    Abraham retiring

    Had some friends tell me Abraham tweeted he is retiring. Offers simply not good enough to play this year. He is of course negotiating, but seems if the offers dont improve, he is thinking about it.

    Wow.  Could be a leverage move to get a team to up their offer.  If he's serious, I feel like it's kind of a stubborn move.  3-4 million for a guy who was probably going to be a sub-rusher at the age of 35 is not bad money.

    On the other hand, I just saw this online that states the tweets weren't anything serious but just simple frustration.  Seems kind of immature to me.

    I have some friends who told me he is going to wait till camp is over and sign on with a contending team as a pass rushing specialist.

    I'll believe it when it happens officially.  The fact that he deleted the tweets seems like evidence that he would still like to play this year and is just trying to get some more money.  Time will tell.

    To put it in context - what if you went in to work tomorrow and your boss said ... sorry, but we just don't think you are worth what you were making yesterday. So here is a new contract for 30% of the salary you used to make - you can sign it, or we really wish you well in whatever you do next. Have a nice day.

    It takes a while to get your head around the reality of the market for a player like Abraham or Freeney. Nothing 'immature' about it and not that surprising they would find it frustrating.

    I know you think based on last year Abraham still has gas left in the tank.


    Correct.

     


    But I would like more than a 1 and done player at the end of the line... 



    A legitimate concern although I'm hoping the development of some of our young guys (Jones in particular) might help alleviate that.  I liked him as as a stopgap in the short term.

    This is kinda what Waters did. He wanted more than Vets min and said if not I'll stay home and pack it in. I don't think we have a spot for Abraham anyway.

    I hope the Collins draft is the end of the Abraham thought. I would also like to see as many camp reps go to Bequette as possible.  

     

     



    I'm in on this.  I want to see what cannon and Bequette have this year.
