  • Osi Umenoriya

    He seems really unhappy with the Giants...maybe we can trade for him during the offseason..

    It seems like Giants can't afford to keep Tuck and Osi...Not only money wise but cant give them playing time wise...

    Spags-Osi combo, I am sure Osi would like that and maybe we can trade some players + next years 2nd round pick?

    Anybody think this could be possible?

    Re: Osi Umenoriya

    They wont give him up Tuck and Osi are locked up and they are still young. It looks like they are putting all the blame on DC Bill sheriden. He is too good of a pass rusher to let go, especially when he is locked up and your alternative Kiwunuka isn't as good and is a free agent after 2010. The giants are fine money wise that isn't the issue at all.

    Players? who would they want? Bottom line Sheriden is out and Osi isn't coming here

        Can you imagine getting Osi and then Suh. That would be outstanding.

            No they will give up Osi but not for just a 2nd rounder

            I'm thinking 2nd round, 6th round, decent young DB (Bradley Fletcher)

            Osi has a lot of talent

              Alot of players aren't happy if the team says your not going anywhere you aren't going anywhere. If you don't play you are just hurting yourself and loosing money. He has no leverage he is signed long term. After Sheriden gets fired he will be much more happy and will probably start again.

                Why would the Rams give up on promising young corner in Flethcer and why would Giants trade for a seriously injured player who would probably start the year on the PUP list. A 2nd and 6th is alot to ask from a rebuilding team. Thats more of deal a team on the verge makes. Rams definately aren't that, draft picks are paramount here, we are looking to get more not loose some.

                    I wouldn't mind trading for Osi however I think if we go with Suh, we're more than likely going to get a QB in the 2nd round and giving that up wouldn't be a great idea unless you are referring to the 2011 2nd rounder. I think it's critical to have as many draft picks as possible for 2010.

                      According to Pro Football Talk (insert grain of salt), the Giants aren't interested in dealing Osi Umenyiora and suspect his public discontent is from a desire for a new contract. I wouldn't be very willing to trade a whole lot for Osi, considering he's been a disappointment this season and missed all of 2008 with a knee issue.

                      If the Rams want to spend their second round pick on a defensive end, just draft one. The potential for some good value is there. It's entirely possible that Greg Hardy, Brandon Graham, Greg Romeus, or Everson Griffin will be there. Just use the pick on one of them, if you want a DE in exchange for our second rounder. Pair any of those guys up with Suh and Long on the other side, and DL becomes a huge strength IMO.

                      That being said, can the Rams justify two linemen with their first two picks? Tough call.

                        Osi Umenyura
                        by NJ Ramsfan1
                        Would love to see the Rams try to package a reasonable deal to get Umenyura from the Giants. The possibility makes perfect sense, as the Giants just drafted the DE from South Florida, Umenyura has expressed past unhappiness at the prospect of not starting and of course the Rams need a defensive end with an aging Leonard Little nearing the end. The Spags-reunion factor makes this plausible.

                        Comments or thoughts??

                        Umenyiora free to seek trade
                        by Tampa_Ram
                        The New York Giants have given permission to the agent of Osi Umenyiora to work out a trade for the two-time Pro Bowl defensive end, a league source told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.

                        Graziano: Osi Blinks First

                        Osi Umenyiora's holdout didn't last long, but's Dan Graziano says this isn't the end of the saga. Blog
                        • Giants blog |

                        The Giants want a first-round pick in exchange for Umenyiora, who continues to be unhappy with his contract status even after a meeting with team officials over the weekend, the source said.
                        Umenyiora's agent, Tony Agnone, began contacting teams on Monday. He and a spokesman for the Giants declined comment on Monday.
                        Umenyiora is expected to remain in training camp pending the trade.
                        In a sworn affidavit as part of the recent Brady vs. NFL lawsuit during the lockout, Umenyiora said Reese told him in 2008 that if the defensive end were still playing at a high level in two years, he'd reward him with a new contract or trade him to a team that would pay him like a top-five defensive end.
                        Umenyiora has two years remaining on his contract worth a total of $8 million. The two-time Pro Bowler is coming off a season in which he had 11.5 sacks and 10 forced fumbles.
                        Umenyiora met with Giants general manager Jerry Reese on Sunday, and coach Tom Coughlin had said that he thought progress was made.
                        "Osi and I had a very good conversation and really that is all I am going to say about that," Reese said in an interview on the Boomer and Carton show on WFAN radio on Monday morning. "There are still some ongoing issues involved with that."
                        Umenyiora reported to camp on Saturday and underwent his physical on Sunday. Coughlin said Umenyiora was scheduled to visit with team doctor Russell Warren to get clearance to practice since Umenyiora has had issues in past with his hip, which required surgery in the offseason. Umenyiora watched practice from the sideline on Sunday night.
                        "We'll do what's best for the New York Giants," Reese added when asked if he will rip up the defensive end's contract and give him a raise. "I don't have any comments about Osi until we get all the issues resolved."

                        Id love to have Osi part of the rams squad but giving up a 1st round pick for him is way to much and will never happen with the rams.

                        Rams willing to trade for Umenyiora?
                        by Big Horn
                        Per Rotoworld

                        The Chargers, Seahawks, Broncos, Ravens and Rams have expressed an interest in trading for Osi Umenyiora, sources tell the New York Daily News.

                        None of these teams appear willing to meet the Giants' asking price of a first-round pick. But if the price is dropped to a second-rounder, the Giants may get someone to bite. The Daily News' sources cite the Rams as the team to watch -- former Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo now coaching in St. Louis.

                        Should we trade for Peyton Hillis?
                        by sosa39rams
                        They said the next thing he does is request a trade because of the lack of interest the Browns are showing in re-signing him.

                        Should we trade for him? What do you think the asking price is? SJAX is clearly slowing down. I'd do it if it was cheap, other than that I'd pass.
