At least according to GM Jerry Reese, who spent some time on Sirius Radio at the owners meeting. Reese said he fully expects Osi Umenyiora to be a major part of the team in 2010 despite Umenyiora's offseason grousing.
“Well, you know, if you guys can remember, when I first got hired as GM, Michael Strahan came in and said ‘You know what? I’m not playing,’” Reese said. “So I’ve been through that from the very beginning. I call it ‘offseason chatter.’ Almost every team there’s one or two players you hear some chatter in that respect.
“Osi and I had some good conversations. I expect Osi to be back and be a huge part of what we’re doing.”
