Now that the Giants now that DE Osi Umenyiora is going to miss the entire season, the focus of who is going to take his place already seems to be turning to recently retired future Hall of Famer Michael Strahan. As soon as it was announced that Osi was gone, the rumor mill began popping up with what it might take to get Strahan back in the fold for another season.
What it may take is nothing more than a boatload of cash to get his presence back on the field. Today’s New York Daily News says that the asking price to get Strahan back would be $8 million. The paper also says that the Giants would have to make a “sincere” effort to get him to return. The source told the paper that Strahan coming back would not be “out of the question.”
Strahan said to NFL Network’s Adam Schefter that the Giants have yet to contact him, but that he’s enjoying his retired life “right now.” In other words, if the price is right, Strahan could be had for one more go around, and the Giants may just be exploring their options in that area.
