league min 1 year playing time and performance based contract. ONLY

he aint what he use to be.
Man you're in a great mood today!

You're exactly right, we need youth and stamina for four quarters, plus...

And he's a one trick pony defensive end which is slightly better than Will Smith who just kinda stretches and lays there...

Wow, couldn't be a guy I was less interested in. He is done when it comes to the game and he's probably one of the most incoherent individuals I've ever heard.

If he's lost a step, yet still recorded 10 sacks like he did last year, I say give him a nice little 2 year deal. l guess nobody remembers him being the only player terrorizing Brees on the Falcons D the past several years.

I don't remember that at all. We've handled him OK for the last several years.

He's 35 and battled injuries practically all season long this past year - and you want to give him a 2-year contract?!

Also remember....Falcons played one of, if not the, easiest schedule in the NFL last season....I wouldn't put much stock in those sacks. ANd he's HORRIBLE against the read option. He's old and injury prone.....no thanks.

He's just stopping by for some gumbo and a Sazerac cocktail or two. He'll be dirty bird'n it home in time for dinner.

why not? We signed Darren Sharper when he was that age. If he's not better then what we've already got you're fooling yourself. It doesn't matter if he's horrible with the option. The rest of the D is horrible at everything. Nobody is saying break the bank on him, but if he wants to come end his career with a ring I believe he's a good veteran leader and upgrade. Its 2 years. Not the 5 we just gave Drew, who is practically just as old.

Sharper and Brees aren't exactly good comparisons for Abrahams - an old player who got released in the middle of his contract.

Minnesota wanted to keep Sharper, but couldn't afford to. He was putting up good numbers for them through his contract, and would've probably continued to do so if he had re-signed with them.

Brees' situation with the Chargers is known by all of us, so there's no need to go over it again here, but I'd like to point out that he didn't have a history filled with injuries before the infamous shoulder injury, the surgery was done by the best in the business, and he passed the medicals before signing with the Saints.

From what I've gathered, Abrahams doesn't have the same type of character as Brees does when it comes to training and keeping himself in peak condition to avoid future injuries, so them being about the same age isn't really anything I'd consider as a favorable comparison to Abrahams.

Anyway, he might be a good veteran presence at vet minimum (I'm doubtful), but I'd prefer that roster spot to be filled by a young player who could be a future contributor in the black and gold.
