According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network via NFL.com, a source told him that Abraham isn’t retiring. He’s likely frustrated with his current situation.
NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reached out to a source close to Abraham, who said there was “nothing to it.”
The source added that “perhaps (he’s) expressing the frustration” with a free-agent process that has yielded no new work. Coming off a 10-sack season — and with 122 sacks in 13 productive season — the relative cold shoulder can’t be pleasant.
Abraham’s asking price is likely a little too high for a player that’s at the end of his career. I’m sure if he lowered his price, he would find a job.
