This is from an article on ProFootballTalk:
Right now as it stands the Atlanta Falcons have Michael Turner on their roster but they’re expected to release him. While signing Steven Jackson wouldn’t be a revolutionary youth movement it would be a production move and a bold move that shows they’re serious about winning a Super Bowl.
Michael Turner ran for 800 yards last year and averaged 3.6 yards per carry. That was one of the worst marks in the league. To put it in perspective Felix Jones of the Dallas Cowboys averaged 3.6 yards by comparison.
Steven Jackson broke the thousand yard threshold running for 1,042 yards and a more impressive 4.1 yards per carry. Still middle of the pack in the NFL but he played for St. Louis and faced San Francisco and Seattle twice each.
Steven Jackson could bring a balance to that offense that could make it the best, especially if Tony Gonzalez came back. They’d have a playmaker at every position. Not to mention the influence he could have on the young Jaquizz Rodgers who is a similar style player to Jackson.
