    On an otherwise sleepy Saturday in the NFL, two cryptic messages from John Abraham's Twitter account piqued our attention, writing "Retiring 13" and "Done," before later deleting the tweets.

    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reached out to a source close to the defensive end to find out if this was a notice of his retirement and the source said there was "nothing to it", adding that "perhaps (Abraham is) expressing the frustration" he has with a free-agent process that hasn't yielded a new job. With Abraham coming off a 10-sack season -- and with 122 sacks in 13 productive seasons -- the relative cold shoulder can't be pleasant.

    Abraham, who turns 35 on Monday, still could bring value to a team that seeks a situational pass rusher. He just might have to swallow his pride in matters of perceived fiscal worth.
