I could be wrong though... just the impression i was under.
EDIT: found the story i was thinking of: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/column...len&id=1988563
Len P specifically says that WHILE the jets tagged Abraham to keep him, OTHER teams are using the tag to trade players.
the lesson as always... i'm an idiot.
