Falcons | Osi Umenyiora to pass rush
Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said DE Osi Umenyiora will be the designated pass-rusher in their defense. Umenyiora has dropped 10 pounds to 250 pounds for this season. "I hope (his regular-season reps) are a lot. That means they're throwing a lot and that means we're in the lead," Smith said. "In a 60-play game, you're looking somewhere in between 25 to 35 (snaps.) He'll be fresh. I think it will be a very good thing. And I think at the end of last season, when we put him in as a defensive pass-rusher and that's all he was doing and his number of snaps went down, I thought he was much more productive."
