Osi Umenyiora Says He’ll Quit If He Doesn’t Start

Osi Umenyiora really didn't like getting benched last year. The defensive end says that losing his starting job last December led him to wonder whether the Giants even wanted him back next season, and that he'll sooner quit the NFL altogether than become a backup. He's under contract through 2012, but he really doesn't sound like he's in a good place right now: "I can't even think of a time when things were this bad during the off-season. You're supposed to be relaxing, but I can't relax because all I can think of is the things that took place last season, you understand?" [NYDN]
