The Atlanta Falcons sack leader from... well, pretty much every year of recent memory, is still a free agent after he was unceremoniously let go along with a lot of other highly paid veterans months and months ago. The now free agent has spent those months unemployed. He quickly jetted off to Seattle and San Francisco, was linked to New Orleans and has been in talks with the Titans.
Abraham went to his infrequently used twitter account where he talked to a few random followers around 5 or so in the morning. Some highlights after the jump.
Lets start off with recent talks with the Titans. Those talks are apparently slow.
One thing from yesterday I hadn't mentioned yet: Talks between John Abraham & #Titans are in a "stall." Not dead. No one moving quickly

The market for free agents has been unusually slow, and Dwight Freeny gained employment only after Melvin Ingram tore his ACL. Camp is quickly approaching and Abraham is apparently giving teams "sticker shock" while asking to play at least 60% of the defensive snaps.
Many fans, myself included, would love to see Abraham come back to Atlanta and finish off his career in red and black, likely as a purely situational pass rusher. It doesn't sound likely anymore.
Asked about his free agency, Abraham had this to say:
@bindasandy 31 teams except one guess who I'm not chasing

It is no secret Abraham was unhappy being let go, but if you held on to any hope of 55 returning to Atlanta after he had some time to move past receiving his walking papers and reaching a slow market, now is the time to let that hope go. Abraham confirms as much in other tweets that he is still holding a grudge... and certainly sounds like he will not consider bids from Thomas Dimitroff.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. As good as the Falcons offense was last season ranking 8th in yards per game and 7th in scoring the expectations are that it will be even better in 2013.
The reason is simple. Even as the Falcons advanced to the NFC title game last season, the offense was going through something of a transition year, as Dirk Koetter entered his first season as offensive coordinator...
The Atlanta Falcons were on top of the NFC last season with their 13-3 record, but struggled in the NFC South with a 3-3 record. Good thing for the Falcons front office and fans that the rest of the division was having an off year or they could have found themselves on the outside of the playoff picture.Instead the division was weak and the Falcons finally lucked out and won a playoff...
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Mike Johnson admitted to shock when he learned that the Falcons had released Tyson Clabo earlier in the spring.
Looking over the offensive lines meeting room, the faces changed and it got younger in a flash. The Falcons decision to cut Clabo and to force center Todd McClure into retirement wiped away 296 NFL starts in a matter of weeks, which, in NFL offseason...
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman were made for each other.

The Atlanta Falcons have a bunch of undrafted rookies that they have signed to their roster. The odds are slim that these players will make the team but who knows....one of them could be the next Jessie Tuggle (undrafted in 1987). With that in mind, this series will focus on the undrafted rookie players that the Falcons have in camp. We will go through them and give facts and information...
Will Atlanta's shortcomings come back to haunt Mike Smith? (Credit)
The Atlanta Falcons currently sit right on the cusp of finally winning their first Super Bowl and have been for some time. In essence, they have been a contender ever since Matt Ryan threw his first regular season pass in the NFL to Michael Jenkins for a 62-yard touchdown.
Since then, they have made the playoffs...
