A 35 year old slow 4-3 DE would not be a good fit for our new 3-4... Too small to play on the line and too slow to make the move to LB...

Abraham's not looking like much of a fit for anyone. The only way he's going to play this year is if a team has a whole bunch of injuries on their DL.

If the Von Miller suspension stands wouldn't be surprised to see him(Abraham) on a one year deal at the Broncos depending on cap hit.

The cowpies just lost a couple of DL guys too.... This is not drama by the way.

Feel sorry for any player going down for the season before camp really starts.

Just because our incompetent GM let him go, doesn't mean he's not good.

10 sacks with no help.
There's a reason he was let go and is still a free agent...
