      Some players play when they want to like and some play hard all the time like Strahan, Ray Lewis, Jerry Rice.

        He got old. Happens all the time in the NFL, usually around age 30. Osi is 32.

          Maybe he'll come back better next year if we don't get rid of him. He's been a damn good player and he may still have a lot of fight left in him yet.

          1st: Forrest Lamp, OG Western Kentucky
          2nd: Caleb Brantley, DT Florida

            The problem is he's in a division where all 3 opposing QBs are fairly mobile. When the least mobile opposing QB in your division is Tony Romo, there's a real issue.

            I think he walks, and a team like the Jets, Raiders, or Chargers pick him up. Brady and Peyton are QBs that Osi would be more effective against, especially given their age...

              Totally loved when he strip sacked Rodgers in the div. round playoff game, and then forced the fumble against their lineman who had recovered the ball on the same play. That was ****ing badass.

                He turned 31 in Nov and still looks the same as years before. He still has a wicked first step and can run the arc as well as anyone. Never played the run well and always gave up plays by freelancing. It would be nice to have him back but it this team has to overpay mediocre players like Diehl, Baas and Canty.

                There is no one of this team, including JPP with the type of off the line quickness Osi has.

                  I wouldn't consider Foles mobile, and he will probably be the starting Eagles QB next year. Against immobile pocket passers, Osi still has value. But at age 32, I'd rather let someone else spend their valuable cap space on him.

                        its tragic how dramatic osis/tucks falloff has been. they havent played 1/10th of their capability. its really shocking. i know i forget how much osi meant to this team back when. that strip sack was a thing of beauty. he wasnt even close to that level this year...

                            For someone who relies mainly on their speed he looked noticeably slower this year.

                            He was one of the best strip sack artists I've ever seen in his prime.

                              His big plays far outweighed his faults. But in this day and age of salary cap hell, it's time to move on. Whatever salary cap money we have left needs to be spent on younger players.
