New York (NFL/Newsfeed) – Disgruntled New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora says he isn’t pleased that the team provided him only “half” the guaranteed funds it not too long ago gave to fellow defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka.
“They provided an extension — guaranteeing half of what they just gave ‘Kiwi’ assured,” Umenyiora wrote to The Star-Ledger on Sunday. “And I’m a greedy pig for turning down half of what they just gave ‘Kiwi.’ Lol.”
Kiwanuka received a three-year extension from the Giants last week that included $ ten.95 million in assured funds, according to the Star-Ledger. Giants general manager Jerry Reese said at the NFL draft on Saturday that the team has provided Umenyiora two contract extensions in the least two years. Reese added that he desires Umenyiora to retire a Giant, but that trading the player — who is entering the final year of his seven-year deal — remains an choice.
Contract drama is getting to be an annual offseason rite for Umenyiora, who held out for the duration of instruction camp last summer time. Regardless of playing in only nine standard season games in 2011 due to preseason knee surgery, Umenyiora still recorded nine sacks and earned his second Super Bowl ring.
