"I've told Osi this many times: I don't want to play without him," Coughlin said Wednesday at the NFL Annual Meeting.

Umenyiora has wanted a contract extension for years, and there was speculation he could be traded because of his dissatisfaction about not receiving a new deal.

Coughlin didn't say Umenyiora wouldn't be traded or have his contract desires met in some regard.
