Ravens Unlikely To Pay Price For Umenyiora

The Baltimore Ravens have been mentioned as one of the teams that might be interested in trading for disgruntled New York Giants defensive end, Osi Umenyiora. Umenyiora is still under contract with the Giants, so he stays their property until the team says otherwise and apparently their asking price might be a bit too high for what the Ravens would even consider offering. In addition, Osi wants a new contract, reportedly in the range of $10 million a year, which would probably put him way out of the Ravens league.

With DT Haloti Ngata looking for a big payday, as well as four year veterans QB Joe Flacco and RB Ray Rice, both ready to renegotiate their original rookie contracts, to consider spending that much in a contract, much less a first round draft pick just for the right to negotiate with the Giants star, seems to go against everything that Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome has stood for over the years.

According to NYDailyNews.com, the Ravens are probably not in the thick of the hunt compared to the other teams mentioned. At the same time, ProFootballTalk.com also mentions the Ravens, adding that pretty much every team is unwilling to surrender the Giants asking price of a first round draft pick and it could very well end up with Umenyiora playing in New York for the 2011 season with the hope of hitting free agency after a productive year with the Giants.
