Report: Osi Umenyiora expected to sign with the Falcons

According to, free agent defensive end Osi Umenyiora is expected to sign with the Atlanta Falcons either Sunday or Monday.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Umenyiora is expected to join the Falcons on Sunday or, at the latest, on Monday.

“Atlanta is the place,” the source said.

The Falcons are the perfect fit for Umenyiora.  They need an elite pass rusher and he loves Atlanta.  We know this because his primary residence is there and he even told a local radio station that it would be better to win in Atlanta than New York, where he won two Super Bowls.
