Confirmed: DE John Abraham visiting Seattle

According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, free agent defensive end John Abraham is on is way to visit the Seattle Seahawks.

UPDATE: I can confirm that Abraham is headed to Seattle.

If true, this move makes sense. The Seahawks likely will begin the start of the season without defensive end Chris Clemons as he rehabs from ACL reconstructive knee surgery. Abraham and Clemons have a similar skill set.

Abraham, 34, had 68.5 sacks over his seven seasons with the Falcons. He had a career-high of 16.5 sacks in 2008.

Abraham was recently released by Atlanta in salary cap move.
