Michael Turner: Cut by Falcons
Update: The Falcons have released Turner, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Recommendation: Turner's release will save the Falcons $6.4 million under the salary cap, with fellow vets John Abraham and Dunta Robinson also sent packing by the team Friday. This past season, Turner averaged just 3.6 yards per carry, with 800 yards on 222 carries to go along with 10 touchdowns. At 31, it's unclear how much Turner has left in the tank, but he'll catch on elsewhere, with his fantasy outlook hinging on whether he is brought in to lead his new team's running attack or as a bruising back in a committee situation.
