Osi Will Return To Giants Practice Today


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!
