I would say that there is nothing to evaluate at the DLine, as they are the best in football. I would look to trade Osi for an OT or LB, but other than that, it's all good.

I do agree that we carry too many DTs, but I would keep 5 instead of 4, as injuries have been all to familiar as of late.

Regarding OSI...

We will def keep Osi, at least for one year. I expect the Giants to negotiate and extend his contract. Don't be surprised. Osi is amazing. He puts pressure on the QB, he is great at forcing fumbles. He adds a dimension that gives us strength on our DLine that is too valuable to eliminate. Keep him as part of our strength.

He did get paid well. His contract was front loaded and he got his money for the years he played. Naturally as years move on in a long contract, eventually FA DEs will get more money for the new year. That's part of life and he signed his contract and got his money up front. Honor thy contract! Although he has had injuries, he is more valuable remaining with the Giants.

Unless another Team offers a first round pick, i would not trade him this year. If we do not extend his contract, then we will gte some type compensation for him. It's a win win for us either way.
