Osi Umenyiora Excited to See Old New York Giants Teammates; Doesn’t Deny Missing Team

There's an old saying; the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Since leaving the New York Giants after the 2012 season, Osi Umenyiora has found that out the hard way.

Umenyiora once turned down a three-year extension to stay with the Giants in hopes of finding potential big money on the free agent market as a big-time pass rusher, but instead, settled for a two-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons who have struggled since his arrival.

Umenyiora didn't exactly end his relationship with the Giants on the highest of notes, especially when it came to his contract demands and made it publicly known that he wasn't happy with it and even called out Jerry Reese for leading him on in regards to a potential extension that was promised to him, but never happened. Umenyiora got his deal re-worked and re-structured in 2012 which allowed him to leave after that year and for the most part, kept him happy, but ultimately, it meant he was headed for the door.

Odell Beckhamn Jr. Excited, Anxious to Get on Field for New York Giants; Preparing for Falcons

This season is beginning to produce some of the best offensive production the Giants have seen in a long time. Eli Manning's passing game has drastically improved since the first two weeks of the season and the offense has been seeing more touchdowns rather than field goals in their scoring. But still, many Giants fans are awaiting the arrival of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., the Giants first-round selection out of LSU.

Beckham has sat out all of the preseason and the first four games of the regular season due to a nagging hamstring injury. And many, even Beckham himself, have been eyeing his healthy arrival as soon as this Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. If so, Beckham will be the No. 3 receiver on New York's receiving corps. next to Victor Cruz and, as Beckham would put it, "Big Brother Rueben" Randle.

“(I) definitely want to, but at the end of the day, that’s not really my decision,” Beckham said. “I want to play as soon as possible, but it’s not really all the way up to me.”

New York Giants’ Antrel Rolle Guarantees He’ll Get a Pick-Six During 2014 Season

The New York Giants defense, especially the secondary, is playing with an all-time high in confidence right now.

It would make sense since they lead the NFL in interceptions (with 7) after this past week when they got to Kirk Cousins four times in their 45-14 domination of the Washington Redskins this past Thursday night. Despite the loss of Walter Thurmond III due to a season-ending torn pectoral muscle, the Giants secondary is making a case to be one of the best in the league.

Giants starting safety and captain Antrel Rolle has two of the team's interceptions, both of which came with big returns, but no touchdown as a result, but as he told WFAN in a radio interview on Tuesday, he thinks he'll return one to the house in the 2014 season.

"I guarantee you, before the season is over, that I will get a pick-six," he said, going as far as to wager a steak dinner with the hosts of the talk show.

Rolle does have four pick-six interceptions in his career; all of which came when he played with the Arizona Cardinals (three in 2007, one in 2008), so if he does record one with the Giants in 2014, it will be the first one in the five seasons he records a pick-six.

New York Giants Release WR Mario Manningham from Injured Reserve on Tuesday

The New York Giants were hoping to bring back the magic from two years ago when they signed Mario Manningham in the offseason.

Unfortunately, Manningham's injuries never allowed him to even get back on the field as he was placed on season-ending injured reserve before the regular season even kicked off. On Tuesday, the Giants officially released Manningham from injured reserve, as per Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports.

Manningham was one of the heroes from Super Bowl XLVI when he made the sideline catch in the Giants final drive that allowed them to score the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter in the 21-17 win over the New England Patriots. After the 2011 season, Manningham left to sign with the San Francisco 49ers, but ran into knee troubles; tearing his ACL and PCL during the 2012 season which took him out for the team's championship run to the Super Bowl and held him out for most of the 2013 season.
