New York Sports-Kings:
According to NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal, You may see some big changes this off-season for the New York Giants. Coming off a blow-out loss to the struggling Ravens, Rosenthal reports that the Giants may be ready to cut ties with two if their high profile pass rushers.
Per Rosenthal of NFL.com:
“[Osi] Umenyiora and Tuck top the list of potential big names that could be let go.”
Tuck has had back to back sub-par seasons, posting five sacks last year and just three through week 17 of this season. Tuck is due $4.5 million next year, which is the final year of his five-year deal.
Osi Umenyiora restructured his contract in the off-season and the last year of his contract is voidable. He told reporters Monday that “It’s a high probability” that he won’t be back with the Giants next season.
After leading the division for most of the season, the Giants find themselves on the outside looking in to compete in the playoffs. We may see a major shakeup this off-season with the Giants.
The post Umenyiora, Tuck finished with the Giants? appeared first on New York Sports Kings.
