Could also mean they are eying a DE in the draft and/or re-upping Osi.

They are freeing up a spot and if they lose Osi it's two...

My guess is that the team will make a fair offer to Osi soon, giving them plenty of time before draft day. if it doesnt work out, Osi could still be on the block. Maybe we draft to replace him at that point.

Problem is this draft doesn't really have many speed rushers. Theres a bunch of guys who could play left end. Mercilus, jones, crawford but not many right de prospects like osi. Next year has a bunch tho so maybe we give osi some extra incentive cash for this year and let him walk next year and grab someone like Brandon Jenkins from fsu.

word on the street is Tolly is getting enough FA attention that he's probably pricing himself out of our affordability range for a 4th DE.</P>

I do not think this has anything to do with Justin playing DE this year.

Might have more to do with Kiwi playing more DE. Maybe we are eyeing a LB in the draft to.move kiwi up front more.

I was thinking maybe we hold out and make a decent offer to Osi near draft, if he refuses we see if we can either throw him to a team to swap #1s and move up a little bit or see if a team will give us their #2 for him since this draft is deep in the rush

My answer is yes - and i think Justin has a chance to be our next Tolly - actually i think he could be better - and I have picked him as my under the radar guy for next year, and hedged that bet with Tracy.

Tolly was an undersized end who rushed the passer decently -high motor - but not nearly stout enough to play the run. Hence 4th DE, and really not gonna get passed 3rd anywhere else. To me Trattou could be even better - kid played against redskins week one and flashed in preseason.

I think he is more then suited to rotate in as a 4th and may even turn some heads, that said predicted that down the depth chart is difficult cause we dont see practice and he has limited game film - so I will hedge with Tracy. While tolly was a fan favorite we dont lose all that much in my opinion.

I think the team is confident in their other DE prospects to be able to fill out the bottom of the rotation. </P>


A few posters have mentioned Trattou, but we also had a DE on the roster during pre-season, who had a really long name that I can't remember, who also showed some promise as well. I don't know if another team picked him up but he could also be another option. </P>

I remember him specifically being a DE, during a couple of pre-season games the announcers were talking about how well he was playing and that he's really auditioning for another team since the Giants were so deep at the position. </P>

If that's the case I'm really happy for him. Always played hard and has been a solid backup for us.

Trade Osi to the Texans. Losing Mario Williams, they may be desperate. [:D]

Could mean they're moving Kiwanuka back to DE.
