New York Giants Will No Longer Pursue Trading Osi Umenyiora

A few weeks ago, the New York Giants learned that they might have to trade defensive end Osi Umenyiora and start looking for a new leader on the defensive end of the football field, but apparently that is no longer the case as the Giants have told Osi that he can no longer seek a trade.

So even though the Pro Bowl defensive end was getting a lot of interest around the league with teams like the Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams, New England Patriots, San Diego Chargers, Denver Broncos, Baltimore Ravens and the Seattle Seahawks willing to work out a deal with the boys in blue, the Giants will be holding onto him for at least one more season.

Reportedly, the New York Giants might have been asking a little too much for Osi Umenyiora because they wanted to get their hands on a first-round draft pick and no team was willing to give it up in return for the Pro Bowl defensive end. With that being said, both Umenyiora and the Giants will have to put their differences aside and suck it up for one more season.

Hopefully, for the sake of the Giants and Umenyiora, the two sides can come to a new deal or a restructured contract after this upcoming season. Maybe the Giants will explore a trade during the upcoming NFL regular season, but as of right now Osi Umenyiora will have to suit up for New York this year.
