Well it could be a question if he would restructure that deal then. At the same time I would no be really happy about giving up our 2nd rounder since we don't have a first next year. Maybe if it was the 2013 2nd rounder.

Crusader; the major reason Osi wants to leave the Giants is because he wants a new deal and be paid more. That being said, I am sure the Wizard of Airline Hwy can work his magic.

On a side note, the Ravens (GM Ozzy Newsome) is a bit concerned about his history with hip and knee injuries.

Strato; A. Brown carries a $3mm cap this year. Junnya is just a fraction less!

Well boo him then. I don't think we can afford that. Gotta hope Romeus gets healthy and back to being a beast.

I think if we get Osi we have the best D Line in the NFL. Hands down. But if we know Atlanta is going after him WE MUST pursue him! Our defense would be BEAST if this goes the way we all want...

I agree with Cutta. Our defense needs all the love it can get and if ATL has got him on radar, we need to intercept. I think Osi would absolutely love to play for the Saints and Gregg W. Who the hell wants to play for Tom Coughlin anymore? This acquisition would just about top the best free agency season we've ever had, and unlike the Eagles, this team would be a team of chemistry, not just a stew of new names to the franchise.

Osi may be going to Seattle where they can afford him...

Don't be surprised to see Tampa Bay jump in...

With Will Smith under contract and the investment made in the rookie Jordan, Osi to Saints is a dead end...

Alex Brown is solid DE who will make an excellent "rotation" player...

I bet he could be had for a 3rd. Dishing out large extensions typically plays a big part in these sort of trades... compensation is generally lower.
