Here's something from the National Football Post that indicates if the Giants get South Florida pass-rushing freak Jason Pierre-Paul, they'll start getting calls for their incumbent pass rusher Osi Umenyiora.
It's not outlandish, since they'll have a whole day between the first and second round to mull any phone queries, likely from St. Louis, Carolina, or Miami. But I'm sticking with my prediction that Umenyiora goes no place.
Remember, as Ernie Accorsi said when he surprised everyone and drafted Mathias Kiwanuka in 2006, "You can never have too many pass rushers." And, as to this idea that Kiwanuka's upcoming free agency at the end of next year could force the Giants to unload Umenyiora, who is signed though 2012, here's an idea. Let the two of them battle it out for the starting job in training camp, and then pay off big for Kiwanuka if he warrants it after the season. If Umenyiora responds with a big year, the value of keeping him around will rise higher than Kiwanuka's, anyway. And if Umenyiora doesn't respond with a big year, you can still probably get a third, fourth, or fifth-round pick for him after next season.
Better to put it all off until after next season, in other words. But then, I'm not the general manager.
