NFL Rumor Central

John Abraham





Falcons eyeing Abraham?

<Mar. 4> With Abraham's days clearly numbered in New York, the Falcons could be a potential suitor, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. As expected, the Falcons released veteran defensive end Brady Smith on Friday.

However, Atlanta's prospects of acquiring Abraham rest heavily on a new labor deal, which would provide them the salary-cap space to award the type of big-dollar contract Abraham seeks.

The disgruntled defensive end has expressed his desire to leave New York, after being designated the team's franchise player for the second consecutive year, and his agent, Tony Ragone, has already begun exploring trade options.

"We're exploring other possibilities along with the Jets," Agnone said. "We feel at this point probably that John will not be back in New York."

Agnone said the fact-finding hasn't gotten to the stage where they are talking long-term contract with another suitor, but Abraham's other agent, Rich Rosa claims four or five teams have shown serious interest.

Denver has been mentioned as a possibility. The Broncos are looking to replace released DE Trevor Pryce, but it's doubtful the team will be able to accommodate Abraham's $8.33 million salary without making another round of cost-cutting moves.

Other possibilities include the Redskins and Lions, where Abraham could be reunited with coordinator Donnie Henderson.


Patrick Ramsey





Ramsey on Miami's radar

<Mar. 6> Although Drew Brees is their first choice, the Dolphins are closely monitoring the status of Ramsey, the Miami Herald reports. If Ramsey is cut by the Redskins, it's believed he would have interest in playing for the Dolphins. If Washington decides to keep him, the Dolpins would consider parting with a low-round pick to acquire Ramsey, according to the Herald.

The Jets and Raiders are also considered possible suitors for Ramsey.

Redskins coach Joe Gibbs has acknowledged that the team is trying to trade Ramsey, a former first-round quarterback, and has granted permission to the onetime starter and his agent to seek potential trade suitors as well.


Dan Campbell



Campbell on his way out

<Mar. 4> The Cowboys have not made an offer to Campbell, their offensive captain last season, and it appears likely that he has played his last game in Dallas, the Dallas Morning News reports.

"It looks like a done deal he won't be back," Campbell's agent, Leonard Roth said.

New Orleans could be Campbell's most ardent suitor because of his previous relationship with Saints coach Sean Payton with the Cowboys and New York Giants
