Lughead Posted February 28, 2007 Share Posted February 28, 2007 A contract that he likes anyway Aurthur Staple Blog from NEWSDAY Strahan Staying Put... O'Hara and Feely? Not So Much Remember when we said a whole day ago that Shaun O'Hara's contract was just about done? Hmmm... Maybe not. The Giants and O'Hara's reps are, in the words of a person with knowledge of the negotiations, "butting heads" over the most recent offer. O'Hara no doubt feels he's worth something close to the six-year, $30-million (with a $10-million bonus) deal Andre Gurode got from the Cowboys; the Giants are offering roughly $8-million less and said to not be budging. Free agency begins about 51 hours from now, and O'Hara would be the top center available. These things do change rapidly, so we'll see who blinks first. The Giants are seemingly going to be searching for a kicker too, with some significant difference between their offer and what Jay Feely wants. There aren't too many youngish kickers on the FA market, so this could be a risky move. But it appears, for now, that Feely's going to hit the open market on Friday. That's not going to be the case for Michael Strahan -- and not just because he's under contract for two more years. A person in the know told my old buddy Blauber that the Giants won't be cutting or trading No. 92; Strahan may try to extract some more money from Jerry Reese when the two meet soon, but I can't really see how Strahan's going to do that. He's 35, he's played 1 1/2 of the last 3 seasons and did I mention he's 35? He can still be a valuable player, especially in a more aggressive defense that new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo may bring, so he won't be discarded. But I doubt he'll wrangle extra dough. By tomorrow, O'Hara and Feely could be signed and Strahan could be on his way out... It's that time of year. who is out there for Kickers? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
