David Onyemata signs multi-year deal with Falcons

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Atlanta Falcons are signing DT David Onyemata to a three-year, $35-million deal.

Fantasy Impact

Onyemata will pair alongside DT Grady Jarrett to plug up the middle of Atlanta's defense. Onyemata had a down year in 2022 and missed time due to a PED-related suspension, but the athletic interior defender is a solid pass rusher and adds to a Falcons d-line that lacked production in 2022.
