Falcons ready for Turner-round
By AJ Mass
With Michael Turner already with one foot out the door in Atlanta, and the team getting ready to shove him into the free agent market, what will the Falcons do in order to fill the void left by the running back's departure?
According to ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas, there's no need to rush out and break the bank to bring in a free agnet veteran like Reggie Bush. "They don't need a superstar," Yasinskas writes. "They just need someone to share time with Jacquizz Rodgers."
He adds that there will be plenty of running backs available from the second round of the upcoming NFL Draft on. The team could certainly grab Montee Ball or Giovani Bernard with pick No. 60, and might even be able to wait until their third round pick comes along and still find themselves with a Mel Kiper-endorsed back still there for the taking.
