The wait is finally over and Osi Umenyiora is an Atlanta Falcon, according to Jay Glazer.

The last time there was even a report on Umenyiora to the Falcons was about a week ago when he made his first official free agent visit with the team.
While this does help the Falcons woes at defensive end, don’t expect them to be content with position yet. Umenyiora has been one of the leagues top defensive ends over the past few years, but he will be 32 years old this year. You can almost expect the Falcons to look for more of a long-term answer at defensive end early in this year’s draft.
