Since Osi Umenyiora joined the Falcons in the offseason, he has quickly shown the rest of the team's young defensive ends what it takes to be a NFL pass rusher.
Umenyiora observed his new teammates at OTAs and talked about the progress the have made.
His Super Bowl was part of the decision by the Falcons in the offseason to add Umenyiora to the team.
The team is looking for that type of leadership along with the two-time Pro Bowler’s production.
"They’re maturing," Umenyiora said, via Daniel Cox of Atlantafalcons.com.
"They’re maturing very, very fast. Malliciah (Goodman) is a good player. (Jonathan) Massaquoi is very good also. These are going to be tremendous football players in this league."
"It’s my job to help them," he said. "I don’t have too much longer. It’s unlikely I’ll play another 10 years. All I can do is give them all the knowledge that I have now and try to make them better. They’re my younger brothers."

In NFL football, lineman depth on either side of the
ball is something you can never have too much of. And for the last few
seasons, the Atlanta Falcons have been surprisingly successful despite their lack of depth on the line—especially on defense.
With some new faces in camp, the Falcons hope to solidify the rotation on that D-Line, but there is still room for more help.
Came across this great youtube video which tells the story of Falcons LB Brian Banks. Give it a watch, Banks himself tweeted: "Wow! I had to upload this! Even I'm inspired. Please #retweet.. Please #Watch.." about the video.
Get that work done Juan…
