UPDATE: According to Erika Leigh, the New England Patriots are finalizing a deal with John Abraham.

According to a tweet by Albert Beer of the NFL Network, former Atlanta Falcons’ defensive lineman John Abraham will be visiting the New England Patriots on Friday.

Abraham was the 2nd ranked defensive end on our free agent rankings list, and would add some nice veteran depth to the Patriots’ pass rush.

In 16 games with the Falcons in 2012, the former Pro Bowler had 35 tackles, 6 forced fumbles and 10.0 sacks.

Free agent pass rusher John Abraham will visit with the San Francisco 49ers according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today.

Garafolo’s source states Abraham is scheduled to fly to San Francisco later today to meet with the defending NFC Champions. Abraham’s trip will come after he meets with Seattle earlier in the day. Garafolo says it’s unclear whether the Seahawks will make a push to sign the former Falcons DE before he leaves.

Abraham has played in a 4-3 defence for most of his career. The 49ers employ a 3-4 look, meaning Abraham will likely be used as a stand up rusher.
