The Atlanta Falcons bolstered their defensive line by signing Osi Umenyiora to a two year deal.

The USA Today reports that Umenyiora could make as much as $12.25 million over the length of the contract if he reaches all of his incentives.

The former Troy Trojan star had played his entire 10 year career with the Giants, and recorded 75 sacks during his time in New York.

Umenyiora is expected to replace John Abraham as the Falcons main disruptive pass rusher.
