Giants vet may hold out over contract
Michael Strahan will arrive on time this afternoon at Giants training camp -- only if he likes what he hears this morning. The Pro Bowl defensive end is unhappy with his contract and is still contemplating a holdout, according to someone who speaks to Giants management on a regular basis. The person, who requested anonymity because the situation has not been resolved yet, said the 15-year veteran wants to speak to general manager Jerry Reese before making a final decision. It's not likely, however, that Strahan will hear anything different from the Giants, who declined his request for a new contract in March.

Strahan has had a great career but he is clearly on the back nine as it were, actually closer to the clubhouse than he'd probably admit. 15 seasons and 200 games played, he's missed most of the last 3 years to injury and is no longer the best DE in the league. He wants more money from the Giants but if he's lucky will get a year or two extension at around the league average.
