Abraham Signs with Falcons
ATLANTA -- Sometimes it takes a third party to resolve a stalemate, and that was the case on Tuesday evening as the Atlanta Falcons consummated a much-rumored trade for New York Jets defensive end and designated franchise player John Abraham.
To complete the trade, the Falcons enlisted the aid of the Denver Broncos, who, ironically, had once been interested in Abraham themselves.
Atlanta sent its first-round choice, the 15th pick overall in this year's draft, to Denver for the Broncos' first-round choice, No. 29 overall. The Falcons also picked up a pair of middle-round selections, one each in the 2006 and 2007 drafts.
The Falcons then shipped the 29th pick acquired from Denver to the Jets in exchange for Abraham, a three-time Pro Bowl pass rusher who was also being sought by the Seattle Seahawks.

Re: Abraham Signs with Falcons
thats pretty cheap for denver to move up 14 positions. shows the steelers have plenty of flexibility to move up the same. great job of atlanta turning a traded pick into 2 mid rounders, instead of just giving away the #15 pick. good move by denver (remember they pissed away a 3rd round compensetory pick on m. clarett and didnt think nothing of it).
