Falcons expected to keep Osi Umenyiora

The Atlanta Falcons are expected to keep defensive lineman Osi Umenyiora for the 2014 season according to Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

It’s hard to imagine that the Falcons would be willing to ditch Umenyiora after he recorded 7.5 sacks and was somewhat effective against the run.

Cutting Umenyiora would save the Falcons $3.5 million against the salary cap.
