Chris Mortensen Sees Osi Being Traded

Mort seems to know something that no other news outlet or reporter knows: Osi Umenyiora is likely to be traded this off-season. We've discussed it at length but it was all conjecture. According to Mort, it's approaching reality.

Trading a former All-Pro pass rusher is no small matter, especially when you consider how valuable pass rushers are to the Giants' success. Would a trade be an indication of the team's disdain for Osi Umenyiora or their belief in Mathias Kiwanuka's development? The Giants had Jason Pierre-Paul visit them. Are they seriously considering him? Was it posturing to hide their real interest in Derrick Morgan? I don't know the answers to these questions. Regardless, if you consider Mort to be credible, which I do, then what was previously water cooler talk is now legitimate pre-draft discussion.

These are Mortensen's tweets from this evening:

On The Mort Report on ESPN Radio, I mentioned 3 teams for possible Giants' Osi Umenyiora trade: Dolphins, Rams & Panthers

@TJCarpenterShow No juice for 'Skins to get Osi. 'Fins, Rams & Panthers are interested in Osi.

I think Giants can get a 2nd-round pick for Osi if things fall right. The Rams' pick at top of 2nd would be very attractive.

RT @JayKiser23: @mortreport alot of quality DL in draft, Rams should keep 2nd rd pick. >> Osi best year with Spagnuolo; 2 yrs on contract

And the coup de grâce...
