Umenyiora threatens to quit
Defensive end Osi Umenyiora, who lost his starting job with the New York Giants late in the season, said during a radio interview that he will quit football rather than be a backup next season.
"I'm not going to be a back up player, I can promise you that," Umenyiora said on WFAN, according to an account of the interview in the New York Daily News.
"I'll stop playing football before I do that ever again. This has been just the worst offseason of my entire life. I can't even think of a time when things were this bad during the offseason. You're supposed to be relaxing, but I can't relax because all I can think of is the things that took place last season, you understand? So for me it's not something that I'm going to do. If I'm asked to come back there and do that then I'll just stop playing football."
