    GIANTS REPORTEDLY INTERESTED IN FALCONS' DE JOHN ABRAHAM

    GIANTS REPORTEDLY INTERESTED IN FALCONS' DE JOHN ABRAHAM

    "There's a saying: "You can never have too many pass rushers". Those were the
    words uttered by former New York
    Giants
    general manager Ernie Accorsi and are now being carried out by
    current general manager Jerry Reese.

    to avoid the pressure of Atlanta Falcons defensive end John
    Abraham
    (#55) in the second half of an NFL football game at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia on
    October 16, 2011. The Falcons defeated the Panthers 31-17. UPI Photo/Erik S.
    Lesser















    For a team who just won Super Bowl XLVI on the back of it's pass rush that
    featured Justin
    Tuck
    , OsiUmenyiora, Jason Pierre- Paul, and Mathias Kiwanuka, the Giants
    are reportedly interested in adding defensive end John
    Abraham
    in free agency.




    The combine is said to be the unofficial start of free agency and time will
    only tell whether these rumors are true, but Abraham is reportedly set to hit
    the market as the Falcons have little interest in bringing back the pass rushing
    specialist.




    Abraham would be a rotational player for the Giants in nickel situations and
    with the future of Osi
    Umenyiora
    up in the air, it is always good to have insurance."

    Can Abraham play TE? Can be be a good OL? Come on seriously, Reese has to get his priorities straight.

    Yeah, apparently he wants in excess of $12 mil. No way he swaps red for blue.

    Reese's priority is the team. We don't even know if this is good information but if it is, he would be used in rotation with Tuck, JPP, and Kiwanuka. He won't be asked to play every down.

    For the money, I'd rather invest somewhere else

    Of course his priority is the team. I understand he loves pass rushers and rightfully so, but there are so many other holes on this team right now the last think on his mind should be another pass rusher, especially with Osi saying he would take less money to stay. I hope this report isn't true.

    I am not a big fan of Abraham. He has the reputation ofa guy wit alot of talent but doesn't always show up. I don't see how the Giants could afford him with the current Cap situation.

    I think you might want to just take a breath and let Reese do what he has proven he does very well. One of the reason we got into and through the playoffs was our pass rush. It could be Reese knows Osi won't be here next season and he's looking at a Kawika Mitchell type of resolve.

    The fact that he may be looking for a DE/pass rusher doesn't mean he also isn't looking at the OLine.
