Remember this guy? Abraham was selected in the third round of the 1996 draft, and he too was impressive right from the start. He became a starter almost immediately, and he recorded his first interception in his third game as a pro. His rookie year yielded five interceptions, and year two yielded exactly the same. Ten interceptions in two years to start a career as a cornerback is pretty good, wouldn’t you say?
After an off year in 1998, Abraham went on a tear. Over the next three seasons he posted 20 interceptions, including back to back seven interception seasons in 1999 and 2000. He earned a Pro Bowl appearance following the 2000 season. 2001 was almost as good, as Abraham picked off six passes that year, though he only started five games. Following that year, Abraham moved on to play for the New York Jets to end his career.
In six years in Tampa, Abraham intercepted 31 passes, good for second in franchise history.
