Osi, a steal for the Jets?

Today Osi came out on the record that he believes the Giants screwed him out of top money for his position during his last contract. So it got me thinking about how we have a need at OLB and he has a need to get the hell out of dodge. Now despite the fact that he is a 4-3 DE I think he has the potential to make the shift to a 34 OLB.

(Heavily edited part)

So, with Osi throwing up a red flag stating on the record the Giants promised a better deal or a trade in 2008 if he played at a high level. Now we know he went down after getting injured in a game with the Jets in the preseason.  Personally I believe that after what Osi has openly told the courts his time with the Giants is going to be either over or warming a bench. My question is if Osi is being thrown out of town(kinda like Holmes during his time), should we go after him? Since I originally posted this NFLN challenged Osi's toughness during the last season. Last year he produced 11.5 sacks, 10 FFs, and about 48 tackles, however looking at his career he seems to seesaw between impressive numbers and then decent numbers. I think that Osi can be useful in our defense, with our hybrid 34/43 moving him into the rotation as a DE and more importantly helping us at the OLB position. Now, from what I saw of him on the rare occasion he has trouble with double teams, he gets consumed by them so that is a problem but with a talents group around him in a new setting. (Well new team same stadium... you get the idea.) I think that he could have a fresh start. Of course this is only if the Giants consider throwing him out under the bus for actively bashing his boss but hey this is lockout football news you gotta speculate somewhere.
