Osi trade amount lowered


According to @jamisonHensley on Twitter, the Giants have lowered their asking price for Osi Umenyiora from a 1st round pick to a 2nd round pick

From what has been said so far, there are 5 teams that are interested in trading for Osi, including the Patriots and the Ravens, but no one wanted to pay a 1st rounder for a player with some prior injury issues and a demand for a much larger contract. However, since the drop by the Giants, Ozzie has been urged by some of our top officials to get the deal done ASAP.

 

Of course we would need to free up some cap room by resigning Ngata to a long term deal. Osi is currently slated to make around $3.5 million this year and next year, but has been demanding that the Giants give him a longer and higher paid contract. But given his stats over the past year and his career overall, you'd have to say this would be an immediate upgrade to our pass rush. His 11.5 sacks last season and his 59 sacks over his 6 year career could definitely add some much needed pressure to a team that only got 27 sacks all of last year.

 

I think we'll see in the next day or 2 the Ravens making some moves around our roster to free up some space for Osi. At a 2nd round pick, it would be a really solid deal if he can stay healthy and be anywhere near his normal productivity.
