Giants | Osi Umenyiora says promises broken

New York Giants DL Osi Umenyiora will file an affadavit in federal court next month as part of the players' antitrust suite against the NFL spelling out why he has wanted out of New York. Umenyiora states general manager Jerry Reese did not follow through on promises to renegotiate his contract. "In early April 2008, approximately two weeks before the start of the New York Giants offseason conditioning program, I, Osi Umenyiora, had a meeting with the general manager of the New York Giants, Mr. Jerry Reese," Umenyiora testified this past April. "After about an hour of discussing my current contract, as well as the contracts of other defensive ends currently playing in the National Football League, Mr. Reese told me that two years from the start of the 2008 league year, if I was currently playing at a high level, we'd either renegotiate my current contract so that it would be equal to that of the top five defensive ends playing or I would be traded to a team that would do that."
