We all know the DE's, how much they cost, their ages and capabilities. What do you do?
This is a very tricky situation.
Will Osi's career last as long as Strahan? What if he lasts another four years? That's a lot of football
Tuck - Captain or not, with all these injuries, what level will he playing at in three years? Will he last three years? This is a strong, tight man (when compared to a "wirey" Osi) who still is only around 278lbs and goes on the inside often. Like a RB that takes a pounding, do the wheels fall off this guy overnight? He dishes out as much punishment as he takes.
Kiwi - The forgotton one. With speculation of Osi getting traded, etc, I have two questions.
a. How many more years will a younger Kiwi last when compared to Osi and Tuck? He did have a mysterious neck ailment
b. How much is a guy worth in a trade who is 28 yrs old, can play DE and LB in 4-3 and likely OLB in a 3-4 with the option of putting his hand on the ground and blitzing from the outside like Ware? He's got one more year at $4 million.
JPP is a given - the rest is very tricky. IMO, Kiwi could return the most in a trade b/c of his versatility and age. If either, or bot,h of the other two go down or have a drop off in performance, the Giants are going to kick themselves if the forgotton one isn't wearing blue.
Tricky - what do you do? (emotions aside)
