Report: Osi Umenyiora won't show for physical
Pay me or trade me (to someone that will pay me).
That’s the message Osi Umenyiora has sent out as the New York Giants prepare to head to training camp today.
The defensive end will not report for his physical at 9 a.m., according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network. It’s as has been expected for some time. Umenyiora believes that general manager Jerry Reese has not been a man of his word when it comes to delivering a new contract.
However, La Canfora reports Umenyiora could show up later in the day for team meetings that begin at 1 p.m. Unless he’s showing up to sign some new paper, we’d be a little surprised if he’s in camp right away. But you never know.
