John Abraham a fit for New York Giants? Probably not

John Abraham - US PRESSWIRE

John Abraham remains a free agent. Could he be a fit for the New York Giants?

On Sirius XM NFL Radio on Tuesday Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan, who know more football than I ever will and are better connected around the league than I ever will be, were discussing potential landing spots for still-free-agent veteran defensive end John Abraham. They opined that the New York Giants are a perfect landing spot for the 35-year-old pass rusher.

Sorry, but I can't see it happening. If the Giants wanted to overpay for a one-dimensional pass-rush specialist they would have simply caved in to the big-money demands of Osi Umenyiora and kept him. Failing that they would have signed former Indianapolis Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney, whom they ignored on the free agent market despite Freeney and his father practically begging the Giants for an offer.

There is lots of speculation floating around the Inter-Google these days as to why Abraham, a four-time Pro Bowler with 122 quarterback sacks in 13 seasons, remains a free agent. Is it asking price? Is it attitude? Is it something else?

I don't know what it is, to be honest. I just know that with the Giants having only slightly more than $3 million in cap space and still needing to sign Victor Cruz as well as rookies Justin Pugh and Ryan Nassib it isn't likely to happen. The only thing that might change that would be some type of long-term injury to Jason Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck or Mathias Kiwanuka.
