status.




    As recently as late February, Umenyiora had been vocal about his desire to
    remain with the Giants – a far cry from his feelings following the NFL Lockout when
    he demanded a trade or significant pay increase.





    “You know what’s so funny?” Umenyiora said. “If it came down to me taking less to stay
    here, I would.”




    Due to earn a base salary of $3.975 million in 2012, Osi undoubtedly would
    still prefer a raise. And after watching Mario Williams haul in $100 million for
    six-years ($50 million guaranteed), there's got be some Benjamin's dancing in
    his head. Still, winning cures all and that's exactly what happened in 2011.
    Whether or not the good feelings continue to carry over … well, that remains to
    be seen.




    In nine games last season, Umenyiora made 25 tackles, collected nine sacks
    and forced two fumbles. He added nine tackles, 3.5 sacks and forced an
    additional fumble in the playoffs.




    He is in the final year of his current contract."

      Thanks Roanoke. Hopefully they can come to terms, but JR/TC will have thoroughly discussed and explored all options and potential prospects in advance.

      I loved this hilarious response:

      "Krow says:


      It’s not a problem paying Osi … it’ a problem paying the imaginary Osi that the real Osi thinks he is.



      See
      the real Osi is an incredible pass rusher. Maybe the best 3rd down
      specialist in the NFL. And that’s a huge, valuable talent. However the
      imaginary Osi is a 3 down player, a force against the run as well as
      the pass. He’s the second coming of Michael Strahan.



      The trouble is that the real Osi wants to get paid like the imaginary Osi would … if he existed … which he doesn’t.



      Clear? LOL"

        Good news
        Football has been very, very good to us.
        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

        # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
        2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
        4-New York Giants!!!
        5-NE
        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

            Maybe I'm wrong,but couldn't we actually save some $$$ with osi's cap hit this season if we gave him a new deal??

              What's nice to know is that JPP is also all for keeping Osi. I'd imagine they'll extend Osi 3-4 years through right around the end of JPP's rookie deal then obviously extend him. No way the NYG let a pass rusher of his caliber leave this team. He's a freak of nature
