    Abraham headed to Atlanta via three-way trade

    Three-way trade sends Abraham to Falcons
    Jay Glazer / FOXSports.com
    Posted: 7 minutes ago

    Disgruntled defensive end John Abraham may finally have been traded to the team he was hoping, albeit not in the trade route that was expected.

    FOXSports.com has learned that the Falcons, Broncos and Jets swung a three-way trade Tuesday in order to make the deal happen that would get Abraham to the Falcons. The deal has been approved by the league, but the parties are all waiting for the Jets to sign the trade papers and make it official.

    In the trade, the Falcons send their first-round pick (No. 15 overall) to the Broncos, and Denver turns around and sends its first-round pick (No. 29) and a third-rounder in this year's draft plus a fourth-round pick in 2007 to Atlanta. The Falcons then send that 29th overall pick in the draft to the Jets for Abraham. The Jets thus receive a draft pick two slots higher in the first round than the Seahawks were able to offer in their quest to land Abraham.

    Abraham also told FOXSports.com several days ago that he had agreed to the financial parameters of a deal with the Falcons and insisted that was the primary team he wanted to play for.

    Abraham also talked glowingly about the opportunity to play on a defense with the likes of fellow Pro Bowl defensive end Patrick Kerney as well as Pro Bowler players Keith Booking, DeAngelo Hall and Rod Coleman.

    Abraham balked at the idea of moving to the Northwest to play in Seattle because he wants to be close to his family on the East Coast and is actually taking a bit less money to go to Atlanta than he would have gotten from the Seahawks.

    Denver now has a pretty solid shot at RB DeAngelo Williams in the first. They could also grab a receiver (Holmes or Jackson), Brodrick Bunkley, or should have their pick of second-ranked defensive ends or a potential safety prospect like Jimmy Williams.

    well good to hear that hes not headed to the seachickens.

    I'm a little surprised that all they got for him was a late first round pick, after all the Shuab (sp) rumors, I would have expected a little more for a franchise end.

    Falcons are going to be tough. They're going to have a very good DEFENSE.

    Well, let's see... Seattle now has 7 million dollars more to work with now that they didn't keep Hutch.

    And they still have their low 1st round pick.

    ....I still see them making an offer to Kevin Curtis eventually.
