Abraham close to being gone

Disgruntled Jets defensive end John Abraham is close to being traded to either the Atlanta Falcons or Seattle Seahawks.

The Jets allowed Abraham, their franchise player, to shop himself around to other teams, and the Falcons and Seahawks have emerged as the front-runners to land his services.

He has agreed to a contract with the Falcons, but the Jets and Atlanta haven't been able to come to terms on a trade. The Jets want the Falcons first round pick (#15), and Atlanta doesn't seem to want to give it up.

The Seahawks, on the other hand, haven't agreed on a contract with Abraham, but are willing to give the Jets their first round pick (31st overall).

Abraham should be a member of one of these two teams in the next day or two.
