  • Great news on the Osi front.. John Abrahan 3 years/$16 million

    http://corner.bigblueinteractive.com...&thread=438042


    Despite Abraham's statements that he deserves $12 million/year, he ended
    up signing a three year deal worth "about $16 million." More
    specifically, Abraham got a $2.25 million signing bonus, base salaries
    of $1.5 million (2012), $3.25 million (2013) and $3.25 million (2014),
    along with "about $7 million" of per-game roster bonuses if he's
    healthy and playing.


    I absolutely LOVE this deal as a roadmap to extending Osi. Abraham is
    older, but has been marginally more productive than Osi the past 2-3
    years.




    It may be wishful thinking that Osi would ever sign something like this,
    but it would provide great comfort to have out #3 pass-rushing stud
    tied up for another 3-4 years!

        This deal will certainly give the Giants something to point to in any negotiations with Osi, but Osi will be pointing to Cole's deal . . . . .

          Osi said after the Super Bowl he would love to stay a Giant even if he had to take less.


          He's not looking for a monster deal he just wants a new contract.

          He should get more than Abraham but not as much as Cole.

            Agree and Abraham is going to be 34 in less than 2 months. Huge age difference between Osi an John.

              Cole is a better all round player than Osi...

                no negotiations needed, have him play out his contract and he will come back after when he is 33 and beg reese to give him 1.5 a season.

                  I hope he plays well for is but I think that something is not right here. Do we even need him at that price? I think they shouldn't have picked him up and there are better options.

                      Osi is a year older and a slightly better pass rusher..

                      i just think its more comparable to Cole than to Abraham who is going on what, 35? And hes def not as good as Osi...

                          [/quote]I think Osi fits right in the middle of these two contracts or leans a bit toward Trent Coles. Osi is better at causing turnovers more than both of these guys but suffers against the run. His injury concern is equal to cole and abraham as well. So he certainly fits in the middle...3-4 years, $20-28 mil respectively.

                          As long as Osi plays his heart out, I would offer such a deal.

                            yes he is. Even if you base it just on sack numbers Cole is a better pass rusher. But Cole consistently has more hits/hurries than Osi as well.

                            Cole is a bad comparison for Osi, Abraham is much better comparison wise. Abraham is perhaps a slightly better pass rusher than Osi, there play against the run is similar. Even size wise they are similar. Abraham is 3 years older however, that is true.

                            But all this is meaningless, because Osi may want Mario Williams money.
