Former Jets, Falcons and Cardinals DE John Abraham has been charged with misdemeanor battery.

The charge stems from a February incident outside a strip club in Brookhaven, Georgia. The alleged victim was reportedly assaulted by Abraham as he approached to resolve an old dispute. Abraham, who missed most of last season with a concussion, has received no known interest on the open market. He turned 37 years old last month.

XTRA 910 Arizona's Mike Jurecki "hears" impending free agent John Abraham is "50-50" about continuing his playing career.

Abraham, 37 in May, has been working out, but has yet to make a decision. That will likely hinge on whether Abraham draws any interest on the open market after his 2014 season was ended in Week 1 thanks to his latest concussion. Abraham recorded 11.5 sacks in 2013 to lead the Cardinals.

Cardinals OLB John Abraham (injured reserve, concussion) wants to play in 2015.

"Honestly I think I got one more year in me," Abraham tweeted Monday. He'll be 37 in May, but still showed enough pass-rush juice with 11.5 sacks in 2013. His 2014 season was ended in Week 1 after a concussion, just his latest in a long line of them. Abraham admitted to experiencing memory loss. He's not going to get much money on the open market. If he's willing to play for about a million bucks with some incentives, then Abraham may have some takers.

Cardinals placed OLB John Abraham on injured reserve with a concussion, ending his season.

Abraham's Week 1 concussion proved to be too much to overcome for the 36-year-old. After suffering the injury, Abraham went home to contemplate his future. He returned to the team this week, but couldn't pass the concussion protocol. The NFL's active sack leader with 133.5 of them, Abraham's career may be over. The Cardinals are in dire need of edge-rush help. They'll roll with some combo of Matt Shaughnessy, Sam Acho, Thomas Keiser, and Victor Butler.

Updating a previous item, Cardinals OLB John Abraham didn't pass through the concussion protocol Tuesday and will try again on Wednesday.

Abraham suffered the concussion in Week 1 and left the team to mull his future. He returned to the club Monday, but is yet to be symptom-free. The Cardinals took a flier on OLB Victor Butler Tuesday. Abraham remains day-to-day.
Tue, Sep 16, 2014 08:47:00 PM

Cardinals OLB John Abraham has been cleared from his Week 1 concussion and will rejoin the team on Tuesday.

It's great news for Bruce Arians' club, which noticeably lacked pass-rush ability in Sunday's win over the Giants. Abraham is the Cardinals' only true outside rusher. It sounds like he will start in Week 3 against San Francisco.
Mon, Sep 15, 2014 03:24:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Cardinals OLB John Abraham (concussion) has left the team, and is contemplating retirement.

Abraham, 36, has suffered multiple concussions in the NFL, and has been experiencing memory loss for over a year. On Monday against the Chargers, Abraham came around the edge and banged his head/neck on RT D.J. Fluker while falling to the ground. He immediately exited the field. Abraham is Arizona's only real pure pass-rushing threat off the edge. His loss would be huge. Matt Shaughnessy and Sam Acho are the outside linebackers in the desert. Thomas Keiser is the No. 3. OLB Marcus Benard has been re-signed.

Cardinals OLB John Abraham is going through the league's concussion protocol.

With the Cardinals on a short week, Abraham will be hard pressed to get cleared for Sunday's game against the Giants. Playing in his age-36 season, Abraham was having a strong game before going down on Monday.
Tue, Sep 9, 2014 03:53:00 PM

John Abraham exited Monday night's Week 1 games against the Chargers with a head injury.

Abraham is being evaluated for a concussion. The 36-year-old banged his head/neck on Chargers RT D.J. Fluker while rushing the passer. Abraham is Arizona's only real established pass rusher off the edge. He'd be a big loss.
Tue, Sep 9, 2014 12:17:00 AM

Cardinals OLB John Abraham reported to training camp on Thursday.

Abraham wasn't at camp to this point because he was in rehab, per XTRA 910 Arizona's Mike Jurecki. He was arrested on June 29 for DUI. Abraham remained a highly effective pass rusher in 2013 -- he tallied 11.5 sacks and four forced fumbles -- but turned 36 in May. The Cardinals would be quite lucky to get 80 percent of Abraham's production this year. They also lost ILB Daryl Washington to a year-long suspension, and ILB Karlos Dansby in free agency.
Thu, Aug 14, 2014 10:48:00 AM

XTRA 910 Arizona's Mike Jurecki is "hearing" Cardinals OLB John Abraham is in rehab, and may not report to camp until next week.

Abraham himself alluded to a stint in rehab, saying he's been taking care of "personal business" since his June 29 DUI arrest. Abraham has nothing to prove in the preseason, so getting his personal life in order is of much greater concern heading toward the regular season. He should be in the fold come Week 1.
Tue, Aug 12, 2014 08:15:00 PM

Cardinals OLB John Abraham has yet to report to camp.

Abraham has been taking care of "personal business" since his late-June arrest for DUI. Coach Bruce Arians "hopes" Abraham will report this week. Although he's heading into his age-36 season, Abraham would still have plenty of time to get in shape for Week 1 if he can make it to camp within the week.
Mon, Aug 11, 2014 04:03:00 PM

Cardinals OLB John Abraham was arrested and charged with DUI in Atlanta on June 29.

This may explain why Abraham, 36, has yet to show up to Cardinals camp. He was previously busted for DWI in 2003 while with the Jets, so Abraham may be staring down a suspension once the legal process plays out. Considering how long it takes for these matters to be resolved, it may not even affect Abraham during the 2014 season. Abraham led Arizona with 11.5 sacks last year.
Mon, Jul 28, 2014 08:45:00 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians confirmed John Abraham (groin) will play in Week 17 against San Francisco.

The Cardinals must win Sunday's game to keep their playoff hopes alive. Arians told reporters Friday that Abraham "is fine" and "on track" to play his normal role. After a slow start, Abraham has come on very strong in Arizona, registering 11.5 sacks -- his most since the 2010 season in Atlanta.
