On Mother's Day Sunday, Osi Umenyiora decided to take his well-known beef with LeSean McCoy a step further -- sending this diss-tweet at the Philadelphia Eagles running back:
Happy Mothers Day Lesean Mccoy! Enjoy your special day!!

Umenyiora then tweeted to former Giants, current San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs, saying, "u know the beef is never over. Never."
The beef started last summer when McCoy dissed the New York Giants defensive end by calling him "overrated" and "soft." Since then, Umenyiora has been calling him "Lady Gaga" and referring to him as a "she."
"I refer to him as she because that is something that a woman would do," Umenyiora told ESPNNewYork.com last June. "You can sit over there and be a Twitter gangster all you want to but on the football field is where you are supposed to address these types of things."
"I have always referred to him as that because he is woman," Umenyiora continued. "We have a lot of animosity toward each other personally and on the football field is where I thought it was left. But he has decided to take it off the football field and say some things that I just have no respect for."
I think Umenyiora is being a bit of hypocrite on the Twitter gangster comment, considering what he just did today.
Looks we get to see the Giants-Eagles rivalry heat up even more next season
