PFW: Falcons commitment to Turner solid in 2012
Over the weekend in their NFC Whispers section, Pro Football Weekly indicated that Falcons sources while acknowledging the possibility that the Falcons could part ways with Michael Turner this off-season, the team seems committed to bringing him back for at least another season.
Some team observers in Atlanta have suggested the Falcons should at least consider parting ways with RB Michael Turner this offseason, but we hear the team’s commitment to him through at least 2012 — he’s signed through 2013 — is solid.
Turner turns 30 next week and is coming off a solid where his 1,340 rushing yards ranked third in the league. He carries a $7.5 million cap hit this year and there are indicators that his performance is starting to take a substantial dip.
