Agent for Falcons DE John Abraham says he's spoken to Falcons and believes the DE is bound for free agency. #NFL.com/#NFLNetwork.— Steve Wyche (@wyche89) February 22, 2012
Abraham has led the Atlanta Falcons in sacks in five of the last six seasons. With 9.5 during the 2011 season, he just missed out on again notching double-digit sacks for the season. Abraham is set to turn 34 this offseason, and it doesn't make a lot of sense for the Falcons to invest in a big contract with Abraham or to use the franchise tag on the defensive end, which would cost the Falcons about $10.6 million.
