Giants DE Osi Umenyiora Admits It's 'Time To Move On'
Osi Umenyiora has waited a long time to be an unrestricted free agent and he’s not going to waste that opportunity, even though that means he knows it’s “time to move on” from New York.
The 31-year-old defensive end admitted his time with the Giants is most likely over during an interview on ESPN Radio on Monday. He had been hinting at that for weeks, though he always left the door to a return open.
Now it appears that door is almost completely closed.
“I just feel fortunate to be able to play 10 years in New York in this city and that organization,” Umenyiora said on The Michael Kay Show on Monday. “It was a great run, a great ride. I think now is probably time to move on.”
He has long desired to test the market to see what he’s worth.
“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.”
