The situation between Osi Umenyiora and the N.Y Giants is starting to get argumentative once again. Sports scores

After GM Jerry Reese asserted the team had offered Umenyiora an extension 2 consecutive years, the defensive end replied by exclaiming he was offered “half” of the assured cash linebacker/defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka latterly received in an extension.

“Last year I was offered incentives,” Umenyiora announced. “This year they offered me in assured cash, Half what they just gave Kiwi warranted. HALF, I’m not making that up.”

“Then Jerry tells the world they offered me an extension and I turned it down,” he continued. “And I look like a greedy pig for turning it down, hilarious.”

Kiwanuka recently confirmed a 3-year deal extension through 2015 worth $21.75 million with $10.95 million in guaranteed money, according to reports. Football scores

Umenyiora, 30-year-old, is entering the final year of his agreement worth just below $4 million. He wants to stay with the team but has no wish to play under his current deal. He has for some time been looking for a new deal to replace the 7-year, $41 million agreement he signed in 2005. Umenyiora is looking for an extension in the neighborhood of the contracts recently signed by Philadelphia’s Trent Cole and Indianapolis ‘ Robert Mathis.

So obviously, if the Giants offered him half of Kiwanuka’s $10.95 million in guaranteed money, Umenyiora was never going to agree to the deal.

Umenyiora expounded last week that he did not believe the New York Giants would be capable of paying him the extension he’s seeking since they’ll have to finally take care of a few young players like Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz and Jason Pierre-Paul.

He advised that the Giants should see if they could trade him during the draft for maybe a pick in exchange. But the Giants did not deal him nor did they draft a defensive end. When asked if he considered dealing Umenyiora, Reese claimed. “All alternatives are open.”

“Our 1st choice regarding Osi is that he will play for the Giants and retire a Giant,” Reese claimed. “That is what we would like to happen. Osi has been offered an extension 2 consecutive years now so we would still like to get it to work. Hopefully it will work out.”

The 2 parts somehow made things work last year in spite of Umenyiora claiming that Reese had promised to redo his contract in an affidavit filed as an element of a legal action on the players’ behalf against the NFL during the lockout. Umenyiora sat out practice for the first 14 days of training camp while hoping a new offer. The team briefly authorized Umenyiora to look for a trade, seeking a 1st-round pick in return, before the defensive end eventually decided to go through minor knee surgery.

He ultimately turned down the Giants’ offer to add incentives to his agreement and had 12.5 sacks in 13 games — including the Giants’ Super Bowl postseason run.

“Would I’d like to (stay)? I believe it might be perfect,” Umenyiora said. “I think I would if circumstances may be worked out. But is that going to happen? I really don’t think so.”

Umenyiora said he was not sure what will occur this summer if he doesn’t have a new agreement by training camp.
