During a radio interview with the Jamie and Jerome Show on 92.9 The Game in Atlanta, free agent defensive end Osi Umenyiora said that winning in Atlanta would be better than winning in New York.
“New York fans definitely expect a lot out of you because of their history,” Umenyiora said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, via the New York Daily News. “There was nothing better than to be able to win there. The only thing I can think of that would be better than being able to win in New York would be to be able to win here in Atlanta. We’ll see how that plays out. Hopefully, it works out in a positive direction.”
It was reported on Friday that the Falcons were going to make a push to sign Umenyiora to a contract this weekend. Osi is doing his part by talking up the city of Atlanta. I’m sure Giants’ fans are insulted that he would say winning in Atlanta will be better, but you do have to remember he lives there.
