Michael Turner in 2007

I would love to see Turner in a Eagles uni. But I think that Reid is finally satisfied with Buckhalter.

My guess is Bolts give him a mid tender meaning if he goes elsewhere they get a first. Then Turner insists that it be a one year deal and opens his Caymen Islands bank account next year.

You mean his unprecedented health for a guy people claimed wouldn't be able to make it 12 games and couldnt handle a featured RB's amount of touches? Yes Philly could do with a bruiser to complement Westbrook, but they have other more pressing issues, and Turner would be overpaid for as a short yardage guy.

I think there's a few teams out there who might be willing to snag him up at the cost of a 2nd round pic or so..

Panthers (Foster = hurt...all the time), Texans (who knows when DD will play at like his old self again), Giants (Can Jacobs be an every down back?), and maybe the Jets(Is washington the future?) come to mind.

Turner is physical but he is no "bruiser." More of a complete back who will lower his shoulder when necessary. Jacobs, JL are "bruisers" and he nothing like either. He would be a great fit in Philly but they won't go after him with Buckhalter and Westy.

RFAs rarely go anywhere. Even a 2nd round pick would be enough to secure Turner as the backup another year when you consider Javon Walker, Culpepper, and other more proven big names didn't even go for 1st rounders. A 3rd round tender though, I think Cleveland, NY (both), GB, and Houston would be chomping at the bit.

the choices for SD are
High tender: 1st and 3rd
mid tender: 1st
low tender: 5th (round he was drafted)

no way they give him the low, no way he goes anywhere. They might trade him post-tender though.


What are the price tags on the tenders?

$2.3
$1.8
$1.3

??


It is very cheap to retain your RFAs. Turner is not going anywhere in 2007. SD can get him for below market price for a backup RB for 1 more season. And LT is so important to the team they need a solid backup like Turner. I would be surprised if he got more than 100 carries in 2007.

The only one I'll disagree with here is the Panthers. They just spent a first rounder on Deangelo Williams. I sorta doubt they would spend even a 3rd rounder to get another running back.

Still, with the looks of things, Turner isn't going anywhere unless traded. No one will be willing to give a first round pick for him, and San Diego will certainly put more than the 5th round tender on him.

I agree. no real chance the Panthers go after Turner. They have a first round pick in Williams who looked pretty good in limited action.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Yeah the tenders aren't very expensive. But if I'm not mistaken another team can make a bigger offer and sign him as long as they are also willing to give up the price tag of a pick to the chargers.


And isn't a high tender 2 first round picks? I remember the Cowboys had to give up 2 when they sign Galloway.

But to see Williams get injured in his first season isn't something to look high on. I'm not saying that Carolina should go out and get someone else because of it, but I'd be weary especially with Foster already an injury prone guy, don't want Williams to turn out the same. Things can change though...
