The 3rd pass rusher didn't seem to help when it was Tuck, Tolly and JPP.
[/quote]He did say legit pass rusher in all fairness.[/quote]
To your point then, does it matter?[/quote]Yes, Tolly and Osi don't compare. Osi is legit and Tolly isn't.
That is what you are arguing though isn't it, that Osi is a legit pass rusher?[/quote]
i actually didn't say legit in the first post he responded to, thats where the confusion is. But yes I mean a third legit pass rusher
Ok find me a legit pass rusher that makes less then even twice what Osi will make in 2012 that we could get in FA.[/quote]
OSi is not going to play if he doesnt get an extension. Just becuase he said he won't talk to the media, doesn't mean he still won't do what he feels hes gotta do..
Maybe thats where we are missing. You have faith in him, i don't.
but I DO think that with the extension and more money that would offer him, if he doesn't choose to accept it, that Abraham could be signed for that
Abraham made $12mil last year and will command at LEAST half of that even at 34 (probably more like 2 years at $8mil a year).
No way Reese goes for that. I just don't see it and Reese has yet to ever sign a short term big money FA (it could happen ... there are first times for everything).
Osi's extension will obviously depend on how much he's asking for and the length of the exteension and I'm sure will be extremely incentive based which will be a cap help to us.
Osi could hold out yes ... but it would be financial suicide (much like he killed his market value with his BS last year). I'd be surprised if his agent isn't holding one of his relatives hostage right now.
I do think he's on the ROSTER in 2012 though ... just too much upside for the Giants to keep him (barring someone giving us a stupidly good trade).[/quote]
ree agent DE John Abraham says he's aiming for an annual "$12 million-plus" in his new contract.
out the five top ends," Abraham said. "Everybody is getting 12-plus. I
made $8 million last year ... how am I greedy when Iím just trying to
get paid the same thing they are getting paid?" Three months shy of his
34th birthday, Abraham spent the majority of 2011 on a snap count.
Extremely unlikely to get an annual $12 million, Abraham might even have
trouble matching the $8 million he earned last season. Feb 25 - 9:55 AM
i agree with rotoworld, i'd be VERY surprised if he got a 3 for 24 mil deal. I agree Reese wouldn't go for that... but whats the cotract that would make Osi happy? whats the deal we're willing to take?
He already denied the incentives thing last year.
It won't be a suicide, he'll milk an injury like he did this year (in my opinion) and will be happy when hes paid. SOMEBODY will give him a contrac that makes him happy.
