Snelling returns

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the AJC reports that the Falcons have re-signed free agent running back Jason Snelling to a one-year deal.

Snelling had been shopping his services to multiple teams over the past week, but ultimately decided to re-up with the Falcons. Snelling adds key depth at the running back position, where the Falcons were likely to rely on rookie Jacquizz Rodgers as the primary reserve to Michael Turner. Snelling served primarily as the team’s third down back the past two seasons, but had filled in admirably as an injury replacement for Turner last season and in the previous year.
