Osi Umenyiora returns to practice

Most of the news that has emanated out of Giants training camp this summer hasn’t been very positive, but New York fans were finally given a reason to smile Monday afternoon.

Osi Umenyiora has returned.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News recently tweeted that the veteran defensive end is back at practice and currently working with the first team.

The 29-year-old from Troy State hasn’t been shy about letting the team, media and anyone else within earshot know how disgruntled he is with his current contract situation, going so far at one point to say he’d never talk to general manager Jerry Reese again.

While it remains to be seen whether or not the Giants will do anything financially to ease Umenyiora’s concerns, showing up to practice was a good first start for the two-time Pro Bowler.

Now lets see how long it lasts.
