Abraham’s Agent Says He’s Not Upset About His Contract

There’s been some talk about DE John Abraham not being happy about his deal and not being there when camp starts on August 1st. His agent, Rich Rosa, disputes that notion which came out on NFL Network.

The Falcons have stated that they have not been approached by Abraham’s agent about re-doing his six-year, $45 million contact.

Abraham was traded to the Falcons in 2006. He’s set to make $5 million in 2009, $6.5 million in 2010 and $8 million in 2011. He is the best player on the Falcons defense, and last season was a second-team All Pro and had 16.5 sacks.

“Absolutely, the bottom line is that Arthur Blank brought John Abraham in to do what he’s been doing,” Rosa said. “He’s been leading that defense. To go out and have 16.5 sacks and not make the Pro Bowl was absurd. But here, the guy has been a staple. He’s ready to go. He’s so happy to be on that team.”
