NFL News: Falcons Sign Osi Umenyiora. Raiders Keeping Carson Palmer "For Now"




The Atlanta Falcons have finally signed defensive end Osi Umenyiora after the two sides were reportedly close to a deal for the last week.


Last season with the New York Giants, Osi accounted for six sacks, 43 tackles, and two forced fumbles.


The Oakland  Raiders are now prepared to pay quarterback Carson Palmer’s $13 million salary after contemplating whether to cut him or not. Since being traded from the Cincinnati Bengals in 2011, the former #1-overall pick has played in 25 games while throwing 25 touchdowns to 30 interceptions at a 60% completion rate.

Oh yeah, and the Bengals got a first-rounder in 2011 and this year’s second-rounder (#37 overall) to basically dump his salary on the Raiders. Thanks again Oakland.


Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy will be released or traded for a late-round pick soon after the team signed Jason Campbell to a 2-year deal.


The Carolina Panthers have agreed to terms with linebacker Chase Blackburn, formerly of the New York Giants, on a two-year contract.


NFL.com’s Michelle Beisner reports free agent defensive end Dwight Freeney could wait until training camp to sign a new deal.


The Baltimore Ravens have re-signed restricted free agent defensive end Arthur Jones to a one-year, $2.023 million contract.


Detroit Lions safety Amari Spievey has been arrested on charges related to a domestic dispute.
