Umenyiora Wants to be a Falcon, Pro Football Talk Says He Will Be

Fact: Osi Umenyiora's favorite colors are red, black, and light purple

For what it's worth, Usi Umenyiora digs Atlanta. He thinks we're pretty awesome - hopefully that counts for something.

“New York fans definitely expect a lot out of you because of their history,” Umenyiora said. “There was nothing better than to be able to win there. The only thing I can think of that would be better than being able to win in New York would be to be able to win here in Atlanta. We’ll see how that plays out. Hopefully, it works out in a positive direction.”

UPDATE: Pro Football Talk is reporting the deal could be done Sunday or Monday. There's been a lot of smoke here, and while one report does not a confirmation make, this is starting to sound likelier by the hour. Stay tuned.

No doubt about it, he's saying all the right things. It would appear he likes Atlanta. It would also appear he's willing to leave New York. To be frank, the signing is taking longer than I'd expected it to. The visit itself was Wednesday, then there were rumors about him undergoing a physical Thursday or Friday. I'll feel better about the world once his contract is officially inked. There are reports saying it's imminent, which is good, because if it doesn't happen soon, Dave may find himself in a mental hospital awaiting commitment.
