Weird, the page that loaded for me only had the Ramsey thing for March 17th. Nothing about Abraham (I even did a Ctrl-F search for 'Abraham').

It's certainly there now, right at the top in all caps.

Weird.

Schefter updated the bolded part.


Meanwhile, IN A BLOCKBUSTER TRADE THAT IS PURELY SPECULATION BY THE JETS, YET CONFIRMED BY TWO TEAMS INTERESTED IN JOHN ABRAHAM, the Pro Bowl defensive end, whom the Jets finally were able to deal, was sent to Seattle for the Seahawks' first-round draft pick, the 31st overall selection. The deal is contingent upon the Seahawks being able to sign Abraham to a long-term contract extension, something that has been challenging the past couple of seasons.

And right now, Abraham has the framework for a deal in place with the Atlanta Falcons, who do not have a deal in place with the New York Jets. So each team has half the deal completed, but one has to get the full deal completed. Abraham has been seeking well over $15 million in guaranteed money, and one NFL executive said the defensive end was demanding $27 million over the first three years of the contract. Now, if Seattle can sign Abraham, they will give him the contract he wants and the Jets their first-round pick.

And the remaking of the Jets roster was in full swing.

It's not there for me, despite a forced refresh.

I would pass on him for that jack. It seems like he was always on the injury report and missed time in a lot of games.
