Three longtime veterans are on the way out in Atlanta.
Although it’s a little jarring to see three well-known players all being put on the scrap heap, none of these cuts is a major shock. With the new league year looming, this is the season for expensive, aging players to be dumped as teams focus on building with younger and/or cheaper players.
Still, the Falcons now have some holes on the roster as they attempt to build what they hope will be a Super Bowl contender. Robinson was a starting cornerback, Turner led the team in rushing and Abraham led the team in sacks. Now they’re all gone.
