Falcons release Michael Turner

USA Today - [Full Article]

The Atlanta Falcons on Friday cut three veteran stars central to recent playoff success, including an appearance in last season's NFC Championship Game.

Running back Michael Turner, cornerback Dunta Robinson and defensive end John Abraham were released, the team announced.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Falcons have already been tied to Steven Jackson, which would be a good fit for both sides. Turner's departure leaves Jacquizz Rodgers as the lead back in Atlanta, though the Falcons are likely to add an RB, either by free agency or the draft.
