Falcons "Never Say Never" To John Abraham Return

The veteran is still beloved in Atlanta.

This is old news in a way, but since D. Orlando Ledbetter just had a fresh conversation with Thomas Dimitroff, we have reason to break it out again.

The Falcons have not ruled out bringing John Abraham back, and an unusually candid Comrade keeps refusing to do so. Here's the latest quote:

"We never say never… there is a lot on the horizon. We have some decisions to make across the organization, but we never say never as far as acquiring or bringing people back."

Personally, I feel like this is becoming likelier by the day. No one is snapping up Abe, the Falcons still need pass rush help and they now have more than enough money to get the job done. Abraham might actually be the third or fourth defensive end in the rotation now, with Osi Umenyiora on board and Kroy Biermann and Jonathan Massaquoi sure to take on plenty of snaps. But he's still a useful player, and age hasn't dimmed his drive. I'd welcome him back if the Falcons can fit him under the cap.

Do you think Abraham will return to Atlanta?
