If I was your lineman...
By AJ Mass
Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff sounds an awful lot like Justin Bieber when talking about the chances of a John Abraham return to Atlanta. "We never say never," he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
That's not exactly a ringing endorsement of the team's desire to bring their free agent defensive lineman back into the fold, and with Osi Umenyiora and Kroy Biermann more than capable of taking care of business, the asking price for a potential Abraham return needs to drop quite a bit before a deal gets done. However, with the door being left open, there's always a chance.
If so, perhaps if the Flacons don't like what they get out of the draft, they'll come running to Abraham with open arms. Then there can be one less lonely lineman in the world.
