Report: Giants offer Osi incentive-laden deal

Osi Umenyiora should be back on the practice field with the Giants come Monday. But the soap opera between he and the team isn't quite over yet.

There are still contract discussions to handle but it appears, as our own Clark Judge suggested recently, that the Giants are going to wise up get him some cash for finally coming in.

Unfortunately for Osi, though, it doesn't appear that they're willing to give as much as Clark suggested. Per Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, the Giants offered Osi a new incentive-laden deal on Friday that features "a range of $400,000 to $1 million in new money" dependent on production and incentives.

LaCanfora does note that Osi still prefers to be traded and has yet to accept any offers from the Giants. According to the report, Osi would need to finish in the top 10 of several defensive categories and time spent on the field.

Clearly, the requirements for those incentive clauses are going to primarily dictate whether or not Osi accepts the contract.

If he has to finish in the top 10 for sacks and forced fumbles while playing 10 games to unlock $1 million (and there aren't any poison-pill clauses in the deal), he might take it. Or at least consider taking it.

But unless it's good, don't be shocked if he passes and keeps pushing for a deal somewhere or a new, long-term deal. After all, there still plenty of teams that might be interested in Osi if the Giants actually drop their asking price. Meaning: the drama might not be over just quite yet.

Actually vut315...NO FANS have the right to talk $h!t ever.  They contribute nothing.  If you want to believe your cheerleading at the game wins championships, than have at it.  But you or no other fan ever has the right to brag about any accomplishments your team does. That being said, Eagles fans do seem to be the most foolish fans around. 
The Patriots and Steelers fans are much worse, or at least have been for years.  All the fanbases have knuckleheads and the more successful they are the, the more losers that come out of the woodwork trying to live vicariously through the teams.

The GB Packers right now have many morons that were nowhere to be found a year ago suddenly becoming very active and "proud" of their "accomplishments" of sitting on their asses while the Packers won an SB.

Trade Time

Osi should demand a trade ASAP!  This chump change the giants are offering is an insult.
