Osi says he did not get any promise that the
#NYG won't use the franchise tag on him. And if they do? "I'll be happy," he said.
Long term deal after this season book it!
On whether being a starter still matters: "Not in
this case. Really if it was anybody but JPP and Tuck then it would
matter. But those are my brothers, man. If theyíre starting I donít
care. Iíll back those guys up happily."
On his Super Bowl ring: "Yeah, I got it. I had
somebody here because I was out of the country at the time. Somebody
went to the event and got it for me."
On his conversations with Tuck: "We really didnít
talk much about football stuff or whatever. Me and Tuck are friends and
we talked about all kinds of different stuff. He didnít really mention
any contract talk or whatever. Heís coming up here soon himself, so Iím
sure he was paying close attention to what happened here."
On whether there's a "pot of gold" out there for him at the end of all of this:
"I donít know. I donít think I am playing for a contract. I am playing
for fun. Honestly, because I love to play. If you go out there thinking
about playing for a contract, the contract will never come that is for
sure. I have made money and I am happy to be here with my teammates. I
donít know what is going to happen next year. I might have a great year
and decide to stay."
Pro Bowl for Osi get ready.....
