How are there “rumors” that he’s overweight? He’s either fat or not fat. It’s like having a “rumor” that he’s black.

One sure way to lay those rumors to rest: Mr. Turner would you step on the scales please?

What rumor???? He has been overweight on the verge of obese since he came to Atlanta. Must be that food southern cookin!

C. Tampa — That’s funny.
He’s been productive. RB coach Gerald Brown has also defended him.
Some radio guy started the overweight stuff. I don’t know which one, but I started getting a bunch of questions about Turner being overweight. He says that he’s not.

I was there at camp today and talked with Mike.If you look at the crowd you see fat people.You look at Mike and you don’t so if you want to believe rumors fine be a fool.Or you can figure that fat people don’t run most of the day in the heat like Mike or practice football.I get it that you guys just want to snark so have at it.If thats what makes you happy.LOL

I bet he doesn’t tippy toe around the buffet like he does in the line in a game!

There is no way Mr. Turner “Da Burner” is coming into camp fat. Remember guys he has people behind him that want his starting position. Snelling, Dimitri, Rogers,etc. The only rumor to listen too is that the DirtyBirds will win the Eastern Division and on to the big dance.

Fat or not, he is still probably the slowest starting tailback in the NFL.

Remember last year he also said he came in at the same weight but said he worked on re-adjusting the weight. I guess from the stomach to the buttocks?. It is a shame he won’t work out hard in off season to loose 15 lbs and to get a step quicker this year. Think of how good he would be if he was quicker.
