RT @MikeGarafolo: Osi Umenyiora has made his first visit. It was today with the Atlanta Falcons. No word on a signing yet.

Don't really like this. Id prefer doom freeney or abe to go with a rookie 1st rounder.

Doom is probably out of the picture. I think one of Freeney, Abe, or Osi (Osi being my prediction) will sign and then you'll see Dimitroff grab a second DE early in the draft.

I like this. Osi is a hungry player and can be very impactful if used the right way

On what basis do you say doom is out of the pic? I think his accidental release is a blessing you can't pass up.

Meh. Osi is a huge diva and hasn't played too well for the last few years. Don't want. I'd rather see Abe back.

If we're willing to make somewhat of a splash, make it Freeney. I'd love to see Doom, but I don't think that'll happen.

I'm guessing you don't realize Freeney and especially Doom will be wayyyy to expensive. We are cutting it somewhat close on cap

Osi was the last of the DEs on the market I expected us to go after, but I'm intruiged. Atleast we're making some sort of attempt at bringing in one of the vet DEs. Shame that it probably wont be Abe at this point

Completely agree. Money will be the deciding factor and there's someone out there willing to pay Doom probably twice what we could afford. Osi would be ideal for the right price, but I would be happy with anyone that doesn't eat up the rest of our cap.

Oh no, I realize that. Doom defiantly, but a man can still dream about Freeney. He hasn't gotten any takers yet, so it's not impossible that he could still come.

I just really don't want Osi.

He's about the best on the market. One could argue Freeney or Abe, but maybe Osi fits what Nolan wants. Idk the situation but if they want Osi over those other two, I don't have a problem with it personally..

Too expensive.

Osi is a shell of the former player. The guy I want hasn't even been mentioned all offseason, but he will be in my comprehensive offseason mock tomorrow, or when I sober up.

Finally, someone who agrees with me. Anxious to hear what you think, I haven't been too thrilled with all the FA options not named Freeney.
