    Probably wouldn't get any more than a 3rd. But we would free up $4MM plus in cap room.</P>


    [/quote] I don't think its realistic to expect anything better than a 4th and for that I don't think its worth trading him. If I were JR I'd give him a little boost this year to keep him happy...and then let him go on his merry way.[/quote]</P>


    I think the cap room is as important or even more important that the compensation.</P>

    We better not lose Osi. He was the spark to our defense last year, and was incredible in getting pressure on the QB. We need him.

    Get real, the Giants would be lucky to get a single 4th round pick for an injury prone whiner who is approaching 30 years old.

    Re: If Osi is traded for a 2nd and 5th

    [quote user="RagTime Blue"]As much as I like the excitement of trades and getting new players through the draft, I can't help but think that Osi is most valuable to us playing out his contract here, and then getting whatever compensatory future picks for him signing big elsewhere.

    And I wouldn't consider myself a loyal Osi fan or an Osi hater.* Giants fan only.

    In paper that's the best scenario for the Giants and I hope it turns out that way. I really don't think the Giants are extending Osi's contract and realistically he's not sitting down Tuck or JPP . Difficult to see him go all emotions aside but again the best for the Giants is to let him play out his contract, still an awesome player and top player as starter/ backup and God forbids if Tuck or JPP were to have a career threatening injury he will still have a place on the team. That been said its only a matter of time for all of us to find out when the Osi's soap opera will start again this off season .

    Why does everybody keep saying we are trading him?

    People here that think Osi isn't worth more than a 4th rounder are clueless. Tell me what 4th rounder in this years draft is going to give you roughly 13 sacks and I will agree that is all hes worth.

    Who the hell is giving up a 2nd and a 5th for Osi? NOBODY

    Be happy if we get a 3rd and at that value I'd rather just keep him for one year and take the compensatory pick when he signs elsewhere after next year, which he will.
    In the tough times we find out who we are.

    I really think the Rivers trade is the writing on the wall for Osi.* </P>


    Boley, Jacquian, Kiwi and Rivers.* No reason to spend the 5th round pick plus whatever money River's is owed for depth.* I just don't see it.* I'm thinking Osi is gone and Kiwi is going to move back down to DE.</P>[/quote]I truely don't see it...granted, I am just going on the fact that he (Rivers) lost a starting role, is oft-inured and the "highlights" that some have posted here are enough to make a sewer worker barf! I see him as depth only or role player. Not a threat or a lock to hold any position allowing Kiwi to move to end. I do love Kiwi on the right side...definately his best side to rush from but, unless Osi blows a gasket here during the off-season, I would hate to see him go...dude is a turn-over machine...no one...and I mean NO ONE, on this teams causes more loose balls and turnovers than he does...unless negative turnovers count then Eli gets the nod.

    Osi only has 2, maybe 3 years left in the tank. I'd say about 10 sacks a year average (30 total). With the way JR drafts, a 4th rounder DE could give us that over a decade. We need youth.

    That said, I'm in favor of just giving Osi a little extra this season (given the cap room), letting him play out the season, and letting his contract expire. If he signs with another team, we get a comp pick anyway...


    Post 4/20 mock draft:
    Round 1: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
    Round 2: ASJ, TE, Washington
    Round 3: Marcus Martin, C, USC
    Round 4: Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford
    Round 5: Khairi Fortt, OLB, California
    Round 6: Ethan Westbrooks, DE, West Texas A&M
    Round 6 comp: Cornelius Lucas, OT, Kansas State
