The New York football Giants gave Osi Umenyiora permission to seek a trade and the defensive end has wasted no time finding multiple potential suitors. It is being reported that up to five teams are in the hunt for Umenyiora’s services. New York is hoping for at least a second round pick in return.
The five teams involved in the Umenyiora sweepstakes are the St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens.
An interesting fit would be the St. Louis Rams who are now coached by Umenyiora’s former defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
It is being said that there is almost “no chance” he will play for the Giants in 2011 with his current contract. If New York does not restructure Umenyiora’s deal, he could be in for a season long holdout or try to force the team’s hand in a trade.
