OSI UMENYIORA RESTRUCTURED HIS CONTRACT WITH GIANTS
Tue, 05 Jun 2012 03:48 AM EDT

Defensive end Osi Umenyiora and the N.Y Giants finally have reached an agreement on a restructured deal.

The resolution ends years of disappointment for Umenyiora and on occasions argumentative agreement talks with the Giants. The defensive end long has attempted to upgrade his agreement without much victory till now. Conditions of the restructured deal weren’t declared by the team. Sports scores

A source informed of details of the agreement, reported the agreement is for just 2012, simply a restructuring of the last year of Umenyiora’s contract. The source also said the team would not use the franchise tag on the defensive end in the spring. Another source who had been informed of the talks recounted the N.Y Giants had made a total offer — base salary and bonuses — in the $7 million to $7.5 million range.

“This gives me peace of mind, absolutely,” he said. “We just resolved a situation. It really was influencing me in a bad way, since I did not like all of the negativity that was surrounding the entire situation. I couldn’t stand it, because if you know me, you know I’m not that type of person. I’m just happy all that is over with and I may be there. I can play out this deal, I can play this year and I could play my heart out.”

Umenyiora was entering the final year of a 7-year, $41 million deal he signed in 2005. He was scheduled to make just less than $4 million this season.

“I appreciate Osi’s patience and effort thru this process,” GM Jerry Reese expounded in a press release. “We talked it out, and it is sensible for everyone involved. We are extraordinarily pleased, excited and looking forward to seeing number 72 on the field.”

Umenyiora’s deal situation hit a boiling point last summer when he announced in a sworn affidavit in the players’ legal case against the NFL during the lockout that Reese had told him the defensive end would be rewarded with a new contract if he maintained a high level of play.

Once the lockout finished, Umenyiora sat out much of training camp last summer in hopes of landing a new deal. The Giants briefly gave Umenyiora and Agnone a chance to hunt for a trade before rescinding the authorization when they could not find a team content to part with a 1st-round pick.

Umenyiora finished his camp holdout but settled on minor knee surgery after a few practices. He returned and played in 9 regular-season games, collecting 9 sacks. He added 3½ sacks in the Giants’ postseason run to the Super Bowl.

Umenyiora sat out the first 2 weeks of voluntary OTAs this offseason but announces he’ll be back on the field with his colleagues at the next OTA.

“It was definitely frustrating [sitting out team OTAs],” Umenyiora added. “But hearing some of the things they revealed, whether it was [Mathias Kiwanuka] or [Justin] Tuck or JPP [Jason Pierre-Paul] or Antrel — hearing how they supported me, it made me want to return far more and be around them.”
