Saints lose DT David Onyemata to the Falcons

Onyemata to sign a 3-deal year with Atlanta.

NFL: Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints just lost a key member of the team. Even worse they lost him to a division rival. Per reports, the Atlanta Falcons will sign DT David Onyemata to a 3-year $35 million deal. The deal has $24.5 million of it guaranteed over the first two years.

A big payday for the Saints top DT. The team will have to pivot and rebuild the DT group as the position was already thin for the Saints. One thing is for sure, game day versus the Falcons got even more interesting.
