The New York Giants have told DE Osi Uemnyiora and his agent, Tony Agnone, that they can no longer shop the disgruntled defensive end services. It appears the window to shop him for a first-round pick has closed.
Umenyiora has stated in the past that he believes there’s a “chance” he will remain with the Giants this season, but is very “frustrated” that this whole ordeal has been made out publicly.
“I hope there is a chance (of working out something with the Giants),” he said in the e-mail to The AP. “But who knows? What really annoys me is the hypocrisy of people clamoring for my head for asking for a new deal or to be traded, saying I have two years left on my deal. These contracts only mean something to us? Where is (recently released center Shaun) O’hara? Where is (recently released guard) Rich Seubert? True inspirational football players. They were cut after being injured. They have years left on their deal. Why is (running back Brandon) Jacobs asked to take a pay cut? He has years left on his deal.”
