08:01 AM ET 08.04 | Osi Umenyiora's mere presence at practice hinted at a thaw in the Osi-Giants Cold War. That may be the last sign of peace for a while, because according to a source who has spoken to Umenyiora, he is even angrier than he was when this whole mess started. The source said he was fuming Wednesday morning when the Giants told his agent, Tony Agnone, that he no longer had permission to seek a trade for his client after just two unsuccessful days of trying to find a team willing to meet the Giants' asking price of a first-round pick. "He is sure they could've traded him," one source close to Umenyiora told the Daily News Wednesday night. "They had a lot more interest in him than they thought they would."

A first-rounder, eh? Are the Giants hoping to enter the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes on the back of some other unfortunate team?

"Osi now even angrier"

Watch out, he may start spraying his human urine on everything.

This guy has to be the biggest whiner in NY sports history. Trade him to a CFL teams or something. Osi, I like you but SHUT UP and play. YOU signed the damn contract.

Definitely.

I still picture the scene of when he ripped the seat out of the car in Police Academy. He was even loved back home in Britain. A very nice and gentle giant.

What a title. He's even angrier. I needed a good laugh this morning.

Wonder if Osi is mad enough to do that.

When he's healthy, Osi is as good a DE as anyone in the league. His history of injuries will keep him from getting the huge payday he wants, and those injuries will keep other teams from giving the Giants what they want for him.

Tiki Barber and Jeff George are suiting up as we speak.

August 4, 2011  09:01 AM ET

I wonder if he's turning green yet.

August 4, 2011  09:03 AM ET

Why is it that I get the strong sense that this dude is going to get a big bag of money next year and do little to earn it...

August 4, 2011  09:03 AM ET

What a maroon! The rest of the league told Osi what he was really worth.

It's collusion to keep Osi and any other players who outperform their contracts from getting uppity.

Your contract with your name on it is in the Giants hands. Honor your word and play.
