Reports are that the Atlanta Falcons are really interested in the Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora. The deal is expected to be completed before the end of the weekend and one that has Falcons fans really excited if they can land him. The Giants can afford to let him walk with Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck manning the defensive line. The Falcons on the other hand could really use a defensive lineman with the skill set such as Umenyiora’s.
Signing Umeyiora would mean a defensive end that’s experienced and understands how to pass rush and help out in stopping the run. A move to bring in a player like Umenyiora would be a great start in building up their defense after the offense has been taken care of. It is reported that Umenyiora and the Falcons have been in constant contact since Wednesday, which is leading me to believe that a contract signing is imminent. Stayed tuned and be on the lookout for the official free agent signing, we’ll be bringing the details when it happens.
