Mara on Osi: 'Love to have him back'

1/24/2013

John Mara spoke to reporters Thursday for the first time about the Giants' failure to make the playoffs.

The Giants co-owner said he hasn't "quite gotten over" his team's failed title defense. He also touched on a few other subjects, including Osi Umenyiora's future.

The defensive end has made it no secret that he wants a new contract and a starting position and that he thinks it is time to move on.

"I don't know about that," Mara said when asked if Umenyiora has played his final game as a Giant. "We'll see what happens. I would love to have him back. He's been a great player for us. He's a great guy. He's been a huge part of our two Super Bowl wins, but there are economic considerations and we'll just have to see what happens."
