Whats going to happen with Osi?

Post  Big_Pete on Sun Apr 29, 2012 7:38 am

The draft is in the books and Osi is still a giant.

Osi is still unhappy and Reese is open to options (although his preference is to keep Osi).
The recent extension of Kiwanuka (creating somewhere in the vicinity of $3.5m-$4m in cap room) may impact Osi's future.

So what do think will happen?

1. Osi is traded for 2013 a draft pick/s

2. Osi is traded for a player (who?)

3. Osi gets a contract extention.

4. Osi playes out his current deal and leaves in free agency next offseaon.

If Osi gets traded, I think it will be for a player.


How about for T Jake Long?

Miami drafted T Jonathan Martin and their GM made a few interesting comments
"We're not going to be as much a power scheme as we've been in the past," Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland said. "So his athletic ability and quickness and ability to play in space transfers to this scheme probably a lot better than any other scheme."

Their new coach Philbin puts a premium on mobility and not as much on the brute strength that Parcells and Sparano wanted.
"Maybe they valued a bigger, 345-pound offensive lineman," Philbin said this week, "where we really didn't play with a whole lot of those guys in Green Bay. "

Jake Long is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

He is a four time pro bowler, but he has also had a few health issues. His knee has troubled him a little for a couple of seasons now. His right shoulder had to be repaired after 2010, while last year it was a torn biceps that sidelined him for the final two games.

Long is only 26 and very experienced.

He is scheduled to make $11.2m this year; obviously we would need to sign him to an extension.
We had somewhere around $2m of cap space heading into the draft + $4m from Kiwi's extenstion is quite possibly enough to work out a deal for Long.

Long's $11.2m gives plenty of room for Osi's extension and teaming Umenyiora with Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon for rotation plus their big DTs is going to be rather effective.

That rumor is false and just plain stupid. Miami is not going to trade their probowl LT.

Now Realistically we may be able to trade Osi for some draft picks and/or possibly get a RT or LG outta the deal. Think guys who are recent disappointments like Jason Smith from the Rams, Eben Britton from Jacksonville, Brandon Albert from Kansas City are some examples of guys who might be available. Its tough to guess those kinds of trades but if I'm Reese I'd look to move Osi for a draft pick and a player like that.

I could see KC trading Branden Albert for Osi Umenyiora

Scott Pioli does make trades and the Chiefs could use a quality pass rusher. Crennel would love to have Umenyiora on their team. With big bodies like Dontari Poe, Glenn Dorsey, Tyson Jackson, Jerell Powe, Allen Bailey and co up front and Taba Hali, Osi Umenyiora and Justin Houston outside, they have the makings of a very good defense. Probably enough to give them a good shot at the AFC West.
Osi gives them that proven veteran leadership this defense could use.

Branden Albert is in the last year of his rookie deal. There was talk they were considering moving him inside.

The Chiefs signed RT Eric Winston plus they drafted athletic tackles in the 2nd (Jeff Allen) and 3rd rounds (Donald Stephenson) of the draft.

KC also have $18.1 million in cap space (as of 21 April), so can lock up Osi

Albert is scheduled to make $2,717,500, but will likely want his pay day.

This trade would save us around $1.27m which added to the $2.6m we have (as of 21/4), plus we save around $1.5m with Kiwanuka's extension.

We would then a little over $8m available, which should be more than enough to work out a decent contract extension (plus change) or rework other deals.

Actually DT Glenn Dorsey is another option with the chiefs. He is also in the last year of his deal and has a $6.431m salary for 2012
