Falcons | Osi Umenyiora likely to return
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 10:12:04 -0800
Atlanta Falcons DE Osi Umenyiora is likely to return to the team for the 2014 season, despite his $4.5 million salary for the upcoming year. Falcons head coach Mike Smith lauded Umenyiora's work on an off the field, saying he did an "outstanding job" as a player and mentor. Smith added that while he "never would say never," he looks forward to continuing to work with the veteran pass rusher.
Atlanta desperately needs pass-rushing threats, so this is a logical move on their part. Even still, the Falcons are a ways off from being a reliable fantasy defense.
