It’s about time! Even though DE Osi Umenyiora is still angry about his contract situation, he’ll be showing up to practice this afternoon and plans to participate.
via ESPN NY:
Osi Umenyiora will practice today for the first time in camp.
Practice today and this week, with exception of Thursday which is an off day, will be from 1:30-3:30 p.m. However because of rain, today’s practice will be indoors and closed to the public.
Osi better have his game face on because second year DE Jason Pierre-Paul looked incredible in his starting role Saturday night. Let me just say this, I don’t think Osi would have recorded 2 sacks and several more pressures (1 ended in a pick 6) in the same amount of snaps. The writing is on the wall — JPP could very well outplay Osi for his starting role and his future contract leverage with any team if that happens. If that doesn’t light a fire, I don’t know what will.
Time to get to work Osi!
