John Abraham is about to enter what his agent describes as a "do or die" round of negotiations with the Atlanta Falcons.
2012's notable free agents
Abraham said Wednesday on WQXI-AM in Atlanta, via the Journal-Constitution that his salary paled in comparison to other top defensive ends. On Friday night, Abraham clarified his comments by tweeting, "I did not ask for 12 million a year, I simply stated that good ends make 12-16 a year & I asked if I was worth 10?" That tweet was not on Abraham's feed as of Saturday morning.
Abraham, 33, has 58.5 sacks in six seasons with the Falcons and is coming off a 2011 season during which he totaled 9.5 sacks in 15 starts.
Rosa told the Journal-Constitution that Abraham would like to play three more seasons.
