Should come join the Titans. Perfect back to spell CJ and would give this rushing attack the perfect thunder and lightning combo back.

Get rid of this Jamie Harper weirdo, he's no good at all. Ringer is alright maybe to keep around as a 3rd but he's always injured. I'd rather just keep Reynaud.

But really this guy is going to be released by the Falcons (reports say) and I think he'd be of interest to the Titans who can't rely on just CJ for an entire season again.

I don't really like the idea. Turner's best days are behind him. I just don't see the point in bringing in a veteran at running back when you could just find a younger pair of legs in the draft for peanuts who can give you a better effort.

Harper is garbage, but so is Turner. I would hate the signing very much.

Want nothing to do with him. He's washed up.

He's a 3.0 ypc on a good day type of back now, without the elite explosive ability of CJ2K.

Terrible.

I think it could be a great move.

i find it funny people think Turner is done. Consider this, he only has 200 more career carries than CJ does, and last year was the first year he averaged under 4.1 ypc. He also scored as many rushing TD's last year (10) as CJ has in 2 years.

A decisive, power runner who is an excellent goalline and short yardage specialist? Plus turner has been apart of a tandem form a majority of his career. Sounds like something we definitely need. Especially if they stay true to their commitment to upgrade the interior line. Star's recent heart problems is making Chance Warmack look even more appealing at #10 and I never thought I would say that.

And its not like he'll cost too much. Due to the heavy influx of young talented backs, there isn't a huge market for aging veteran backs. I think we could get him on a economical, team friendly 2 year contract. I'd also do it after the draft. If it shakes out that we can't land a running back we like in the draft, he'd be an excellent plan B in my opinion.

^^^ Good points. I would be open to bringing him in to see what kind of deal he would want. If it was a team friendly deal like George Wilson's deal, I say sign him up.

If Turner is not signed I like the RB Le'veon Bell from Michigan State, Christine Michael from Texas A&M or the RB Knile Davis from Arkansas (he might be Chris Henry 2.0). All (3) of these guys would complement CJ & Reynaud pretty well. IMO
