Ravens hot for Osi?

The Baltimore Sun has reported that the Ravens would be interested in Osi Umenyiora.

The Sun is reporting that the Giants have lowered their demand of a first-round pick to a second-rounder and that the Ravens are interested.

As of late last night, a source told us that the Giants have not lowered their price. But it certainly appears that the Ravens are in if the price is right for Umenyiora. The Sun reports that several Baltimore officials are urging GM Ozzie Newsome to trade for the defensive end. So it's possible the Giants could have called the Ravens and told them directly that they have lowered the price. Earlier this week, the Giants gave Umenyiora's agent, Tony Agnone, the green light to pursue a trade.

ESPN NFL senior writer John Clayton tweeted earlier that perhaps the Seahawks would be interested in dealing TE John Carlson and a pick for Umenyiora after signing TE Zach Miller. That would likely mean free-agent TE Kevin Boss was on his way somewhere else. Boss said in an interview with Sirius NFL radio recently that he'd be intrigued by the Raiders if they lost Miller.

As for Umenyiora, NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports that if the Giants lower their demand from a first-rounder, the Ravens, Seahawks, Patriots and possibly Falcons would be interested.

Meanwhile, Perry Fewell and the Giants defense wait.

Stay tuned.
