Abraham wants out

<Feb. 8> According to The Newark Star-Ledger, Abraham has told those close to him that he wants out because the Jets continue to drag their feet regarding a long-term deal. However, new general manager Mike Tannenbaum did extend an olive branch to the three-time Pro Bowl DE on Tuesday. "I've known John since 2000. I think he's matured as a person and improved as a player," Tannenbaum said yesterday. "I think he deserves a lot of credit for playing the entire 2005 season, all 16 games."

Th Jets are expected to place the franchise tag on Abraham this month (they have from tomorrow until Feb. 23) and then try to trade him. The franchise tender for a defensive end will be $8.3 million in 2006. The amount is determined by the average salary of the five highest-paid players at the position.

There are several teams reportedly interested in the unrestricted free agent, including the Chargers, Redskins, Browns and Texans. One possibility, according to The Star-Ledger, could be a deal with San Diego for quarterback Philip Rivers. New Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer was Rivers' quarterback coach the last two seasons.

This is what they say about Koren...


Robinson eyeing homecoming

<Feb. 8> After rehabilitating his career with the Vikings last season, Robinson is now scheduled to become a free agent in March and would be interested in returning close to home and joining the Carolina Panthers, who are likely to attempt to bolster their receiving corps, the Charolotte Observer reports.

After a difficult tenure in Seattle, where the receiver was dogged by off-the-field problems, Robinson earned a trip to the Pro Bowl as a return man in his first season in Minnesota. With John Fox and the Panthers coaching staff in charge of the NFC squad, Carolina has a unique chance to get an in-depth look at Robinson this week.

"I'm going to use this week to impress them and show them the type of person I am now," Robinson said.
