Giants | Osi Umenyiora got deal done without agent

New York Giants DL Osi Umenyiora had to temporarily fire his agent to get a restructured deal completed, and sign what that agent had told him was "a substandard deal." However, he said it was worth it to stop a contract squabble from hovering over his head. Umenyiora denied that he was asked by the team to fire his agent in order to get the deal done. Instead, he said Tony Agnone - whom Umenyiora said he will eventually rehire - stepped out of the way because "he felt like I was worth more than that."
