Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News


Abraham is a 14 year veteran with 133.5 career sacks. Some people thought he was done after his 2012 season in Atlanta but Abraham responded with 11.5 sacks in his first year in Arizona. Despite the fact that he's 36 years old, Abraham has shown no signs of slowing, with 44 sacks in his last 4 seasons. The improvement on an already solid secondary should give Abraham even more time to get to the passer. (May 24)

Cardinals | John Abraham facing DUI charge (Tue Jul 29, 04:26 PM) - Arizona Cardinals DE John Abraham has been charged with driving under the influence following a June 29 arrest.

Our View: Bad news for the veteran here--and for the Cardinals. He led the team in sacks last year (11.5), but this isn't his first problem with DUI's. Back in 2003, Abraham was cited for DWI when he was with the Jets. Abraham has not reported to the team's training camp, and he could be facing a suspension from the league when the legal process has been exhausted.

Abraham missed his third straight day of training camp Monday, July 28.

Our View: Abraham may be facing discipline from the league when the legal process is exhausted. He was arrested for DWI in 2003, so the NFL might choose to suspend him for multiple offenses. Abraham led the Cardinals is sacks last year with 11.5.

Cardinals | John Abraham not at camp (Fri Jul 25, 04:57 PM) - Arizona Cardinals LB John Abraham (personal) has not reported to training camp due to a personal matter. Abraham will report when it is resolved, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Our View: It doesn't sound serious, and Abraham will likely be in camp soon. The defense will need his pass-rushing skills (he totaled 11.5 sacks for them last year) if they are to keep pace in the ultra-competitive NFC West.
