New York Giants and Michael Strahan to Meet: The Daily News is reporting that DE Michael Strahan plans to meet with General Manager Jerry Reese within the next few days to discuss Strahan’s future with the Giants. The paper says that it is possible that the talks will include renegotiating or extending Strahan’s current contract. Apparently, Strahan is looking for more money.

Strahan has two years left on his current contract and is set to make $4 million in salary in both 2007 and 2008. Strahan will turn 36 in 2007 and sources have told The Daily News that Strahan wants to know how much longer the Giants want and expect him to play.

Given his age and the fact that he finished two of the past three seasons on Injured Reserve, The Daily News says the Giants are not interested in extending Strahan’s contract. The paper does say the team is open to “creative restructuring” and possibly adding more money to Strahan’s remaining contract. The Daily News reports that the Giants are approximately $20 million under the 2007 NFL salary cap.

The Daily News says that barring a major setback in his recovery from his serious foot injury, Strahan is not in danger of being cut or traded. Head Coach Tom Coughlin stated recently that Strahan’s rehab was progressing well and that he will not need surgery.

New York Giants Still Waiting on Shaun O’Hara: According to The Daily News, soon-to-be unrestricted free agent OC Shaun O’Hara is still considering the Giants’ final, “take-it-or-leave-it” 6-year, $21.6 million contract offer. Free agency begins on Friday and the paper says that it is possible that O’Hara’s agents will attempt to re-open contract talks before then.

TE Visanthe Shiancoe Gone?: The Daily News is reporting that the Giants are not expected to re-sign soon-to-be unrestricted free agent TE Visanthe Shiancoe.
