ATLANTA — Veteran defensive end and free agent John Abraham is expected to visit the Seahawks this week, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Thursday.

Abraham, who will be 35 by the time the 2013 season starts, has been one of the NFL’s top edge pass rushers. He had 10 sacks last season with the Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons cut Abraham last Friday, after seven seasons with the team, to reduce the Falcons salary cap. He has remained productive in recent seasons despite his advancing age.

Teams cannot sign unrestricted free agents until Tuesday.

    I guess some insurance while Chris Clemons is rehabbing his knee would be nice, but hopefully the Hawks don't overpay for him. Patrick Kerney came from the Falcons to the Hawks a few years ago on the downslide of his career too. Don't get me wrong, I loved Kerney and him being the sack leader that year was no fluke. I just wish they woulda got a couple more years out of him.
