Mortensen: Odds Of the Giants trading Osi Umenyiora “60-40?

Chris Mortensen was asked by a Twitter user what the odds were of an Osi Umenyiora trade. He said:

60-40 he’s traded, maybe higher

I still can’t see a trade happening. Osi is in a team friendly contract, and unless they get a great return, I can’t see it happening. More from Mort:

I think Giants can get a 2nd-round pick for Osi if things fall right. The Rams’ pick at top of 2nd would be very attractive.

The Rams pick, 33, would be attractive. With this being a deep draft, the Giants can easily get another 1st round talent. Who else is interested, Mort?

‘Fins, Rams & Panthers are interested in Osi

If the Giants are serious about trading Osi, I think it means that Osi has become a locker room cancer. You don’t trade a top defensive end in his  prime, unless there is something else behind it. We know that Osi has his issues with Bill Sheridan, but he’s gone, and I think that Perry Fewell will be a good fit with Osi. Even though Osi had a down year last year, he’s still a top pass rusher, and I see no reason as to why he would be traded.

If they trade Osi, then Mathias Kiwanuka would step in as starter (side note: Do you think the year at linebacker hurt Kiwanuka?). You would have to think they would use one of those two picks on a linebacker (Which makes the Jason Pierre-Paul visit very interesting). If they get the Rams’ 2nd round pick, their first two rounds could be: Rolando McClain, Carlos Dunlap, Jahvid Best. I would be okay with that, but I would rather have Osi than Dunlap, Pierre-Paul or Derrick Morgan.
