Osi has wanted a new contract since his 2007 season. He was injured in 2008 and had a bad season in 2009. If he has a big season in 2010, I could see him chirping until he gets a new deal. Aaron Kampman, five months removed from an ACL injury, got $6.5 million per year. A big year for Osi and he'll want much more. The guy thinks he's a premier pass rusher even when he doesn't play like one. What do you think will happen when his game matches his mouth? On the flip side, if he has a bad year, he loses his value completely. It would be 3 bad years in a row and nobody would give you decent value for a talkative, sensitive, and underachieving player.
Kiwi will be a UFA in 2011. The only way he is an RFA is if there isn't a CBA in 2011. However, the point is moot because if there's no CBA, then there's probably a lockout. That would mean he'd just be a UFA in 2012 or whenever the CBA was finally instituted. If we don't trade him or sign him to a new deal, he's going to leave for nothing at the end of next season. With the influx of new D-linemen and Osi's return in 2009, he complained about being buried on the depth chart. He feels that he is a starter - rightly or wrongly - and I think he'd gladly take the opportunity to be one on another team, if he gets the chance.
So what do you guys think the Giants should do?
