Monday, August 25, 2008. (AP) -- The New York Giants are interested in luring Michael Strahan out of retirement after losing Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora to a season-ending knee injury Saturday night.
The Super Bowl champions have contacted the seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end to see if he is interested in ending a brief retirement, a person familiar with the discussions told The Associated Press on Monday.
The person requested anonymity because the talks were in the early stages, and there is no guarantee that the 36-year-old Strahan wants to return.
Tony Agnone, Strahan's agent, did not return messages left at his office and on his cell phone by The Associated Press on Monday.
