NY Giants defensive end says he'd rather quit than be a backup next season By Mike Garafolo/The Star-Ledger February 03, 2010, 5:44PM "I’m not going to be a back up player, I can promise you that," Umenyiora said. "I’ll stop playing football before I do that ever again. This has been just the worst off-season of my entire life. 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. So for me, it’s not something that I’m going to do. And if I’m asked to come back there and do that then I’ll just stop playing football." "If it doesn't get resolved, you can bet Umenyiora will go the Shockey route and push hard for a trade. To whom? Well, that remains to be seen, but I'll tell you right now to keep the Rams (with former Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo as their coach) at the top of that list."
