Pass on Turner. The Falcons also believe themselves to be a SB contender and they are fine with releasing him. I don't see that he adds anything to our current team.

I believe we could find much more value in a current #2 player like Ivory or Bradshaw. If we are going to keep and "older" back on the roster, it might as well be Willis. I do think Jackson would be a significant upgrade, but not at the price.

Lets stick with the youth movement at RB. Find us a gem in rounds 3-5, but this year, find us a "Fox style" back that has more power than Hillman.

Yeah, let's pick up a young RB to plug in and carry the load. I think they're on the top shelf, aisle 5.

Turner is slow and a surprisingly old 31. Pass.

I have no problem with Steven Jackson. He's not young, but neither is our QB, and he needs help with the offense. We're in 'win now', aren't we?

So, we can draft a RB this year, but not too high, right?, because that would be a waste of a draft pick. So let's look to the mid rounds for a guy that can take over and replace what we have, because, yeah, it's that easy I guess.

McGahee is good when he's not fumbling or getting injured. Moreno plays well long enough to start believing, then he drive the stake through the heart with another injury. I like Hillman, but he's not a feature back, and that's ok. There's a place for him on this team.

With the self destruct feature of this team ticking down daily, you don't have the luxury of experimenting drafting chance RB's in the mid rounds, hoping they are the one. If you roll the dice with a 36 year old QB coming off serious injury, trying to secure Jackson within the framework of the team is a no brainer. We don't need a RB of the future right now, unless you plan on taking a top tier back in the draft. The clock is ticking on this team.

Turner is done!!! I would stick to WM over turner any day of the week. Turner is slower than KM by know. And if you guys saw Elway's combine presser you would know what he thinks of KM. Moreno ain't going anywhere.

If we are going to replace WM with a vet, it better be with Jackson or Ivory. Other than that, draft a RB. (Still drool over Lattimore in the 3rd, even 2nd)

Turner is DONE.
Only 5 games last year, including playoffs, did he average over 4 yards a carry. He's not a receiving threat, doesn't have any speed, and also fumbled 3 times last year losing 1.

He isn't going to come in and do better than what McGahee or Moreno did last year, not a chance. Heck I'd really wonder if he'd be any better than Lance Ball was.

Willis is a better pass catcher out of the back field than Turner by far. Willis>Turner. More versitility in the offense. If I had to choose. But I hope they can do better than this this year..

I would take a shot on Knile Davis. I've seen him projected to go anywhere from the the 3rd to undrafted. He lead the SEC in rushing in 2010 over several current NFL backs.

Both Turner and Jackson have been in the league for 9 years. Both remind me of "bringing in DeAngelo Williams". All have had one really good year and basically that's it. If we bring in someone, Dwyer or Ivory. Bradshaw is oft injured also. I like the idea of picking one up late in the draft also.

I think Bradshaw is the most intreguing (sp?) FA. I am not sure about Jackson, he hasn't done much lately, Bradshaw has won SB's which is a good intangible. I know Bradshaw has injury issues and he has a lot of mileage but of the FA's I would like to kick the tires on him the most.

Turner is not an upgrade by any stretch. I would love to see us get Jackson. With our passing attack, being able to really pound a defense into submission with Jackson would create such a lethal 1-2 punch no one would be able to keep us under 20 points.

Shown Greene? I hope not. I live here in New Jersey, and having to watch him over the past couple seasons has been painful. No top end speed, and not much power.

I have watched every team this season, and a majority of their games. Being an East Coast guy also I have seen way too much of Green, and I want no parts. He's slow and soft. I really question our front office.. Green sucks..

Steven Jackson has 13,500 all purpose yards and 64 TDs in 9 seasons. 3 seasons with over 1,200 yds rushing alone. Almost all of that was behind a miserable OLine, with opposing defenses keyed on him because they had no other threats.

One good year? C'mon now.

Chris Ivory and Dwyer are both Restricted Free Agents and not worth giving up a draft picks for.

I like Ivory

No point in spending premium picks on a RB in today's nfl

Agreed soft and slow. He had a great OL in NY and couldn't do anything special.
