atljbo Posted March 1, 2008 Share Posted March 1, 2008 A seat behind Arthur Blank and Arena Football League commissioner David Baker was being saved for San Diego Chargers running back Michael Turner, who was expected to arrive at the Gwinnett Arena about 2 p.m. Saturday."This is his second day here and we're looking forward to spending a lot of time with him," Blank said moments before the Georgia Force's 1 p.m. season opener. "We're hoping to have him sign here with us, but we have to wait and see. We have a lot of work to do yet."Blank said he'll be entertaining Turner and three other free agents for dinner tonight, though he declined to say where."When free agents come to Atlanta, they're not just interested in the team," Blank said. "They're interested in the city, the community, the organization and the ownership. It's really a chance for them to get a feel for the organization and the people here."This is an opportunity for him to see another football game. He's probably never seen an Arena football game before. Maybe he has, I don't know." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
