Atlanta Falcons Offseason: Breaking Down the 2011 Free Agents: RB Jason Snelling


2010 Stats: 87 attempts, 324 yards; 44 receptions, 303 yards; 5 total touchdowns

Summary: Jason Snelling has done a great job being a back-up running back behind Michael Turner. Although he hasn’t had that many opportunites, he has stepped in when Turner goes to the sideline.

I see this player as another one the Falcons need to keep. With Michael Turner continuing to be the feature back, the Falcons need a number two that can be ready to step in should Turner go down with an injury.

I think Snelling is that guy. He’s not going to make the biggest or best plays, but he will do enough for the Falcons offense should Turner go down.

Verdict: Keep
