Falcons likely to release Turner

Sad news from the ATL regarding the Atlanta Falcons.  ESPN reports that the Falcons are likely to release RB Michael Turner.  Say it isn’t so!!  Turner holds the record for the most rushing TD’s in the franchise’s history.  Last year, there was buzz that the Falcons needed to upgrade at the RB position, perhaps getting someone who had more speed and was likely to break away for the long run.   Turner is a bruiser, a bowling ball type runner, but very successful at that position.  They did not nickname him Michael the Burner without reason!  If it does come to pass, he will be missed!
