Giants Void DE Osi Umenyiora's 2013 Contract
It might have been a technicality but Osi Umenyiora's contract for the 2013 season was voided on Thursday when the two-time Pro Bowl defensive end remained on the Giants' roster several days after the Super Bowl, the Newark Star-Ledger reported.
The provision allowed the Giants to spread Umenyiora's $5 million cap hit from 2012 over two seasons, according to the Star-Ledger.
Although Umenyiora has expressed a desire to return to the Giants in 2013, he just as likely could be playing for the other tenants of MetLife Stadium next season. In an interview with the New York Post last week in New Orleans, Umenyiora indicated that he could fit in well with the Jets.
Umenyiora, a second-round pick by the Giants out of Troy in 2003, has 75 sacks in his 10-year NFL career.
“Rex Ryan, when I was coming out of college, he was with Baltimore at the time. He came down to work me out at Troy, he came to Atlanta, just me and him,” Umenyiora told The Post. “We had a pretty good time out there so I've always enjoyed him as a coach and as a person. That might be a good fit.”
