Umenyiora and Giants remain at contract impasse

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Contract talks between Osi Umenyiora and the New York Giants remained deadlocked, the two-time Pro Bowl defensive end has told The Associated Press.

In a brief email on Thursday, the former Auburn High Tiger told The AP there has been no real progress in the talks.

A couple of hours after the email, Giants general manager Jerry Reese offered a little hope by saying he expected to have the 29-year-old veteran back in the fold for this season.

Umenyiora has not practiced since training camp opened in late July because he is unhappy with his contract. He maintains Reese told him after last season that the team would rework the deal, which was to pay the nine-year veteran $7.1 million over the next two seasons.
