There’s been a lot of talk regarding the possibility that Giants DE Osi Umenyiora could be playing elsewhere in the past few years, but it looks like there’s a good chance that he’ll finish out his current contract in New York.
Head coach Tom Coughlin believes that Umeyiora will definitely be back with the team next season.
“I’m not thinking of anything else,” said Coughlin regarding Osi being back with the Giants, per Bart Hubbuch.
Last we heard, both the Giants and Umenyiora were open to a possible contract extension. Umenyiora, 31, will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2012 season so there could be some talk of an extension in the coming months, but it’s probably a safer bet that they’ll try to work something out during the offseason.
