Does Abraham still make sense in Denver?

Shortly after the Elvis Dumervil fax fiasco, the Denver Broncos reached out to veteran pass-rushers Dwight Freeney and John Abraham.

It seemed like Denver would replace Dumervil, the Broncos’ second pass-rushing option behind star Von Miller, with one of the two veterans.

However, because of financial reasons, Denver pulled away from both players. Instead it added former San Diego pass-rusher Shaun Phillips and drafted rookie Quanterus Smith in the fifth round to help Miller.

However, the USA Today thinks a Denver-Abraham pairing could still be achieved. It looks at its top 10 remaining free agents. Abraham is No. 1 on the list. It think his best fit is Denver.

Could it still happen? I think if the price is right, sure. Denver is in win-now mode and if it thinks the veteran Abraham is a missing piece, it will pursue him.

I wouldn’t count on Abraham signing in Denver, but I can certainly see it as well.
