Giants DE Owa Odighizuwa's absence from training camp is excused because of personal reasons, head coach Ben McAdoo said on Tuesday.
Odighizuwa, who appeared to be hinting about retirement back on April 3, had attended the Giants' offseason workouts in mid-April.
On April 3, he 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."
