John Abraham will visit Seahawks

Posted · Add Comment

John Abraham, who finished last season with more sacks than any active player in the NFL, will visit the Seattle Seahawks.

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Abraham is en route to Seattle and that a “few trips” could follow this visit.

The Falcons released Abraham on Friday and the 13-year veteran would like to continue his career. He drew interest from the Denver Broncos and Tennessee Titans in free agency last March before re-signing with the Falcons. Seattle would like to upgrade its pass rush.

The Falcons saved $5.75 million vs. the salary cap by letting Abraham depart.
