Broncos Reportedly Offered 2nd Round Pick For Giants' Osi Umenyiora

The New York Giants aren't trading defensive end Osi Umenyiora after the player's agent failed to find a team willing to give up a first-round pick for him. According to the New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano, five teams, one of which was the Denver Broncos, wouldn't offer more than a second-round pick for the defensive end who is seeking to be paid as one of the top at his position.

There was one report that the Giants had lowered their demand to a second-round pick, but that has turned out to be wrong. Vacchiano reports that the Bears and the Patriots had started asking about Umenyiora when that false report emerged.

The Giants could always return to trading Umenyiora, who, while at camp, does not plan on practicing until there is a resolution to the situation. This could be the first fight between the NFL and the NFLPA under the new collective bargaining agreement.
