Atlanta Falcons Offseason: Breaking Down the 2011 Free Agents: RB Jerious Norwood

2010 Stats: 2 attempts, 8 yards; 1 reception, 9 yards

Summary: After suffering a knee injury in the second week of the season against the Arizona Cardinals, Jerious Norwood spent the rest of the season on the sideline.

I don’t think injury should be a valid reason for letting someone go, but the Falcons should part ways with Norwood due to the emergence of Jason Snelling.

Sure, Norwood offers that burst of speed that the Falcons don’t have on offense, but Norwood just hasn’t produced in his last two seasons with the Falcons. He only has one touchdown in the last two years.

It is time to let him go, but only if you can find someone that can be a valuable asset as the third string, which shouldn’t be hard to do.

Verdict: Let Go
