Dan Quinn Says Falcons “Have Room” For Herschel Walker

Recommended Posts

Former NFL running back Herschel Walker sayshe can still play football. Current Falcons coach Dan Quinn says, “Bring it on.”

Appearing Tuesday at a Buckhead Business Association meeting, Quinn said the Falcons could use Walker.

“He’s one of my favorite all-time players,” Quinn said, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “Yeah, we have room for him. . . . He’d definitely fit in great from a competitive standpoint.”

It’s unclear whether Quinn was serious about the invitation to Walker. It’s also unclear whether Walker is serious when he says he can still play.

If both sides are serious, why not arrange a workout? If Walker makes the team, the 53-year-old tailback would become the oldest player in NFL history, by a full half decade.

If Walker’s claim sounds familiar, it should. In 2014, while still a mere 52, Walker said he could still play in the NFL.

So when is he actually going to give it a try?


Do you think DQ was serious? Do you think Herschel would be good? It would be pretty legendary from an entertainment standpoint

Well, it would certainly be a childhood dream come true. Herschel broke my heart twice. leavimg UGA to join the USFL, and becoming a Dallas Cowboy.

Imagine this: Herschel Walker smashing his way into the end zone for a game winning TD, in a Falcons Uniform, in the Super Bowl.

I heard Dan Patrick interview him a couple of days ago.

He said he still runs a 4.35 forty. He said he likes to do what

he wants to do and not what other people would like for him

to do. He indicated he wasn't interested in playing football at

this point.
