    What makes you think anybody is giving us a second for Osi?

    Burier: Yes.

      Probably wouldn't get any more than a 3rd. But we would free up $4MM plus in cap room.

      Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

        Can you imagine the outcry if Reese lets him go for LESS than a 2nd rounder?

          I know it will be especially fun around here. And I'm all for that.

            As much as I like the excitement of trades and getting new players through the draft, I can't help but think that Osi is most valuable to us playing out his contract here, and then getting whatever compensatory future picks for him signing big elsewhere.

            And I wouldn't consider myself a loyal Osi fan or an Osi hater. Giants fan only.

                I don't think its realistic to expect anything better than a 4th and for that I don't think its worth trading him.

                If I were JR I'd give him a little boost this year to keep him happy...and then let him go on his merry way.

                    I really think the Rivers trade is the writing on the wall for Osi.




                    Boley, Jacquian, Kiwi and Rivers. No reason to spend the 5th round pick plus whatever money River's is owed for depth. I just don't see it. I'm thinking Osi is gone and Kiwi is going to move back down to DE.

                      I think the cap room is as important or even more important that the compensation.




                      After all, he IS a back-up.

                        We better not lose Osi. He was the spark to our defense last year, and was incredible in getting pressure on the QB. We need him.

                          Get real, the Giants would be lucky to get a single 4th round pick for an injury prone whiner who is approaching 30 years old.

                            In paper that's the best scenario for the Giants and I hope it turns out that way. I really don't think the Giants are extending Osi's contract and realistically he's not sitting down Tuck or JPP . Difficult to see him go all emotions aside but again the best for the Giants is to let him play out his contract, still an awesome player and top player as starter/ backup and God forbids if Tuck or JPP were to have a career threatening injury he will still have a place on the team. That been said its only a matter of time for all of us to find out when the Osi's soap opera will start again this off season .
