The Atlanta Falcons, looking to fill a void at defensive end after releasing veteran John Abraham in early March, are bringing New York Giants free agent Osi Umenyiora on board, according to a Pro Football Talk report.

Umenyiora, who lives in the Atlanta area during the offseason, has spent his nine-year career with the Giants.

Citing a source with knowledge of the situation, PFT reported that Umenyiora is expected to join the Falcons on Sunday or, at the latest, on Monday.

He has 75 sacks and played for two Super Bowl championship teams, twice has been named All-Pro and has been selected to a pair of Pro Bowls.
