New York Giants DE Osi Umenyiora reportedly isn't taking the news too well that he can no longer seek a trade.

The Giants told Osi Umenyiora on Wednesday that he was no longer allowed to seek a trade after his agent was unable to find a team that was willing to trade a first-round pick in exchange for Umenyiora.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News has reported that Umenyiora was “fuming” when he found the news out about the trade talks ending.  The Giants allowed Umenyiora to stay away from practice on Wednesday to clear his head, but the defensive end showed up and refused to practice.

Where the standoff goes now is anybody's guess.  However, it doesn't seem to be heading in a direction that will please both sides.
