Report: Titans, Abraham talks have stalled

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the Titans’ interest in free agent defensive end John Abraham, who visited with the team in early May.

At the time, the amount of playing time Abraham would get with the Titans was reportedly the sticking point in talks between the two sides. A league source told PFT that Abraham was looking for 60+ snaps a game (and, most likely, the salary that comes with such a prominent role) while the Titans and other interested teams want him to play a situational role.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network checked in with an update on things Tuesday, but there doesn’t appear to have been much movement in the last month. Per Rapoport, talks between Abraham and the Titans are in a “stall” and that things are not moving quickly toward a resolution.

Rapoport adds that things aren’t dead, however. Barring an injury that opens up a more prominent role, there will likely come a point where Abraham has to decide whether or not to play a more limited role if that’s the only way to continue his playing career. Should the Titans remain interested when that day comes, things can become unstalled quickly.

    Bad fit, Abraham needs to go to a contender..not a rebuilding team like the Titans

    Abraham wants to be a starter, but no one is looking for a player that doesn’t want to be in a situational role right now, regardless of past success and especially not for a big contract. His best bet now is to wait a team needs him due to injury at that position like what happened Freeney or accept the pass-rushing role given to him by the Titans.

    This guy is LAZY and overrated! Perfect fit for the Jets or Redskins.

    I changed (the 1st instance of) idiot to moron to ease the redundancy factor… but didn’t pay attention to the lead-in. What a fricken zipperhead am I! hehe.
