The 35-year-old four-time Pro Bowler is preparing to face his former team, the Atlanta Falcons, this Sunday in Glendale. Following a two sack, two forced fumble performance against the Seahawks, Abraham is starting to generate the power and speed that has made him such a defensive force during his 14-year NFL career.
The 3-4 Cardinals can certainly use a dynamic Abraham now. They face a tough Falcons contingent on Sunday and need a victory to stay relevant in the NFC wildcard race. They trail the division-leading Seahawks by three games already and can't afford to fall farther behind.
"When I think about my age, ‘I’m 35,’ you have a lot of young cats around you, but I’m not just doing it at a level, I’m doing it at a high level,” Abraham said via azcardinals.com. “I’m just glad I got some sacks to show I still can."
Abraham has 124 career sacks and 46 forced fumbles to his credit during his illustrious career. He participated in 65 of 67 defensive snaps last Thursday in Arizona's 34-22 setback to Seattle. Number 55 is showing folks that he still has a lot of gas left in his tank.
“I’m surprised I can still do this,” Abraham said. “For real.”
The timing could not be any better for the Cardinals.
