EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Michael Strahan will not come out
of retirement to help out the New York Giants. The seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end has told FoxSports.com he will stay retired and not return to the Giants to replace Osi Umenyiora who is out for the season with a knee injury.
Strahan says he considered an 8-million-dollar offer to rejoin
the team for a 16th season for about 24 hours but decided he likes
his life without football. He says he had the toughest night of his
life pondering a number of scenarios before opting to stay retired. Strahan recently signed a 2-million-dollar contract to work for
Fox Sports on its Sunday NFL program.
