This might not be news to many, but Osi Umenyiora is unhappy with the Giants. Again. Osi has been upset with the organization for seemingly forever, over being a situational player behind Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul, as well as not being given a long term contract extension. There have been some trade rumblings in the past, but for the most part, Osi has just sucked it and up and played anyway and was a big part of the Giants’ 2nd Super Bowl title in 5 seasons last season.

Heading into the final year of a 7 year deal, Osi is still upset. To show this, he is skipping all of the Giants voluntary OTAs. There has been some talk this offseason of the Giants moving him, but most of that talk has died down since the draft. More likely than not, Osi will complain all offseason again and then return to the Giants to play his situational role and make 3.925 million in the final year of a 7 year, 41 million dollar deal. After the offseason, however, he’s free to go wherever he wants and I’d be very surprised if he remained in New York after all of this.
