Osi Umenyiora joined Chuck Smith (filling in for Jerome) & Jamie today to talk about the possibility of him signing with the Falcons. Osi has an offseason home here and is definitely interested in playing for the team.
He drove up to Arthur Blank’s office and is hopeful that they could work something out.”We’ll see how it plays out and hopefully we get in a positive direction.”
About the Falcons: “I’ve never seen a team with this much talent on offense. With a great Quarterback and receivers, and the addition of Steven Jackson is great. Defensively they are very good, Abraham was a good player, so they need a couple of pieces here and there but they are a very good football team.”
In regards to the other pass rushers on the market: “A rebuilding team is not going to sign me or Freeney or John Abraham. But if you’re a competitor like a New England or Atlanta, you can make that kind of move. You’re seeing a lot of movement out there now.”
