Osi Umenyiora wants to clear the air about his back and forth comments on his future with the Giants, saying “It would be my preference to definitely come back and finish my career with the New York Giants, the team I’ve been with.’’
He also mentioned the Falcons and Jets as possible destinations.
"There’s a couple of teams my agent told me he will be contacting at a later time," he told The New York Post. “I maintained to him my preference is to return to the Giants.’’
When asked about the Falcons, he said “That’s one of the teams that might be interested but my agent hasn’t talked to them yet.’’
“Rex Ryan, when I was coming out of college he was with Baltimore at the time and he came down to work me out at Troy, he came to Atlanta, just me and him. We had a pretty good time out there so I’ve always enjoyed him as a coach and as a person. That might be a good fit. Hopefully it will be with the Giants.’’
