Osi Umenyiora will finally get the love he’s been longing for. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Osi is expected to put his name on contract to play for the Atlanta Falcons either today or tomorrow:
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 move will end Osi’s decade with the Giants. He became a full-time starter in 2005. By 2012, he was mainly a part-time player, appearing in every game but starting only four.
In Atlanta, he’ll step into the spot created by the departure of John Abraham.
