Mark Cannizzaro, of the New York Post, reports a source out of Atlanta said the Atlanta Falcons interest in New York Jets franchise DE John Abraham is waning because of his price tag. The source said the Falcons, after doing a lot of research on Abraham, are not concerned with his supposed "character issues" and more concerned about the money. The source also said the Falcons would not trade their first-round pick in the NFL Draft for Abraham.

:? If that's the way it is, let him go to Broncos. Let the broncos figure out how they will replace their DL, sign Owens, and give up to much for Abraham. We don't need him more than a second pick. :wink: Where is this Jets leverage coming from?

From profootballtalk.com


BRONCOS CLOSING IN ON DEAL FOR ABRAHAM

A league source tells us that the Denver Broncos are closing in on a deal with the Jets to acquire the rights to defensive end John Abraham.

Per the source, the Broncos would send a first-round pick to the Jets for Abraham, and Abraham would then be signed to a deal worth $27 million over the first three years.

Published reports also have linked Abraham to the Falcons.

Stay tuned.

According to kffl.com we are meeting with Abraham next week...take it for what it's worth I suppose...I still doubt he lands here but the fact we are meeting with him means our interest hasn't waned to much....
