Osi Umenyiora’s contract issues with the Giants continue to fester with the with the two-time All-Pro defensive end calling out general manager Jerry Reese, according to the New York Daily News. Reese recently disclosed the Giants offered Umenyiora extensions in each of the past two seasons.

Umenyiora is accusing the team of trying to make him look bad in light of Mathias Kiwanuka’s three-year extension worth nearly $22 million, including $10.95 million guaranteed and a $8.5 million signing bonus.

In an email to the Daily News, Umenyiora writes:

“Last year I was offered incentives. This year they offered me in guaranteed money, HALF of what they just gave Kiwi guaranteed. HALF. I’m not making that up. Then Jerry tells the world they offered me an extension and I turned it down. And I look like a greedy pig for turning it down. Hilarious.”

The Super Bowl champs were unable to trade Umenyiora during the draft, and will once again have to deal with a contentious offseason from a key member of their defense.

Umenyiora’s salary for next season is $3.975 million.
