Falcons Training Camp: John Abraham Getting Up To Speed

Atlanta Falcons defensive end John Abraham was excused from some of the team's OTA workouts this offseason and now he is leaning on some of his teammates to help get him up to speed with Mike Nolan's new defensive schemes.

"Everyone is learning the defense so everybody is asking questions," Abraham said. "I'm asking some of the guys that were here more during the offseason than I was. Everything is going pretty good right now. Everybody's learning together, which is a good thing right since no one is teaching anyone anything, we're all learning together. We're taking small steps at a time."

Abraham spent his rookie season with the Jets working under Nolan but that hasn't really helped him much this time around. Abraham is on board with the changes the team has made with the defense and should thrive in Nolan's attacking scheme.
