Falcons | Osi Umenyiora in reserve role?

Tue, 17 Dec 2013 18:00:30 -0800

Atlanta Falcons DE Osi Umenyiora played just 27 snaps in a reserve role in Week 15 against the Washington Redskins, working as a designated pass rusher. DE Jonathan Massaquoi started in Umenyiora's usual spot. Head coach Mike Smith is trying to keep Umenyiora fresh, and after a meeting with head coach Mike Smith, defensive coordinator Mike Nolan indicated Tuesday, Dec. 17, that the veteran was content with the move. "I thought he did an outstanding job in the game when he did go in," Nolan said. "He was fresher. He was better prepared for the third down because of that. You know, when you play every down, it can wear on you."

Falcons | Jonathan Massaquoi shows tremendous speed

Wed, 11 Jul 2012 21:12:38 -0700

The Atlanta Falcons felt fifth-round DL Jonathan Massaquoi was better suited to play at 260 pounds instead of the 275 pounds he played during his senior season at Troy. Massaquoi showed off tremendous speed during the team's full minicamp in June thanks to the new weight. "Now I've got to allow my position coach and defensive coordinator to re-analyze that and put me in the right position to make plays," Massaquoi said.
