The slower-than-expected (at least by them) market for free agent defensive ends is starting to pick up.

With Dwight Freeney and John Abraham in Denver, Giants free agent defensive end Osi Umenyiora’s finally on the move too.

According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today, Umenyiora visited the Falcons today. There was an earlier report that the Dolphins had some interest, but this is his first trip.

While there’s no deal at the moment, Umenyiora seemed like a solid fit for the Falcons after they released Abraham, and there was plenty of talk around the league connecting the two.

Now, we’ll see if they make a connection.
