g-dawg Posted February 26, 2008 Share Posted February 26, 2008 With so many "impact" players getting franchised, I'm starting to just think "what the ****" and let's go after Michael Turner - "Turner the Burner" is fast but not as Fast as Run DMC - however, Turner is much thicker than McFadden and will be a better power runner in Mike Mularkey's system.I would guess it would take a $40million dollar contract and 5years to get a deal done. You could backload some salary in that last year to make it a virtual 4 year deal. Turner is 26 now so this would take him up to age 30 where RB's start losing their stride.This would free up the first round pick and others to avoid the RB position. Also, Michael Turner is a "known commodity" in the NFL and his game translates for sure and is not "projected" as to how he will play in NFL. Also Michael Turner is a power runner with speed so he is perfect for Mike Mularkey's system.I was not originally for signing Michael Turner but free agency has gotten so "skinny" with all the franchise tags that there is very little left over and Turner is high quality....what say you? if the money gets stupid for Turner, then we just "bow out"...
