Default Falcons sign Michael Turner

Source: Turner to get $15M guaranteed from Falcons
ESPN.com news services
Updated: March 2, 2008, 3:34 PM ET

The best available running back in the free-agent market has a new home.

Michael Turner, who has been the Chargers' insurance policy for LaDainian Tomlinson, agreed to a six-year, $34.5 million contract with the Falcons, with $15 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN.com's Michael Smith.

Turner gained 316 yards on 71 carries with one touchdown last season

Well, that's a good move on their part. They can definitely start to build something around Turner. Draft a QB, improve your line as much as possible (It isn't as bad as most people think) and with Joe Horn and the younger receivers as well as Ovie Mughellie and Norwood, that offense doesn't look too, too bad. Of course all of those things happening are doubtful, but Turner is a step in the right direction in my opinion.

Which begs the question: how many vets who have names you've actually heard of before EVER sign for the vet minimum? Besides, he's 33.
