Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul Says Team Needs To Keep Osi Umenyiora

New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul says the Giants need to keep Osi Umenyiora on the team once his contract is up after the 2012-13 season, according to the New York Post.

“I think it’s very important,” Pierre-Paul told The Post. “Give him what he wants, man.

“That’s a great guy and trust me, a guy like that on your team, he’s a playmaker,” Pierre-Paul said during an appearance at Macy’s in Manhattan last night. “Just us three defensive ends, we’ve got a couple more on the line, but I feel like we’re all on there together, it’s unstoppable. Who’s going to stop us? We’ve got the best defensive line in the country, and everybody sees that. So bring him back.”

Umenyiora and the Giants had contract issues in the past. In fact, the defensive end did not report on the opening day of the Giants' training camp because he claimed that general manager Jerry Reese promised to renegotiate his contract after the 2010 season, but failed to do so.  As a result the Giants placed him on Reserve Report.

Limited most of the 2011-12 season due to a knee injury, Umenyiora totaled 25 tackles, two forced fumbles, and nine sacks through five games including the Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots.
