TheRidder Posted February 23, 2012 Share Posted February 23, 2012 John Abraham - DL - FalconsAfter speaking to the Falcons, the player rep for free agent DE John Abraham believes his client is headed for the open market.The Falcons are severing ties as Abraham goes on age 34. With no realistic in-house replacement, Atlanta will look to the draft and free agency for a new right defensive end. Pass rush was a problem for the Falcons in 2011, even with Abraham on the roster and Ray Edwards signed to play left defensive end. Mike Smith's defense tied for 22nd in sacks and ranked 20th against the pass.I think with this being said we have to go after a Top Tier DE.I say this because it is a make or break year for Smith and Company I think if we don't win a playoff game this year Mike Smith will be fired.So i think we will get one of these guys depending on who actually hits the market.In no particular orderRobert MathisMario WilliamsCalais CampbellCliff AvrilIf we don't get one of these guys our defense will be in real trouble with no Abraham.What do you all think?Because I don't want to see this anymore lolhttp://blogs.ajc.com/jeff-schultz-blog/files/2011/10/Packers_Falcons_Football.JP1.JPG Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
