I'm quite happy to let someone else over pay him.

I for one am unconvinced by him.

Some of us want him and some of us think that he'll want more money than he's worth and therefore will pass.

Mostly because we like our running backs like we like our women, younger and with less wear and tear on them.

I would like to have him, but I'm sure the Texans would not offer him nearly enough cash. I think we can get a quality RB somewhere else to fit Kubes system.

Default Re: Michael Turner

I think he will have a big year where ever he lands......but I don't want us to overpay for anybody. If you guys or Atlanta gets him for a good deal and he pans out then it will be worth it. I really like Turner, but I hope we draft a RB (1st or 3rd) or bring in a cheaper vet to go with who we have and hopefully Taylor returns for us next year to compete.

5 mil a year is not too bad he turns out to be the stud most think he will. But as far as overpaying goes, no way Asante lives up to that price tag, I am glad we didn't go after a contract like, geez, way too much money for one person.

Personally i would love to have turner he will be a great change of pace back to give Dayne and Green a breather but only if we could get a 15 million dollar 6 year contract with 3 million in guarenteed money.

I really cant see Miami signing Turner. Ronnie Brown was just about the only highlight for Miami last season before he got injured.

Houston, Atlanta, Jets or Chicago are the 4 teams I see signing him. Out of those, I would go with Chicago, mainly because the Jets have just shelled out on Faneca, and I dont see them getting 2 huge grabs in free agency.

Reports what reports you give info but no link. Looking at stains in your underwear or tea leafs does not consist of reports.

Default Re: Michael Turner

All the pundits have him signing with the Falcons, so why all the Miami talk?
Right now we have Bumb Knee Green, Krispy Kreme Dayne, Lil Dyno Darius, and Chris MIA Taylor. Who needs a RB with these guys? I have to admit I really liked Lil Dyno last year. His size and ability to pass protect is the only negative I saw.

Lito Shepherd? Pleasessseeee, all we have to offer is draft picks so that ain't gonna happen.

We'd better resign Demps.

If Spencer doesn't come back healthy, we're in deep dodo. If Schaub was smart he'd be his workout partner, dietician, and BFF.

I'm curious why we invited Hadnot in, he wanted to play here, and then we refused to even offer him a contract?

Ok, I'm done for now.....

We can thank Tampa Bay for driving the cost of free agent Centers through the roof.

I would like to see Turner in a Texan uniform, but the Green signing from last season and all the $$$ other teams have to spend on free agents makes that unlikely. Either Stewart or Mendenhall dropping to #18 is our best hope, now.
