Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports reports that the Falcons are asking Osi Umenyiora to take a pay cut.

Osi isn't likely to want to give back any of his 2014 salary given that he was still productive in 2013 (47 tackles, 7.5 sacks). The Falcons needs pass rushers so it remains to be seen if it's wise for the Falcons to take the risk of alienating the player they really need. Osi is due $3.5 million in the coming season.
