comments about Mathias Kiwanuka


New York Giants DE Mathias Kiwanuka had his contract restructured to accommodate the signing of DB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Kiwanuka sees his base salary decrease from $4.38 million to $1.5 million (with a $700,000 roster bonus and $125,000 worth of incentives) and the team nets just over $2 million in cap space.

New York Giants DE Mathias Kiwanuka said there is tension between the offense and defense of the team during Week 15. 'In the heat of the game, things need to be said if somebody's not getting the job done,' Kiwanuka said. 'Somebody needs to step up and tell them what is going on so we can get out of that fight with a win.'

The New York Giants usually use a strict 4-3 defensive alignment, but they have used some 3-4 formations or hybrid looks that ask their defensive ends to stand up and either play outside linebacker or at least look as though they might. The idea is to confuse the opposing offense and possibly to be in better position to react to run-heavy, read-option offenses like the Washington Redskins have, and perhaps the Philadelphia Eagles will use. DE Mathias Kiwanuka played linebacker last season before moving back to defensive end, and he is someone who can fit into this hybrid system nicely.

New York Giants DE Mathias Kiwanuka is happy to be back at his natural position, defensive end, on a full-time basis. Kiwanuka is working as the starting right defensive end spot while DE Jason Pierre-Paul (back) recovers from surgery. 'It was a move I was looking forward to. I had a feeling it was coming,' Kiwanuka said.

New York Giants defensive line coach Robert Nunn said DE Mathias Kiwanuka has looked very good during organized team activities. 'Kiwi is off to a great start,' Nunn said. 'We will be able, I think, to get him more focused on staying at defensive end. He is really doing a good job so far managing it. Moving him around a little bit, at both sides of defensive end. We really like where he is from the mental standpoint and the way he has approached it in the offseason. He looks solid right now.'

New York Giants DE Mathias Kiwanuka could move back to the defensive line, according to general manager Jerry Reese. 'Well I see him as still kind of a joker type player for us,'' Reese said. 'But from my view I think he will probably play more on the defensive line more than he played at linebacker in the past; just from my view. But that is Coach Coughlin's call."

The New York Giants likely would move DE Mathias Kiwanuka to defensive end full-time next season if the team does not re-sign free-agent DE Osi Umenyiora this offseason.
