Having been left standing in the cold by the Giants, Rams, Chiefs and reportedly (sort of (maybe)) the Dolphins and Bengals as well, Atlanta Falcons free agent RB Jason Snelling has decided to stick around the A for one more year, according to Pat Yasinkas.
Watching Snelling's stab at free agency was awkward and not fun at all. He's a multi-talented player who could help any team in a variety of ways, but for some reason players like Cadillac Williams came off the board before he did. The market simply had too many running backs, it appears.
Some NFL teams may be wising up about backs in general, as they're the players most likely to be injured and the least likely to contribute for many years. Snelling's array of skills makes him more valuable than any old back, of course, but not every team is going to realize that.
It all worked out in the end for the Falcons, apparently, who likely got a good deal on their backup running back.
With this move, free agency is likely just about over for Atlanta, though they might pick up a cheap veteran defensive back or some such at some point.
