    NFL DRAFT ENDS; OSI UMENYIORA REMAINS WITH GIANTS; UNDRAFTED FREE AGENTS

    "The NFL Draft came and went.
    And Osi Umenyiora remains a Giant.



    “All options are open with respect to that,” general manager Jerry Reese said
    when asked if any deals had been discussed. “Our first choice with respect to
    Osi is he plays for the Giants and retires a Giant.”




    Reading between the lines of Reese’s non-denial/non-confirmation, it sounds
    like the Giants at least listened to, or explored, offers for Umenyiora. Perhaps
    there were some contingencies involved, such as whether the Giants or another
    team would draft a pass rusher.




    But nothing materialized and the standoff will continue. Reese said Umenyiora
    was offered a new contract both last year and this offseason. Umenyiora has
    turned down all offers.




    “We’d still like to make it work,” Reese said. “But all of our options are
    always open.”

    The Giants have begun the process of signing undrafted free agents. DE Matt
    Broha (Lousiana Tech), FB Joe Martinek (Rutgers), WR David Douglas (Arizona), WR
    Julian Talley (UMass and Winslow HS), DE Adewale Ojomo (Miami), and S Janzen
    Jackson (McNeese State) will sign with the team. Both came
    in for pre-draft visits
    .
