  • Osi Umenyura

    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??

    I definately think Osi will be moved, I only hope it's to the Rams. That conversations had taken place during the combine between the two teams gives me hope also. Osi would make a definate splash for this team, and frankly I don't mind what compensation we give up for him (barring maybe our 2nd) because we do need players now.

      With the plethora of talent available to us right now at 33, I would not trade that pick for Osi. However if they would take our fourth it would be on like DONKEY KONG.

        Take it for what it's worth, but the Giants came out and said after their pick that Osi was not going to be traded. The entertained phone calls, but never had the intention of trading him.

          He will be traded for the right price. I feel like they want a 2nd and we are willing to give a 4th yet our 3rd is too high to be a compromise. Unless we can trade back in the third or second I don't think we can pull it off.

            There is a good chance that we trade out of the 33 spot, so do you guys think we could use some of the picks that we get as part of that deal to package something for him?

              Plugging veterans into key positions to complete the puzzle makes sense if you're close to being a contender but the Rams are not that close yet and I'd much rather build the defense through the draft.

                  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?

                  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.

                  5 Things the Rams can learn from the Champion Giants
                  by AvengerRam_old
                  1. Be Patient With Your Franchise QB. Here are Eli Manning's passer ratings for his first four seasons: 55.4, 75.9, 77.0, 73.9. Sam Bradford needs time and weapons. Give him both.

                  2. Front 4 Pressure Provides a Huge Advantage. If the Rams can one day generate the kind of pressure the Giants do with their front four by adding some DTs to Chris Long and Robert Quinn, that could become the core of the defense.

                  3. Don't Underestimate the Value of BPA Picks. When the Giants drafted Jason Pierre-Paul, they already had Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora and Matthias Kiwanuka on their roster. However, this pick has paid HUGE dividends, not only in terms of JPP's play, but in the way he's helped them maintain their pass rush while Tuck and Osi were injured. Also, with JPP there, a guy like Osi failed in his effort to extort a new contract. You know... maybe I need to consider adding Quinton Coples to my next draft board...

                  4. Schemes Should Adjust to Players, Not the Other Way Around. When the Giants won the Super Bowl in 2006, it was thunder (Jacobs) and lightning (Bradshaw) leading the way. This time, it was Eli throwing to Nicks, Manningham and Cruz that got them to the big game. Same head coach, different players, different approach.

                  5. Just Make the Playoffs. The Giants (like last year's Packers) demonstrated that the playoffs are really a "second season" where seeding and home field advantage are important, but not necessarily determinative factors.

                  Shakeup looming for Giants D
                  By Ralph Vacchiano
                  December 4, 2009 11:53 AM

                  Six weeks of bad defensive play has finally caused defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan to make some changes — or so it seems.

                  It appears that defensive end Osi Umenyiora and defensive tackle Fred Robbins have been sent to the bench in favor of end Mathias Kiwanuka and tackle Chris Canty. Kiwanuka and Canty were working with the first team this morning during the brief portion of practice open to the media, and Umenyiora and Robbins were working with the second team.

                  I should also note that there was reportedly a report on the NFL Network this week (I didn’t see it, nor have I confirmed it, which is why I’m saying “reportedly a report”) that Umenyiora will only be used on passing downs. And after the way the Denver Broncos appeared to target him (and, at times, Canty) with their runs last Thursday, that probably shouldn’t be a surprise.

                  That shakeup is probably long overdue since the Giants’ defensive line has been shockingly ineffective lately. Robbins has had one sack this season and Umenyiora has only five. Neither of them have had a sack since the bye week. Of course Canty, who got a six-year, $42 million deal from the Giants in March and has only been back from injury for the last three games, is still looking for his first sack of the season. And Kiwanuka has just three sacks on the year, including none in the last four games.

                  Meanwhile, defensive tackle Rocky Bernard, he of the four-year, $16 million free agent contract, might be even farther down in the rotation. The Giants practiced a goal-line defense drill during the portion of practice we were allowed to watch and Bernard - - one sack this season, none in the last seven games - - wasn’t included.

                  Maybe we’ll get some more information on this shakeup when Tom Coughlin addresses the media in about an hour … though I wouldn’t count on it.

                  As for the rest of the defense, it appears to be as expected, but without safety Michael Johnson, who is missing his third straight day of practice with a strained groin. It appears that C.C. Brown will be reinserted into the starting lineup in Johnson’s place, with Aaron Ross picking up third safety duties in the dime defense.

                  Interestingly, when the Giants ran their second-team defense in practice while the media was present, they ran it with only 10 players. Nobody was filling the second safety spot.

                  I have no explanation for that. It’s hard to imagine they’re trying to hide something. It’s not as if the thought that they might promote Sha-reff Rashad or Vince Anderson off the practice squad to play on the second team would force the Cowboys to alter their game plan. And they’re not going to sign an impact safety this late in the week. In...

                  Odell to *****?

                  OBJ to ***** trade remains a possibility
                  Posted by Mike Florio on February 18, 2019, 7:38 PM EST

                  As the season ended, a sense emerged that the ***** could renew the pursuit of Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. A month and a half later, that sense persists.

                  The ***** have had real interest in Beckham for nearly a year; the only question is whether the Giants are willing to pull the trigger. As reflected by last week’s bold offseason prediction from Jay Glazer, the Giants may indeed be ready to do so.

                  The ***** hold the second and 36th overall picks in the 2019 draft; the No. 2 overall selection would seemingly be a high price to pay, possibly requiring the Giants to send maybe a third- or fourth-round pick back to the ***** to balance it all out.

                  The Rams also had interest last year in trading for Beckham. They instead made a deal for Brandin Cooks. But if the Rams want to make a big splash in 2019, they could (in theory) dangle someone like receiver Robert Woods to the Giants as part of the package.

                  However it all plays out, Glazer didn’t throw out the notion of a Beckham trade recklessly. Beckham remains in play for a trade (no matter what the Giants officially say), and the ***** remain on the short list of teams that could get him.
