Titans Unlikely To Sign DE John Abraham?


Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean suggests that the Titans are unlikely to sign free agent DE John Abraham, despite the fact that they’ve considering the idea of adding him for a few weeks now.

“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.
