    GIANTS SIGN MATHIAS KIWANUKA TO THREE-YEAR, $ 16.5 MILLION CONTRACT EXTENSION THROUGH 2015

    "If Osi
    Umenyiora was unhappy with his situation
    the other day, he can't possibly be
    pleased with the news the Giants slipped
    through the back door recently.


    The team signed linebacker/defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka to a three-year
    contract extension through the 2015 season, according to NFL Players Association
    records. (Good eyes by Ralph Vacchiano, who noted
    the extension first
    .)




    According to someone who viewed the contract details, the total value of the
    contract is $21.75 million over four years. The "new" money is $16.5 million
    over three years (2013-15). Kiwanuka received a signing bonus of $8.5 million
    and gets $10.95 million in guarantees.




    In an email, Umenyiora only addressed his pleasure his teammate and friend,
    not his situation.




    "Well, I can say I'm happy for Kiwi, that's for sure," Umenyiora wrote. "He
    deserves it, after all he has been through. It's a good move by them."




    A few minutes later, he added, "It's business. I don't feel anything but
    happy for Kiwi honestly. My situation will take care of itself soon."




    Kiwanuka
    had signed a two-year deal last summer
    while an unrestricted free agent
    following a neck issue that kept him out of the final 13 games of the 2010
    season. He was scheduled to earn $4 million in base salary this season but that
    figure has now been lowered to $950,000.




    Kiwanuka's base salaries for 2012-15 are: $2.95 million, $4.375 million and
    $4.775 million.




    (I'm waiting on the full numbers on the deal. Will get them to you as soon as
    possible.)




    Kiwanuka, 29, had only 3˝ sacks last season but was credited with a
    career-high 84 tackles and was a big part of the team's run defense by keeping
    containment on the outside. He also proved his herniated disk was not an issue
    despite plenty of repeated contact with opposing blockers and ball carriers. He
    participated in 77.9 percent of the team's defensive snaps.




    Why this extension was kept on the hush for this long and not leaked is
    unclear at this point.

    One other contract note: DT Shaun Rogers deal is for the veteran minimum, as
    expected: one year, $925,000.

            I have to laugh at the last line:

            "Why this extension was kept on the hush for this long and not leaked is
            unclear at this point."

            What is is about fans and media heads that feel they are "entitled" to know details about a player's contract negotiations??? This is how contract negotiations should be handled, privately.

                      Love it....Team player and goes about his business quietly.




                      You just KNOW Osi is going to let his mouth get the best of him sooner rather than later.

                        They extended the right guy.




                        It could very well be still that Osi is dealt as early as tonight. Could be a tool to move up in the second round.




                        Just a possibility. Not aprediction.

                        Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                          could see that happening, could also see the money saved by extending kiwi given to osi to shut him the hell up so he can retire a giant

                              I hope it's enough to get us to 40 or better, otherwise I would keep Osi and make him play out his contract.
