John Abraham Retiring?

After John Abraham was released by the Atlanta Falcons this March, he said that he was not considering retirement. After visiting several teams but not striking a deal with any, it looks like he may have changed his mind. Things can often be mis-read on Twitter but John Abraham's last two tweets make it seem like it could be the end of the road for a great NFL player.

If Abraham is in fact retiring, he's had a hell of a 13 year career. He has sacked the QB 122 times (in the regular season), 68.5 times as a Falcon. It's hard to believe nobody could find room for a guy who had 10 sacks last season.

As a Falcon, Abraham really became a fan favorite as you can see from the out pooring of support on Twitter for Abe…

If it is the end of the road for John Abraham, he's had a full career and he will be missed.

UPDATE: NFL.com says that despite the "cryptic" tweets, Abraham is not retiring. Interestingly enough, the tweets that were posted above in this article are no longer on John Abraham's account as they have been deleted. 

His sister has also tweeted that he is not retiring.

Sounds like he might be having a change of heart.
