  • Mara Won't Rule Out Osi Umenyiora's Return To Giants

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...turn-to-giants

    Excerpt: "Has Osi Umenyiora played his final game as a member of the New York Giants? Team co-owner John Mara isn't willing to say so. At least publicly.

    "I don't know about that," Mara said, according to ESPNNewYork.com. "We'll see what happens. I would love to have him back. He's been a great player for us. He's a great guy. He's been a huge part of our two Super Bowl wins, but there are economic considerations and we'll just have to see what happens."

    After the Giants' season ended, Umenyiora told a New York radio station he believed it was "time to move on."
    "I've earned the right to be a free agent," Umenyiora said. "It's been 10 years. I signed a seven-year deal, and they made me play out all seven of those years. If they wanted me back, I think something would have been done before now." Read more...

        i believe Osi would have a better season in 2013 on this squad, if he were to re-sign, than Tuck will. I don't have faith in Tuck!

          There are many good DEs in this year's draft, If Osi returns would we still draft a DE?

            Too many so called fans Hating on Osi.. He only came off the bench and had just as many sacks as JPP.. We need the depth if he comes at a good price.

              I told you, Jerry Reese and this organiation LOVE Osi.

              I hope he's back at the right price. He's a phenomenal player. Osi, JPP and a motivated Tuck with some improved DT play. We can do some things...

                If he's willing to come back on a back-up level contract, he'll be a great signing. If he is still demanding top 10 DE $$, he should walk.

                  Sigh* " I forsee 10 pages of anger/hate in this thread." Guess I will try for the last time ey?
                  To answer your Question Yes they would.
                  The question falls this way Do you sign a player (Osi) to his final contract whose injuries have limited him less than sign a player a year later who's injuries have dramatically affected his play and drive? (Tuck)

                  If anyone on here is Okay with tuck going forward as the leader of that unit to coach up the younger guys then I want to know what your smoking, so I can try it in 17 years.

                  If we are to retain one of them I would rather Osi than tuck cause Tuck started all season and did nothing Osi rotated in on certain down and distances and still did better. I understand whoever you are are going to rebuttal with "Osi can't play the run rah! rah!" which is fine cause if we had an instinctual Sam or a faster Mike the runs to Osi side would be picked up. {See. carolina Linebacking unit attack the outside runs, Keuchly especially.}

                      I think the writing is on the wall as far as Osi goes. Still, I'm glad that John Mara left the door open as you never know what could happen.

                      I'll tell you one thing, I sure am glad we picked up JPP two years ago. Without him the future of our defense would be noticeably bleaker.

                        Osi could surprise everyone an take a very organization friendly discounted long term contract. He has said before he wants to retire here but its a business and it takes two to come to terms. If reese is low balling then of course he walks but If it reasonable I think he would be inclined to stay.
                        Im still trying to find the article where osi stated "He is looking for Top 5 DE money."

                          Yes....lets all ignore the fact that A: Osi DIDN'T "play out the 7 year contract" without getting a bump last season and B: Osi doesn't WANT to be a Giant anymore....ie.."I think I've earned the right to be a free agent....."

                          Osi's time as a Giant is over....time to move on. Players come and go,,,even the good ones. Tuck should go as well.

                          You people obsessed with the "hater" talk need to grow up.
                          I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

                            Lets ignore the fact that Osi said he wants to retire a giant.
                            Lets also Ignore the fact that Reese was also unfair in the way he handled that situation

                            Great players help this team win games, which gets them to the playoffs and hopefully the super bowl. common sense dictates you keep the players that can help you win and to the people that are hating on a player because of what he has said off the field or against the GM and ignore the body of work plus what that player can still bring to the table, need to grow up as well.

                              You can't dispute the fact that he has earned the right to be a free agent. And his statements about it being time to move on, probably have a lot to do with the fact that he knows the Giants probably won't spend the money that he is looking for. But there is not a doubt in my mind that if the Giants made a competetive offer, that this is where he would want to be.

                              But with that being said, I am a huge Osi fan, but just don't see how we can go into next year with the same DE's as this year and expect a better performance. I don't buy Tuck's "motivation" comments for one second. And if they were both free agents I would want Osi over Tuck all day. But since Tuck isn't going anywhere, I think sadly we need to part ways with Osi, and see who can step up, either currently on the roster or through the draft.
