Falcons Training Camp: Michael Turner Still Wants To Be A Workhorse

Since coming to the Atlanta Falcons, Michael Turner has been an absolute workhorse. The team has tried to bring in backup running backs to ease Turner's load a bit, but he still has over 300 attempts in three of his four seasons with the team.

A now 30-year old Turner still wants to be the man on offense but is willing to wait and see what new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter does with the scheme.

"We’ll see," Turner said. "It always goes with the flow of the game. You can’t even say that we are going to go out here and throw the ball 50 times or run the ball 30 to 40 times. It all goes with situations. We play situational football."

Turner ran for 1,340 yards last season and 11 touchdowns.
