Atlanta Falcons make some changes

The Atlanta Falcons cut three veteran players today, RB Michael Turner (not Turner the Burner!), CB Dunta Robinson, and DE John Abraham.  This was described as a cost cutting measure in addition to the Falcons attempting to build a younger team.  The Falcons were one of the oldest teams in the NFL last year.  Still, it is hard to see these three veteran players go.  I understand the Falcons are looking for more breakaway speed at the running back position to compliment the passing game of Matt Ryan to Jones, White and company.  Still, change is hard, especially when these guys have been such an integral part of the Falcons organization.  Hope this works out well for the Falcons in the upcoming NFL season!
