The Rams are saying that Faulk will enter this upcoming season as the #2 runner behind 2nd year Steven Jackson. Should he be in the Falcons plans?

Faulk is getting up in age, and still has a bit of a high salary, but he's still a very solid back when given the chance to shine. I know we currently have Dunn and Duckett, but should the team dump either (or both) in plans of acquiring Faulk from the Rams, whom I'm sure would be willing to trade him and part ways with his $5.75 million salary.

What about a trade straight up for Faulk, sending Dunn there. Their contracts are pretty similar, so the cap ramifications shouldn't be much of a factor.

The question is, would you make this trade? Would you trade Dunn for Faulk? Or just keep Dunn? Who would be better in this offense?

I think Faulk is a shell of his former self. I wouldn't trade for him yet I also don't think Dunn remains a Falcon beyond this season...

I have to agree with dj. Faulk conceding the #1 job to an unproven jackson just shows how much he has degressed.
