Osi Umenyiora to sign one-day contract to retire with Giants
Monday August 24th, 2015

 The New York Giants will sign former defensive end Osi Umenyiora to a one-day contract so that he can retire as a member of the team, the Giants announced on Monday. 

Umenyiora, who played nine seasons with the Giants before spending two years with the Atlanta Falcons, has said this off-season that he would like to retire as a Giant. 

The Giants announced that Umenyiora, 33, will officially retire and address the media on Wednesday at 12:15 p.m. ET.  

The Giants drafted Umenyiora in the second round of the 2003 NFL draft. He recorded 75 sacks in 129 games with the Giants, ranking him fourth in team history. 

He will retire with 85 total career sacks and two Super Bowl rings, which he won with the Giants. Umenyiora participated in two Pro Bowls and appeared on the first-team All Pro team in 2005. That season, he led the NFL in sacks with 14.5 in 16 games.
