Good-Spirited Drama Along the Giants DL

Posted on: June 17, 2010 12:42 pm

In a follow up to the Osi Umenyiora story from yesterday, Mathias Kiwanuka spoke about the situation at the right defensive end position.

"That's my goal and that's where my focus is,” Kiwanuka said of keeping his starting job. “There's no other thought in my mind "Once I get it, I have to keep it."

"We can maintain a friendly competition because that's where we need everybody's mind to be. This is the NFL. There are battles at every position up and down the line."

Umenyiora and Kiwanuka (who, by the way, also has a contract situation), won’t be competing for the same spot on third down, apparently. Yesterday the Giants revealed a four-man nickel front consisting of first-round rookie Jason Pierre-Paul and Kiwanuka as the ends, and Justin Tuck and Umenyiora as the tackles. Tuck is as versatile as any player in the game and has the strength and technique to be dominant inside. Umenyiora has generally been a space player though could give guards fits with his initial quickness.
