    Jets will make Abraham franchise player

    The best free-agent pass rusher has just been taken off the market.

    Jets Pro Bowl defensive end John Abraham has told FOXSports.com that he was informed early Wednesday by the team that it will designate him as its franchise player.

    The move means the Jets will have to pay Abraham the average of the top five players at his position, a number that should be north of $7 million for a one-year salary.

    The move in essence takes Abraham off the free-agent market. Abraham made the Pro Bowl this year, but will not participate due to a torn lateral collateral ligament.

    Abraham had 49 tackles, including 9 sacks, in 2004.
