Falcons Want Osi Umenyiora To Take Pay Cut
Osi Umenyiora is not going to be pleased about this, but I don’t think he has much of a choice.
Falcons are asking DE Osi Umenyiora to take a pay cut, source tells @FOXSports1. Slated to make $3.5m in '14. We'll see how this resolves.

Umenyiora spoke last month about wanting to remain in Atlanta.
He signed a two-year, $8.5 million contract last offseason, a deal with a max value of $12 million. Umenyiora, who turns 33 in November, is due to count $4.75 million against the salary cap in 2014.
