Because his contract is voided, does that mean we will get a compensatory pick for him next offseason? Just trying to look at the bright side of things.

Anyways, Osi has always been one of my favorite Giants. He had a great career as a Giant, and got two rings. I hope someone pays him this offseason.

He would have been one of my all time favorites if he didn't run his mouth about everything. I loved him as a player (back when he cared) but him off the field just made me shake my head.

Osi was at times potentially the best RDE in the NFL, and other times he appeared ordinary. Sorry to see him leave, but he did a fine job while here. Yes I can see the Giants going DE in the draft. As presently consituted I still think we are the best team in the division.

I'm fairly sure that the Giants worded and sorted his contract like this so that they would get a comensatory pick. Osi had an option to pick up the last year of his contract, but it was at sub-1m, so he would be near enough guaranteed to reject it. Therefore, the failure to re-sign lies with Osi, and the Giants are entitled to a compensatory pick.

Thanks for your time with us Osi, and good luck in the future

Hopefully someone pays him so we can get a 4th round pick. Very Happy

I understand everything now, the Giants will get a comp pick from Osi and then trade all their picks next years for Overall pick #2 and get Jadeveon Clowney. It all makes sense now. Laughing
