|Falcons likely to keep Osi Umenyiora |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(2/20/14) It appears the Falcons will hold onto defensive end Osi Umenyiora, who had 7.5 sacks last year. Umenyiora, 32, would count $3.5 million against the cap in 2014.
Coach Mike Smith said Umenyiora did an "outstanding job" in his first season with Atlanta. "I am never gonna say never," Smith said, "but I'm looking forward to continuing to work with him."

(2/11/14) Defensive end Osi Umenyiora is interested in staying with the Falcons. He signed a two-year, $8.5 million deal with them last summer and is due to count $4.75 million against the cap. A restructure might be in order.
"My eyes have been opened: I understand the business pretty much as well as anybody in football right now because of a lot of the things that have happened," Umenyiora said per ESPN. "And I know it's nothing personal."
Umenyiora had 7.5 sacks last year, leading Atlanta. He also forced three fumbles.
|Former teammate urging Justin Tuck to stay with Giants |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/1/14) Osi Umenyiora does not believe former Giants teammate and fellow defensive end Justin Tuck should follow his path out of town.
Umenyiora bolted for Atlanta in free agency last year, but has urged Tuck to stay with his current team.
"I've talked to Justin and I told him he should try whatever he can to stay in New York," Umenyiora said via The Star-Ledger. "Because he is New York."
Tuck will likely talk money with the Giants soon, but seems destined for free agency. His stock rose when he piled up 8 1/2 sacks in the last five games this season.

Unless you're a tackle like Eugene Monroe or a DB like Jairus Byrd, big money ain't there. If you're a WR (unless you're Eric Decker), forget it.
NFL Rumors: The Dolphins are interested in plenty of left tackles
As we make our way toward free agency on March 11, here were the news, reports and rumors that happened on Wednesday.
|The Falcons found a replacement for John Abraham by signing Osi Umenyiora this offseason. The Falcons released the 34-year-old Abraham, the team leader with 10 sacks in 2012, on March 1. The 31-year-old Umenyiora gives the Falcons a slightly younger replacement at defensive end, but his production has declined in recent years. He had six sacks for the Giants in 2012 and started four of 16 games. He had 55 tackles, five for losses, and a forced fumble. He had a career-high 14.5 sacks in 2005, when he was a first-team All-Pro selection. But he has reached double figures in sacks once in the last four years -- 11.5 in 2010. He has 75 sacks, 31 forced fumbles and 13 fumble recoveries in his career and helped the Giants win two Super Bowls. He set an NFL record with 10 forced fumbles in 2010 and a Giants record with six sacks in a 2007 win over Philadelphia. Consider him a No. 2 defensive lineman worth a mid-round pick.
