INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Giants general manager Jerry Reese says he’s unsure whether Osi Umenyiora would take less money to finish his career in New York.

Instead, Reese believes the recent comments to Umenyiora may have been “taken out of context.”

Reese says he understands the motivation behind Umenyiora’s sentiment: He wants to retire having played for only one team.

But the two have not spoken since the Super Bowl parade and Reese says he wouldn’t call the decision about a long-term deal a “pressing matter.” He expects to meet with Umenyiora’s agent soon.

The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end was a training camp holdout last summer. Umenyiora finished with nine sacks in nine games in 2011 and is slated to earn $3.975 million next season, the final year of a seven-year deal.
