The Atlanta Falcons made the Michael Turner release official today. They also added Dunta Robinson and John Abraham as part of the release. The Falcons should save a ton of dough after releasing the vets.
Should the Chargers pursue any of the vets that were just put out on the street?
Turner is a former Charger player and can add some veteran leadership to the runningback group. He would be a backup to Ryan Mathews, but nothing else. The Chargers still should pick up another youngster from the draft if they pick up Turner. His tires barely have any tread on them, so it would just be a stop gap and insurance for Ryan Mathews.
Dunta Robinson would be an interesting signing, but it would probably be better for the Chargers to focus in on signing the younger Antoine Cason for a few more years. Cason is not a fan fave, but he has been getting more and more consistent. Robinson would be better than Quentin Jammer, but Jammer will probably have a cheaper price tag. Plus, if we had Robinson and Bigby in the secondary, I would never know which one is which!
