Updating a previous report, the Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms with free-agent DE Osi Umenyiora (Giants) on a two-year deal.
Huddle Up: This had been in the works for a while as Umenyiora will fill the pass-rushing gap vacated by the release of John Abraham. To do so, Umenyiora will have to bounce back from a 6-sack season in 2012 -- his lowest output aside from his 1-sack rookie year.

New York Giants DE Osi Umenyiora said he would prefer to finish out his career with the Giants, and there is a chance that could happen. 'There's a chance, absolutely,' Umenyiora told reporters in New Orleans on Thursday. 'Of course (there) is. Hopefully that'll happen. I prefer to finish out my career there. But there's a lot of things in play here. It's not going to be totally my decision. They're going to have some decisions to make also. It's going to be a collective effort. My agent's going to have his say. Hopefully things will work out there. I prefer to stay there.'
Huddle Up: This will be one of the more interesting storylines to follow this offseason as the Giants have some big decisions looming, including an extension for standout WR Victor Cruz.
