To Denver Broncos For First Round Pick
March 02, 2006
AJ Vaynerchuk
It seems that the New York Jets have traded John Abraham to the Denver Broncos in exchange for the 29th overall selection in the draft. How this scenario works out for both teams will be examined, along with the trade itself.

For the Jets: The Jets rid themselves of a headache that they have been dealing with for the past two seasons. John Abraham has either been hurt, asking for a new contract, or driving into fire hydrants the past few years. With the Jets shipping John out of New York, the team already has a boost in team chemistry. Gaining a first round pick out of the deal is just a bonus.

For the Broncos: This is a team that accumulated ten sacks from it's starting front four last year. Abraham, by himself, had 10.5 sacks on an underachieving Jets team. Immediately the Broncos add an impact player to their defensive line. This Broncos defense just took another step up in terms of playmaking ability with the acquisition of Abraham. This was a luxury trade for the Broncos considering the fact that they have another first round pick, No. 22.

Signs that showed this trade's hand: Yesterday the Broncos got way under the salary cap by cutting Trevor Pryce and Jeb Putzier. Trevor Pryce plays Abraham's position, and makes about the same amount of money. Interesting. Another interesting fact is the idea that Putzier was nearly a Jet last season. The Jets offered Jeb a contract, but the Broncos had rights to Putzier and opted to match the Jets offer. Maybe we will see Jeb Putzier in green and white afterall.

The official announcement of the trade should be made tomorrow. Until then, this monstrous trade will be discussed at nearly every football message board.

I agree! How are we going to pay for these players though, how many more contracts can be restructured? Is it possible to sign TO and Abraham?

Chill out DK, ease up on the negativity, some people are not on this site 24/7, obviously this is the first time we have heard of anything more than just speculation on this topic, it is not a reliable source, but it still gives way for optimism

There's a difference between optimism and realism.

I tend to favor the realistic side.

There's a reason that this rumor hasn't been picked up by the likes of any real media outlet:

It has not been substantiated in any way.

Frankly, I see no reason to give any legitimacy to that source and neither does any of the other media, so it makes no sense to tout it as fact.

Well there is an article on denverpost which sort of corroborates the rumour,

"Pryce was released essentially because Denver no longer thought he was worth his $10.3 million salary. According to a source familiar with the negotiations, to replace Pryce, the Broncos are trying to acquire New York Jets defensive end John Abraham, who is locked in for an $8.3 million salary."

1st round pick for Abraham seems to be a good deal but i think we should low ball the Jets a bit more. They are trying to get rid of him, i think 2nd round maybe a 3rd round would be a better deal.
