Giants DE Owa Odighizuwa was in attendance on Thursday as the Giants began training camp.
Odighizuwa, who appeared to be hinting about retirement back on April 3, had attended the Giants' offseason workouts in mid-April but did not attend minicamp -- which head coach Ben McAdoo said was an excused absence.
On April 3, Odighizuwa had tweeed what appeared to be a farewell statement. He wrote "At the point and time I believe it's in my best interest to take sometime to get away from the game." He even apologized for announcing that on Twitter, but added "this is the best platform to express something of the things that has been on my mind for a while."
The next day, Odighizuwa seemed to backtrack a little when he tweeted how he's "grateful to be a part of BIG BLUE." Two days later, Giants co-owner John Mara said that Odighizuwa was "still on the team," but otherwise declined comment. A team source indicated only that Odighizuwa was having some "personal" issues.
