Former Falcons defensive end John Abraham has agreed to a reported 2-year, $6 million deal to join the Arizona Cardinals.
The Falcons' all-time sack leader visited the Cardinals on Wednesday and agreed to terms Thursday, CBSSports.com reported.
The Falcons released Abraham in March, one year into a three-year contract signed last season. The Dolphins, Titans and Patriots all reportedly met with Abraham with an interest to sign him this offseason.
Abraham, who had 19.5 sacks over the last two seasons in Atlanta, was replaced on the Falcons' roster by free agent Osi Umenyiora.
There is a strong possibility the Falcons have won their last game of the season. That projection isn’t based on injuries, schemes or a weekly metamorphosis along the offensive line, but rather sheer numbers.
Falcons linebacker Stephen Nicholas came off the bench to help stymie the Redskins on Sunday.With linebacker Sean Weatherspoon knocked from the game with a knee injury, Nicholas, the former starter who has been relegated to special teams duties, took over in the third quarter.
