Notes: Osi Umenyiora, Falcons reach deal

The Atlanta Falcons found a replacement Wednesday for John Abraham by reaching an agreement with defensive end Osi Umenyiora on a two-year, $8.5 million contract.

The Falcons released the 34-year-old Abraham, who led the team with 10 sacks in 2012, on March 1. With the 31-year-old Umenyiora, the Falcons have a slightly younger replacement.
