This day fits a bit funereal for Falcons fans, so it's no surprise there are a lot of reactions across the Falconsverse, many of them stunned and sad.
I wanted to round up a few Tweets and share them with you here as we continue to make sense of what the cuts of Michael Turner, Dunta Robinson and John Abraham mean to this football team. I'll have a salary cap implications post coming shortly.
Michael Turner was released by the Falcons... talk about used and abused. #workhorse— Huyleum (@ThankHuyLater) March 1, 2013
If Michael Turner was indeed released...I hope Greenpeace was watching. #Manatee— RumfordJohnny (@RumfordJohnny) March 1, 2013
#Falcons cut Abe, "Burner" Turner & D. Robinson. DE position is now empty. Funds to resign Grimes & Moore? Searching for tough RB!— buck belue (@buckbelue8) March 1, 2013
I like the moves....we had to let go of the baggage! TD gonna use that extra cap space in an awesome way watch! #Falcons— Eric(@MagicFalcon) March 1, 2013
Not surprised to see Robinson and Turner getting released. Abraham? Surprising. #Falcons only had 29 sacks & he was their best pass rusher.— Didier Orméjuste (@DidierRDS) March 1, 2013
I'm so upset. Let me go pour my emotions into something for @thefalcoholic.— jeannathomas (@jeannathomas) March 1, 2013
Still riding with the Falcons regardless of who they cut. They did it for a reason.— FreshPrince!! (@FlyGuyFred) March 1, 2013
John Abraham can still bring heat in a limited role. Had 56 total pressures last season, 6th best 4-3 DE PRP by pass-rushing snaps— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) March 1, 2013
