wow, nice signing. I guess I can cross off Jerious Norwood as my sleeper pick next year.

That is a great move. With Turner and Norwood that will be a good one two punch.

Unless they're in love with Matt Ryan, I don't see Jake Long falling past them if St. Louis passes on him.

The only teams that are possibly going for McFadden now will be the Boys or Dolphins and I don't think the Boys will trade up for him and I don't think that the phins will pick him either.

That is way too much money for a guy that hasn't carried the load. Nearly 6m per year is just silly.

Oops, didn't realize there was another thread. I'm still somewhat pissed the Bears didn't go after him. Will make a nice combo there with Norwood. I'd look to Ryan, Dorsey, or Long there, with health being a factor with Glenn.

Eh....there will be cheaper options in the draf. It makes more sense for the Falcons because they didn't have any important free agents to retain and have more holes to fill (not that we don't have our own).

I'm not sure what everyone is wow'ing though. It's a nice fit but that's a hell of a lot of money for someone that's never started.

I really like this signing, but I am not crazy about the money it took to get him. Oh well, it's better than paying Darren McFadden even more money by taking him with the 3rd pick. Turner is ideal for what Atlanta needs at RB, McFadden wasn't.

As for the draft I hope Atlanta takes Jake Long. He and Blalock would be a dominant left side and would plow the way for Turner. Chris Redman would serve as the stop-gap for whomever the team took in round 2.

But I'm really a fan of this move. Most Falcons fans will tell you Norwood can't handle 15+ carries a game every game. His health just won't hold up with his frame. This essentially combines two good backups who are perfect complements. Turner is the power back that Mularkey craves and Norwood fills the role of scat back. I would look for Turner to see 75% of the carries.

I feel similarly, 51. We've seen Turner make some great runs ... in the 4th quarter, late in the season. We'll see how he does as the starting guy on his own team, without the Chargers' OL.

I wonder how well he can pass protect, because better him than Norwood in that regard.

Great move, I still think Oakland takes DMAc at 4, Fargas isnt enough, provide in dmac and you make jamarcus job so much easier...Turner blends in great with Norwood, he should break off plenty huge runs in the ZBS, ATL is not as far away as people think...Roddy is a playmaker, all you need is to build the line with the proper pieces and find someone to manage the offense.

Good Sign for the Falcons. Turner is a much better fit for the Falcons than DMAC would have been. Atlanta is a few years away from being good again. They should draft Long sure up there Oline then next year hopefully draft a better QB prospect than Ryan.

Adrian Peterson has more rushing yards and touchdowns in one year than Turner has in four years.

Sorry, had to say it. :)
