According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the Falcons have asked defensive end Osi Umenyiora to take a pay cut.
Falcons are asking DE Osi Umenyiora to take a pay cut, source tells @FOXSports1. Slated to make $3.5m in '14. We'll see how this resolves.

With Umenyiora at the point in his career where he really isn’t a full time player, he may want to just take a pay cut to stay in Atlanta rather then test free agency.
