Turns out that Osi Umenyiora was just passing through to say hi. His visit with the New York Jets on Wednesday, which prompted headlines of a possible return to the New York area, was simply a "social call," general manager Mike Maccagnan explained Thursday.

NFL Free Agency: Osi Umenyiora might become a Jet?

Seriously? This would be weird. How weird would it be if Osi Umenyiora continued his NFL career playing home games at MetLife Stadium ... as a member of the New York Jets? That, apparently, is a possibility as the former New York Giants defensive end reportedly met with Jets officials in Florham Park on Wednesday. Umenyiora, 33, spent the last two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons after nine years with the Giants.
