In response to Osi Umenyiora’s season-ending knee injury, former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan would actually consider coming back to the Giants! The 36-year old from Houston, Texas had retired during the offseason after helping the Giants defeat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, but would return to New York if he were offered an $8 million contract.
New York Giants Co-Owner Steve Tisch said, “Would I like Michael to be a New York Giant this season? Absolutely. Absolutely. Will he be? I have no idea. I don’t even want to put a percentage on it but things changed very quickly [Saturday] night and if one of the potential solutions is to reach out to Michael, worst-case, it’s certainly worth a phone call.”
Currently, Strahan is an NFL Studio Analyst for Fox Sports. Coach Tom Coughlin talked to Strahan about his new job. Coughlin commented, “The only thing I talked with Michael about was his new challenge, moving forward in his new assignment, and he was very excited about that.”
