    Giving Osi a new contract is absolutely essential to our success moving forward

    We are losing players left & right(so it seems; Rio, Tolly, Ross, possibly T2, we lost Jacobs, Blackburn, Devin Thomas...list goes on)



    WE HAVE TO KEEP THIS D-LINE IN-TACT.


    Trading Osi would be the biggest mistake of the off season. He is a play maker, a game changer & a true Giant. He is also a big game performer. He has plenty of years left in him, let him retire a Giant.


    Give him a 3 year deal & let's keep this pass rush top notch with the best talent for years.



    We have to give Tuck a new contract soon as well. Isn't the cap supposed increase in 2013?
    ALL IN!!!!!!!!

    giants should either extend osi or trade him..he will not be a happy giant if he has to play on the one yr $3M remaining..but osi thinks he's a 5yr/50m player when the giants might go 3yrs/20M..i would trade him for a 2 & a 4..this draft is deep in DL & i trust the giants will find a younger cheaper replacement

    since when has devin thomas been lost?

    if osi leaves kiwi steps in, not sweating osi. he has 1 yr left on his contract too. depends on osi's attitude, if he's willing to sign a fair, cap friendly contract to retire with the giants, sure who wouldnt be on board.

    if he starts demanding tuck and jpp money or holds out, peace.

    kiwi is a talented pass rusher in his own right and it seems we finally have solid depth at lb's where if we had to move kiwi, we'd have capable guys behind him.

    Change happens.

    Having said that I'd like to keep Osi, but if he's going to want $6-8mil a year to do it, I'd rather not mortgage the future.

    All depends on how greedy he wants to be about it.

    The Giants don't have to do anything with Osi right now. He is under contract.

    Re: Giving Osi a new contract is absolutely essential to our success moving forward



    you know im missing something with this Osi stuff




    last year it was the same thing ... pay him or trade him




    WHY???




    he was under contract last year, he played, we won a Super Bowl




    he is under contract this year, he'll play, he'll play hard since he wants another big contract and maybe we'll do some more winning




    then he's free, no biggie, we have JPP, we'll need $$ to sign Tuck, who is a far better leader than Osi ... and the way the NFL is ... so many things can happen in a year ... a young player could emerge for us ... Osi could get injured again ... maybe Tuck gets hurt and Kiwi goes back to playing more DE and does great ... just so many variables ... i think we simply let Osi play out his contract

    This thread is like the Twilight Zone.

    A guy who plays 20 snapps a game and is guaranteed to miss something like 3 games is now essential?

    Not only is he essential but he's apparently worth a 2nd and 4th in trade value??

    And if he does go its fine because we can move Kiwi back to DE because we now have great depth a linebacker???


    On Earth none of the above is close to true.

    On earth people realize what a significant loss it would be to lose Osi.

    How is Osi guaranteed to miss 3 games? Because he missed time last year? Prior to take he played two straight seasons healthy. Would of been 3 if not for that freak injury in pre season.



    Losing Tolly a GREAT character locker room guy, GREAT ST player & good depth on our line.


    You keep taking out pieces of what helped you win those championships could have a negative effect.



    I trust in Reese, I'm just saying if we can give Osi a new reasonable contract I think we should.

    you've got the draft, you've got maybe a FA steal, you've got younger players already on the roster at those positions that could emerge




    listen, if Osi came to JR and said, hey man, i want to finish my career here and i know i'm getting older and i know i've had some injuries, but i'm willing to sign an incentive-laden contract extension ... then fine, but he isn't going to do that and i don't blame him ... some team that is having more trouble than we are pressuring the QB will over pay him in FA ... that's how it works




    as far as a trade .... ok again, if some team says here is a 1st round pick or here is a 2nd and a 4th, then i do that all day and nite ... but it's not happening ... you probably have a bunch of teams offering a 3rd ... andplease, Osi should be a monster next year, since he will need to be to get the money he wants ... and if i'm Jerry, i don't want to have to answer questions when the team goes thru a bad stretch and isn't pressuring the QB and Osi has 8 sacks and 4 FF halfway thru the year for another teamand i'm being asked about the precious 3rd round pick i got




    once again, just like last year, we dont have to do anything

    Not saying we shouldn't try to make Osi happy but he's a total luxury at this point.

    Like I said. We're talking around 20 snaps a game. Strahan said he suit up and play right now if he was promised to be used for no more than 20 snaps.

    That alone tells you that he's not essential. Based on his playing time you see he's not essential.

    Also losing other players doesn't necessarily raise Osi's value. That would not be a very pragmatic way of dealing with the situation.

    As far as missing time..Yeah he's gonna miss at least 2 games this season. He's not getting younger. He missed a bunch of time this past season despite already missing a bunch of time and being used as a situational component. If he's can get hurt playing limited snaps a game in a matter of like 6 games he's a injury risk.

    To be fair. I don't see how we can move Kiwi out of Linebacker with the roster we currently have. Our linebackers are piss poor. So that might raise Osi's value to us a bit but that fact actually hurts his trade value so a 2nd is completely out of the question. We
    d be hard pressed to get someone to bight on a 4th at this point.

    What's essential is that we find an suitable replacement for Rio and we address our linebacker issues.

    Its also essenital that Eli and JPP stay healthy.

    Osi...he's a bell and a whistle
