Giants Offer Osi New Deal

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network is reporting that the Giants have offered Osi Umenyiora a new deal. Osi has been offered a range of between $400,000 and $1 million in new money, based on incentives. La Canfora notes that Osi still prefers a trade. La Canfora lists the Ravens, Seahawks, Patriots and the Chargers as teams interested. The Seahawks, according to La Canfora, mulled offering tight end John Carlson and a third round pick, but the Giants still want a first round pick.

I would have taken the Seattle deal, but I’m not in charge. The Giants are most likely not going to get a first rounder (unless an injury happens and some team gets desperate.). It’s possible that all of this is a ploy to not go through camp. It’s weird that the teams interested in him are, for the most part, 3-4 teams. He’s not a 3-4 end, and while I think he can make the transition to 3-4 linebacker, it’s tough and won’t be seamless. That gives me pause. As the Osi turns is getting a bit stranger.

    Carlson for Osi sounds like a must. beckum and ballard are not going to cit it

    Osi make the transition to 3-4 end? There isn’t an end in the 3-4 defense really. He’s too small to play the 3 technique and cannot play OLB in a 3-4 or even ILB. He’s a 4-3 DE that cannot play the strong side even, doesn’t play the run all that well, a very limited player.

    Whomever thinks any team will give us a #2 pick is delusional. If we get a #5 conditional we’d be lucky. Why do people always overrate their players, reality is Osi is damaged goods and now a locker room cancer. What idiot would give you a #2 for him? Please find him so we can do it.
