If he signs, that should help set the market for pass rushers.

Of the older pass rushers on the market, i like Osi the most. He would be a great pick up for ATL.

Still younger than Abraham and Freeney so he's got that going for him lol.

Although i hope we sign him and bring Abe back for a year or 2 more. Those 2 guys could still do some damage in the backfield together.

Falcons need the pass rush. And he could provide that. Depending on the deal, nice signing.

I'm not sure how much Umenyoira has left, but he still would be an excellent addition to a team that has literally no pass rusher on their roster at the moment. Having said that, this signing has a chance to be Ray Edwards 2.0.

This is where I thought he would end up all along. He already lives in Atlanta during the off season and he is going to a contender. Atlanta should be playing with a lead most games so with his speed playing in a dome, being able to pin his ears back and rush the passer, 10 sack season easily.
