by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports free agent Michael Turner plans to continue playing football in spite of not having a contract. Turner was released in March by the Falcons after failing a physical. He hurt his ankle in the NFC title game.

Falcons release Turner
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
The Falcons have released Michael Turner on Friday, ending a five-year stint with the team. Turner had his worst season with Atlanta in 2012, posting a poor 3.6 rushing yard average across 222 carries, good for 800 yards, but with 10 rushing touchdowns. He scored double-digit touchdowns every season for the Falcons but his production waned beginning toward the end of the 2011 season. Turner plans to keep playing. "I'm excited to begin a new chapter of my career and truly believe I have a lot left in the tank," Turner wrote on his Facebook page. "... Even though it’s a tough day I'm excited for what the future holds."

'Tough decision' coming on Turner?
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
On the same day ESPN joined in the chorus of reports expecting the release of Falcons running back Michael Turner, Atlanta head coach Mike Smith would not squash those reports. When asked about the Turner rumors, Smith said nothing Friday to squash them. "This time of the year there's tough decisions that have to be made," Smith said when asked specifically about the rumors Turner would be cut. "We're recalibrating our roster. Michael's under contract right now and we'll continue to go through the process in terms of how we're going to recalibrate it."

Report: Falcons done with Turner
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
The National Football Post believes the Falcons will be in the market for a new running back, signaling the end of Michael Turner's tenure with the team. Scouts believe Turner's ability to bounce and cut has declined, though he still has value as a downhill runner. Turner is set to make $6.9 million in 2013, a number likely too rich for the Falcons' tastes after he averaged 3.6 yards per carry in 2012.

Turner a cap casualty?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution speculated Tuesday that running back Michael Turner could be a salary cap casualty. He's due to make $6.9 million in 2013 after hitting contract escalators last season. The team might try to renegotiate his deal first before letting him go. A previous report from the paper said the Falcons would likely use a running back-by-committee approach, possibly without Turner.
