New York Giants v San Francisco 49ers

Osi Umenyiora is an accomplished veteran pass-rusher with 75 sacks and two Super Bowl rings to his name through 10 NFL seasons, and the 31-year-old will probably be paid handsomely when the free agent market opens up next week.

But it’s no secret that Umenyiora’s role is that of a two-down player who struggles against the run and that will also surely factor into the size of his next contract, something the soon to be ex-Giant was probably thinking about when he sent this tweet.

The easy answer is that if Umenyiora is correct with his percentages, a great pass rusher who is less effective against the run would still be rendered almost useless on 40 per cent of plays, something that seems to be the mark of a “situational” player.
