Cut Friday by the Falcons, defensive end John Abraham took the high road when the time came to talk about the team.

Possibly because he knows he could be back.

We are going to take it day by day,” Abraham told NFL Network regarding the possibility of a return, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “They have to weigh their options, I have to weigh mine. If something better comes up for either one of us, I think we are going to make it happen.”

Abraham, who was wearing Falcons gear during the interview, was asked whether the team is better without him. And he didn’t say no.

“You never can tell,” Abraham said. “It is like when San Francisco changed quarterbacks -- it could have been a good move or a bad move, but they ended up going to the Super Bowl. You really can’t judge that. You hope for the best, you hope for the best for Atlanta. I have so many friends on the team, I don’t want to see them do bad.”

Especially since he may be doing bad, or good, right alongside them.
