Osi Umenyiora told ESPN New York 98.7 that he's ready to move on from the New York Giants. “Now is probably time to move on.”  “I feel fortunate to be able to play 10 years in New York,” Umenyiora said on The Michael Kay Show. “It was a great run. I think now is probably time to move on.”  Umenyiora is wanting a new contract and a starting position with another team. He had 43 tackles, six sacks and two forced fumbles in 16 games, which he only started four. “There’s really not much left for me to accomplish here in New York,” Umenyiora said of the timing of moving on to another team. “Look at things that have been done here, what is there that is to be done that I haven’t done?  “We won a championship twice,” he continued. “I think I’ve been a Pro Bowl player. Everything has pretty much gone better than I could have imagined in New York. So if there is a time to leave, it probably would be now but there is no telling what would happen.” “I’ve earned the right to be a free agent,” Umenyiora said. “It’s been 10 years. I signed a seven-year deal and they made me play out all seven of those years. If they (the Giants) wanted me back, I think something would have been done before now.” Photo Credit

  • I have to agree with Osi this time, his play has fallen way off and he can't seem to stay healthy. Thanks for the memories and good luck Osi.
