    "Abraham's off-the-field problems appear to be having an impact on his long-term future with the Jets. He's entering the final year of his contract, and there are strong indications the club is showing little or no interest in signing him to a long-term extension."

    the Ogunleye deal looms large in the eyes of the FO-let Abe prove 3 things
    1-he can stay healthy
    2-he can stay clean
    3-that he's worth the kind of $$ his agent will be asking
    and Sean Ellis is becoming the better choice-more consitent and canplay the run

    I think they're trying to sell newspapers. Id take it with a grain of salt.

    The success of Donnie Henderson's multiple-fronts defense is going to be largely determined by John Abraham having a big year. He's the "flex" guy who can play DE or LB in Donnie's schemes, and pretty much the ONLY guy right now on the roster that can (BT is debateable IMO right now).

    If Abe has a big year, I can see Donnie pushing hard to get the team to resign him.

    Is that the Absolut flu, the Stoli flu, or the always wonderful Smirnoff flu?

    exactly what i was thinking...if Abe goes, so goes our defensive scheme.

    As Parcells would say- "he's a she". No big payday unless he's on the field wreaking havoc all year. I hope so but I doubt it.

    Oh I know lets draft another DE in the first round...Yeah thats the solution. :ph34r:

    It's interesting to see that they have Abraham listed back at DE.

    Earlier they had him listed as a LB - which would have made sense if they were planning to use the Franchise tag on him (it's cheaper to pay the average of the top 5 LBs than the top 5 DEs....)

    Abe is a great player if he can stay on the field.

    They better not be passing him up for Ellis

    Why do I have the feeling that, although even at its present state with four first round picks, to keep all of our lineman would cost significantly more than the Panthers are paying for Rucker-Bucker-Jenkins-Peppers? Just doesn't seem fair...
