New York Giants defensive lineman Osi Umenyiora said
yesterday that “now is probably the time to move on,” reports Ohm Youngmisuk of
ESPN New York.
The defensive end said during his weekly spot on ESPN New
York 98.7 that “now is probably time to move on.”
“I feel fortunate to
be able to play 10 years in New York,” he said on The Michael Kay Show. “It was
a great run. I think now is probably time to move on.”
While Umenyiora left the door open for a possible return to
the Giants, he said that if the team wanted him back he thinks “something would
have been done before now.” The defensive lineman also said that he’s earned
the right to become a free agent in the NFL. He’ll be seeking a lucrative new
contract and an opportunity to start, according to Youngmisuk.
Umenyiora, 31, finished the 2012 season with 43 tackles, six
sacks and two forced fumbles.
