      Why is it assumed everybody who signs at LB or DE means the end of Osi?

      I think this extension probably means the giants have a bit more cap room, Kiwi was due 4 mil this year in base salary, bet this extension knocks that cap number down.

        Take this for what it's worth:





        Some buzz out there about the #Titans going after Giants DE Osi Umenyiora. Sorry to be a buzz-kill, but don't get your hopes up

          I hope Osi stays....but even if he left, with Tuck, JPP, and Kiwi, we're more than set at DE

              Osi will not like this one bit - but he has no leverage. Tough to hold out in a contract year. Looks like he will play it out for a nice small cap hit and then be on his way. Which is fine, at that point he is 32 and we got the best years out of him. I love osi so dont want to talk about him like cattle but sadly thats what the NFL is sometimes. He mastered the strip sack and regardless of his lack of run d those plays are game changing, but certainly its JPP and Tucks starting job now and Osi will rotate as they all do.

                Well it has been mentioned by some writers and I thought Osi said it could happen.

                  Since Osi and I were born on the exact same day, I can tell you he is 30 and wont be 31 til Nov 16 this year.

                    Im not saying it cant. But everytime the giants make any sort of move at either position everyone assumes they made the move because of Osi. I dont think the two are related.

                    Kiwi was a damn good player last year, his contract is up after this season, he was resigned for 3 more years. Has nothing to do with Osi.

                      As I thought, Kiwi's base salary this year dropped from 4 million to 950k. Next year 2.95 mil, then 4.3 and 4.7.

                        If we can get their 2nd (52) then I'd be all for it.

                          Maybe people are thinking that the LB's are getting full and Kiwi might be moved again.

                          If they did trade him for a second, I wonder what they would look to draft with the pick and where it would be.

                            News on how much guaranteed?

                            EDIT: I like this move regardless. Even 4.7 is a good deal, and he'll turn 33 next time he hits free agency, which means we get him through the tail end of his prime.

                              For reference, from PFF

                              Kiwi played last year 60% of his snaps at OLB. 21% at DE, 9% ILB, 8% DT.
