Looks like former Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham can hold a grudge. The free agent is still without a team after he was released by Atlanta, who didn't want to pay him the $5.75 million in base salary he was due this season. It's now being reported that the team has been in contact with Abraham and has attempted to re-sign him, and John flat out told them in so many words, 'hell no,' a person with inside knowledge of the talks told USA TODAY Sports. Fans have been apparently hounding Abraham on Twitter about his return to Atlanta, as he tweeted this out Monday. Y yall keep tweeting me like I did it I got cut stop asking to come back plz — John Abraham(Mr.100) (@johnabraham55) May 6, 2013 Abraham, who also turned 35 on Monday, had only a few days ago hinted at retiring via a few Twitter messages that have since been deleted. The latest news as far as signing with aother team comes out of Tennessee, who he visited with last week. Talks are said to be ongoing between the two parties.
