Osi Umenyiora, you have brought the circus to town. The New York Giants' best defensive player is frustrated over the lack of a new contract.

And from the looks of things, this issue is not going to be settled quietly.

Umenyiora had a stretch last season where he had seven sacks in just three games, including six forced fumbles. Yes, SIX. That number is so astonishing; in fact, if he had just played those three games, he would have been tied for the league lead in forced fumbles.

Instead, he finished with 10. Wow.

So I think we have established that Umenyiora is a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks.

The question is, how come nobody was willing to give the Giants a sweet enough deal when Osi was on the trade block earlier this week?

Well, for starters, the Giants' price was a little high. (Did it need to be a first-rounder?) Second, this is the end of free agency, and many teams who would have surely been in the bidding cannot afford the 29-year-old superstar.

Check back here as I delve into the latest news surrounding the ever-intriguing Osi Umenyiora saga.
