Falcons likely to release Turner

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Falcons are "likely" to release Michael Turner.

That's the extent of Schefter's report, but it suggests a move is imminent, perhaps before the Combine is through. Releasing Turner and his $6.9 million salary is a no-brainer after he wheezed to 3.6 yards per carry during his age-30 season, and failed to surpass 1,000 yards rushing for just the second time since 2007. Turner is one of the most productive backs of the past half decade, but is fading fast. He won't generate much buzz on the open market.

Looks like their fall has officially begun, and all they could manage to get for all of their hard work building the best team evah was a single playoff win. Better luck next time, see you in another two decades.

Not sure how releasing an aging running back is the official start of their fall really.

because he was one of the pieces that they put into place for their run at a dynasty. Those pieces are starting to fall apart now.

He was the 2nd most important RB on the roster last year.....and the RB position was not that important to us.

I think they can find another RB lol. Not every team has to invest 80 million into the position.

Obviously making the playoffs isn't either. Won more games in 2012 than Carolina has in 2 years.
