“All those clamoring for a John Abraham signing should brace themselves for disappointment,” tweets Wyatt. “The money Dwight Freeney got didn’t help things.”
Freeney signed a two-year deal with the Chargers, but the only reason they had any interest was because Melvin Ingram suffered a serious knee injury. The Titans currently have Kamerion Wimbley and Derrick Morgan manning their starting end spots, which means Abraham would most likely be relegated to playing the role of a situational pass rusher for them next season.
Tennessee currently has close to $6 million in cap space to work with, but have yet to sign a single draft pick, so it’s not likely they would commit much in terms of salary to a guy who would only be on the field in certain situations.
Abraham, 34, has found very little interest since being released by the Falcons a few months ago. He met with the Patriots a few weeks into free agency and also found some interest from teams like the Dolphins and Broncos, but both of them have since added a defensive end to their rosters.
We have Abraham listed as the No. 3 player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
