Erstwhile Chargers running back Michael Turner, best known to fantasy players as the guy you picked up in a late round in hopes that LaDainian Tomlinson would get injured (BUT NNNOOOOOO HE HAD TO WAIT FOR THE PLAYOFFS FOR THAT), got on the 6-year-deal train which seems so popular this off-season and is now heading to the Falcons.
Falcons fans seem a little elated, and when your other option is Jerious Norwood, why wouldn't you be? But this "beginning of an era" stuff might be a touch hasty. I mean, the team has two running backs, no quarterback and no receivers. Doesn't that just make you the Vikings?
