    Rumours: Ravens offer a third round pick for Osi



    https://twitter.com/#!/TheHuddleRepo...87252048986112

    Never heard of it before, but then again, a "guy at work" was right about suggs.

    At first i thought the yanda deal was for breathing room after the reason jones signing bringing us to practically zero cap left, but maybe now it may be to create room for osi.

    Not sure how i feel about it, yes its a great move in the short term, but what would happen when suggs comes back, and then of course theres the question of how he fits in a 3-4, would it mean we go more to a 4-3 etc...

    But again all just rumours, no definate reports of an offer yet...

    Noooo.....

    Umenyiora doesn't even play the same position as Suggs and does not carry the same diversity of talents as Suggs in any form. I'd rather stick with McPhee. He's cheaper, won't strap our cap leverage, and won't cost us a 2012 3rd rounder. Also, he's assured of being a Raven in 2013. Umenyiora will be a one year rental---no chance of his salary demands being met by management this offseason.

    It wouldn't hurt the rotation, I feel like they ar bulking up on DT, so we might see more 4-3 than 3-4 this year.

    Re: Rumours: Ravens offer a third round pick for Osi

    I can't even imagine having Osi and Sizzle when he comes back. Even if it was just for a rental, our pass rush would be ridiculous. For those who say he doesn't fit the scheme, Suggs had his hand in the dirt almost every down last year. Plus, we would probably play a lot more nickle based defense. With that said, I don't know how he fits in our current cap situation...

    If I were the Ravens, I'd pass and take my chances with what they have already. I'd like to think maybe Upshaw and the others can suffice while Suggs is out.

    This actually isn't true. Suggs was almost a perfect 50/50 split between down lineman and two-point linebacker last year, a true DE/OLB. In 2009 and 2010 he was a DE 90% of the time in Mattison's 4-3 scheme. But under Pagano (and presumably Pees who has an extensive history in the 3-4) we are much more of a hybrid.

    I expect that we may even be slanted more towards the 3-4, perhaps 70/30, this year given the personnel and change at DC. So the scheme fit is definitely a concern. Osi has also said he wants to be a starter and is unhappy being a nickel guy in New York, so why would he come here to continue to be a nickel guy?

    I absolutely don't see the fit here at all. Osi wants to start this year and get a gigantic contract in 2013. I'm not sure where he fits here in terms of X's and O's, and I certainly don't think he'll get the 200 million or whatever he thinks he's worth from the Ravens.

    The ravens wont deal for him unless they have come to terms with Osi on an extension.

    Isn't Osi still looking for a big contract? Yeah no. Pass please.

    That rumor is a week old. It would have happened if it were true.

    Re: Rumours: Ravens offer a third round pick for Osi

    Another rumor : My sister-in-law got a paying job. So far it is only back-fence gossip, but Mrs. Klein says that her next door neighbor (Mrs. Martino) told her that it is true. That started when Frankie also told his wife that Osi would sign with the Ravens. Both were products of a couple shots of Jack Daniels and Bud Lites... Bc

    Osi is due 3.975 in base salary for 2012 FYI.

    We aren't signing him long term, and in that case won't be giving up a 3rd or 4th for a 1 year rental.

    All the Giants fans in my office who asked me about it last Friday. At least 4 of them talked to me about it. I was told someone on WFAN which is the local sports radio station, mentioned it.

    By the way, all 4 thought it was too low and that the Ravens were so desperate they'd give a 1st round pick. I laughed that off telling them they don't know Ozzie if they think that would ever happen.

    Re: Rumours: Ravens offer a third round pick for Osi

    I would do it if Osi plays without an extension. You get a one year rental on a top tier player who wants a big contract, who you aren't going to NEED to retain in 2013-forward since Suggs will be 100% at that time. I am not a believer that Kruger/Kindle/Upshaw are going to provide adequate production in Suggs/JJ spots. I don't think it will happen though. Not the Ravens style.

    The problem with Osi is that he's nuts. Anyone read his comments about maybe letting his kids play football but then not letting them play football and how he'll be in wheelchair by the time he's 40 but he won't quit.....The guy is a real handful. Would he play without an extension? Who knows? The only thing that makes players like that see the light is when the offers dry up.

    Eventually Osi will do a Ricky Williams and become a really good and productive backup player. For know though you have to be willing to deal with his personality if you want his talent.
