A source tells the Daily News that the Giants have "reached out to Strahan Monday to see if there was any way they could lure him back for a 16th NFL season" now that defensive end Osi Umenyiora is out for the season. Most people think Strahan's return is unlikely--even Giants coach Tom Coughlin said, "His mentality was different last year. The last time I talked with Michael (two weeks ago in Albany) he had accepted his new challenge and was very happy about that." But new Jets quarterback Brett Favre thinks Strahan is the way to go, "If I were a Giant, I'd do whatever I could to get him out and have him back on my team."
