Another veteran player is on their radar as Osi Umenyiora made his first visit as a free agent to the Falcons, according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today.
There are a handful of veteran defensive ends on the market, including Umenyiora, Abraham, Dwight Freeney and Elvis Dumervil. The market hasn’t been great, either, as we’ve seen with what happened for a younger player like Cliff Avril.
Umenyiora, 31, had six sacks last season for the Giants and nine in 2011. That last time he reached double-digits was 2010 when he had 11 ½. He can help someone and after playing in New York, Umenyiora would probably like to land with a contender. The Miami Dolphins have reportedly shown interest in him as well.
