New York Giants News And Notes: Osi Umenyiora, Much More

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let's peruse the Inter-Google and see what we can come up with for you this morning.

Does Umenyiora fit in Giants' long-term vision? - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
Umenyiora has made no secret of his unhappiness over his contract or his desire to be paid like a top five defensive end, but that's unlikely to happen with the Giants, who have reduced Umenyiora to a pass-rushing specialist in order to get second-year man Jason Pierre-Paul on the field more.

"Osi is under contract, but we'll discuss everything as a staff and we'll discuss all issues that could possibly come up for us," Reese said.

Still with Umenyiora entering the final year of his contract and fellow defensive end Justin Tuck potentially facing shoulder surgery, the Giants' defensive ends have taken quite a physical pounding to where this position is almost certain to be a need come the draft in April.

NFL.com news: Questions surround defensive linemen entering combine
The flurry of offensive production during the regular season appeared to de-emphasize the importance of defensive football in the minds of many, but the New York Giants' unexpected title run will lead some franchises to focus once again on that side of the ball, particularly with regard to the defensive line.

Teams will look to replicate the Giants' depth and talent along the defensive front, so their defensive coordinators can have an effective counter to the sophisticated passing games currently dominating the NFL. There are several potential difference-makers in this year's class of pass rushers, but they all have weaknesses, and none are deemed "can't miss" prospects.
