Boy, that didnt take long.The confetti from the victory parade has just been swept up and some Giants are already talking about wanting to get paid.Actually, in one case, one Giant lobbied for more money for his teammate. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said that the team should take care of Osi Umenyiora, who has been in a contract squabble with management for a couple of years now.Give him what he wants, man, said Pierre-Paul, who plays the same position as Umenyiora.It will be interesting to see how New York handles the contract of Umenyiora, who is one of the leagues best pass-rushing ends. He turned 30 in November and it remains to be seen if they will tear up his deal, which has a year and 3.975 million left on it, and give him a new one. Keep in mind that Pierre-Paul will be due for a substantial raise when his rookie deal is up in two years.Wide receiver Victor Cruz, who set a franchise record with 1,536 receiving yards, spoke for himself. He made no bones about it saying, I feel like I deserve to be paid more money.He made 450,000 in 2011 and is slated to make 490,000 this season. In 2013 he will be a restricted free agent.
