ATLANTA -- Sometimes it takes a third party to resolve a stalemate, and that was the case on Tuesday evening as the Atlanta Falcons consummated a much-rumored trade for New York Jets defensive end and designated franchise player John Abraham.

To complete the trade, the Falcons enlisted the aid of the Denver Broncos, who, ironically, had once been interested in Abraham themselves.

Atlanta sent its first-round choice, the 15th pick overall in this year's draft, to Denver for the Broncos' first-round choice, No. 29 overall. The Falcons also picked up a pair of middle-round selections, one each in the 2006 and 2007 drafts.

The Falcons then shipped the 29th pick acquired from Denver to the Jets in exchange for Abraham, a three-time Pro Bowl pass rusher who was also being sought by the Seattle Seahawks.




Wow, can the draft get any more exciting. now the jets have 2 first rounders to move up. maybe they move up to 2nd to get leinart.
