Jason Snelling, Falcons backup running back, announces his retirement Tuesday after serving seven years in Atlanta.  He saves the Falcons the hassle of determining whether or not the former seventh-round pick was worth the $1.375 million he was to be owed next season.

Snelling’s career totals amount to be 363 carries for 1,420 yards and eight touchdowns.  Used often in the passing game, he also had 169 catches for 1,249 yards and nine touchdowns through the air.

All that remain in the backfield for the Falcons are Steven Jackson, Jacquizz Rodgers, and Antone Smith.  Before they attempt to go for another back, they should really look for ways to upgrade that offensive line first.
