The Signing Of Snelling Means....what?

Does it mean that Turner is on the trading block? I cant imagine they release him out right. I personally think the best we can get for Turner is a 3rd round pick, it will probably be 4th though. Im not saying I want Turner gone at all, just trying to read the cards like everyone else. Snelling/Quizz/Smith can get the job done...that I am sure of. We could also add another back through FA or the draft. Dont be surprised if Turner is on the trading block. An out right release...I just cant see. Then again it saves 5mil....

Ok the question is; would we rather have Turner and his 5mil cap hit this year, or Snelling/Quizz/Smith and a possible addition and free up that 5mil?

We know Turner has slown but is still productive and a top 5 RB, we also know that his role will be greatly reduced this year, and it should.

For me, I say put Turner on the trading block and just see what we can get for him. If we can get a 3rd, I say trade him and go with the RB by committee act. Also recoup that 5mil that Turner would have counted against the cap and use it elsewhere.

If we cant get a 3rd, then keep him and just use all the backs accordingly. Either way, this is his last year with us, that much is obvious.

Just my thoughts....

What did it mean last year? That Snelling will be in a Falcons uniform. That is it.

Why does every move made have to have some underlying motive behind it?

I do support the cutting/trading of Turner though. Save 5 mil on the cap, fix the line.

If the OL is great any RB can run behind it. It might hurt us in the short term, but this is the biggest FA pool ever. We need impact players on the lines and we need them now.

Because they often times do, not saying this is the case but its not far fetched.

What it means? It simply means that Snelling is back and he wanted to play for the Falcons. Nothing more, nothing less.

Maybe not, the market on RBs is not strong, unless you are AO or Foster type back, you are not gettn a big pay day. Snelling is more valuable here than anywhere, no one was going to pay him anything significant. We are over loaded at RB, I was looking forward to seeing a lot of Quizz. With Snelling back, even with a new OC, that limits Quizz chances. Im thinking maybe Snelling can be converted to full time FB, cause Ovie is good as gone...an injured 3mil/yr FB...please.

1. Maurice Jones-Drew, JAC 1606 2. Ray Rice, BAL 1364 3. Michael Turner, ATL 1340 4. LeSean McCoy, PHI 1309 5. Arian Foster, HOU 1224

Any questions? Mr HAHAHAHA...thought not, come with facts...not your obviously WRONG opinion!

Nice logic. According to you..

Hawaii and Houston have the best QB's in college football every year.

Thomas DeCoud plays the ball much better than Brent Grimes.

Roman Harper is a tremendous pass rusher.

etc.

Stop looking at misleading stats and actually judge the player on what they're worth. Turner isn't even near top 10, top 5 is hilarious.

Turner is a top 5 RB?

hahahahahahah

Laugh all you want, but I want you for a second to take off the Falcon colored glasses, and imagine Turner wearing a Packers uniform, with that offense, or a Patriots uniform, with that offense. He still has value, he can still run, but we all here are ready to ship him off because we want to get away from the plodding run on first, run on second, then pass offense that Mulkarkey was in love with. I say we could get a 4th out of him if he gets traded.

Now add in all of those RB's receiving yards.

Why? receiving yards for a RB are nice yes, but that is bonus, not main criteria for a good RB. If thats the case Vick rushed for 1,000 yards while only passing for 2400 in 06..does that somehow mean he was as good or better than the other QBs in that range? I think not. Sure Forte, Rice, Drew have a much greater ability to receive, does that mean they are better RBs? For me the answer is no.

I want to get rid of him because it will save us 5 mil on the cap, he has zero value in the receiving game and because he doesn't show up against good defenses. We need more speed @ the RB position. We are supposed to be seeing more screens ect with the new OC. Those aren't going to be ran with Turner. 5 mil is too much for a RB that is supposedly going to be on a 'snap count' this year.

I don't even know what to say to this logic. Notice how all of the actual best RB's in the league all have the ability to catch the ball?

MJD is an excellent receiver

Ray Rice is an excellent receiver

Lesean Mccoy is an excellent receiver

Arian Foster is an excellent receiver

Matt Forte is an excellent receiver

Chris Johnson is an excellent receiver.

Turner is basically the only top 10 RB with ZERO value in the passing game.

The stupidity of our fans is amazing.

It's all black and white to them. HB = rush yards, DE = sack, and knowing them.. DB = int.

I'm not going to try to explain anymore, it's pointless. Lol.

I think it has more to do with the future and possibly FB...

Agree. If Turner is retained our RB situation will be as last year. If he goes( if we could get a 3rd rd. pick we should jump all over that) then we draft a replacement this year from a deep RB class and let him work into the rotation with Snellen and Rogers doing the majority of the work. Either way, RB should not be a problem in 2012. Don't know how the 2013 RB class looks but it's deep this year, and if Turner is back we will likely get nothing, or near nothing, for him next year.
