That is just stupid money. A great moment not to be a Panther fan. I thought Jerry Richardson was smarter than that.

Actually that is pretty fair for a stud pass rusher.

regardless it is done now and you can bet that is the kind of money Osi want's as deal - around $12.6m/year.


Considering Osi is 29 and just has a few years left to cash in, I can see his point.
Lets be honest, when the market says you are worth $12.6m, would you play for a little over $3m?

The markets been set, there is no way we can afford that kind of money, time to trade Osi

This wasnt a good fit in the thread already talking about Osi and his holdout?

Anyways, I agree with Todd. Thats a lot of money for a one year wonder.

As far as Osi goes he isn't getting that from us. We are prepared to move on without him or let him holdout and be pissed off.

Didn't he only have one big season? That's too big of a gamble any way you look at it.

True, but he is a good young pass rusher and the best is still ahead of him.
and the Panthers wanted to lock him up and has plenty of cash they have to spend. Remember Jerry Richardson was shedding contracts last year.

In the end it doesn't matter, thats the kind of money Osi will expect (and probably get somewhere else)

Correct, Osi probably will get that kind of money and then the Giants should also get a ton of value in return because of it.

Be assured that Osi will have a lot of value, he is a premium pass rusher and could be what is needed to take teams to the next level.
