Umenyiora Happy With Contract, Playing Situation

The annual contract drama that surrounded Osi Umenyiora before the Giants defensive end signed a restructured contract Friday appeared well in the past during his first field session of Monday’s organized team activity.

He took drills with his defensive linemates Justin Tuck, Jason Pierre-Paul, and the others, looking fit and ready.

After that, he told the gathered media that he held no ill will toward general manager Jerry Reese for having to settle for a one-year salary jump to $7 million, after which he will become eligible for unrestricted free agency should the Giants not give him the franchise tag.

“No hard feelings,” Umenyiora said. “It’s a business. Whatever they say about the NFL, is true. It’s a business, so I know where they were coming from.”
