Looks like this deal is all but done. Cam's not gonna be too happy about this. I know I'm not.

Umenyiora was named to the Pro Bowl after the 2005 and 2017 seasons

Eh. Not that worried about it, honestly. Osi may get to him a couple of times, but he's not going to blow our offense up by himself. I'm thinking G-man (that's what I call him, because we're bros) has plans to improve our OL, which is really our biggest weak spot offensively. Sure, the WR corps could be better, but between Smitty, Olsen, Lafell, and the recent arrival of Ginn, not to mention our options out of the backfield, it could be a LOT worse there (and I still think we'll pick up a receiver in the draft).

Well, call me crazy, but I'd rather that man not be in our division at all.

The falcons are going all in on this season. They'll still choke in the playoffs once again though.

Osi's not what he once was. ATL getting him doesn't concern me at all. I'd rather they had Osi than Abraham.

i bet they go DL in the draft though

The old get older. That defense could possibly be amongst the league worst this year.

Osi is in the twilight of his career, this is a lateral move in respect to Abraham.

Our DE's are the most fearsome in the division. Osi isn't a big deal and I don't think he can even rush as well as Arbraham did.

Agree with those that say Osi is not as good as who they dumped in Abraham. I don't think they will be improved on defense.

compare osi's 2012 on a much better defensive line to abraham's and get back to me.

unless julius peppers is somewhere in this draft they're going to have a worse pass rush.

Without those two, if he came here he would be the best free agent we had 7 years.
