Falcons release John Abraham, Dunta Robinson, Michael Turner

UPDATE: The Falcons have announced the release of John Abraham, Dunta Robinson and Michael Turner.

The release of Turner and Abraham reportedly would free up an additional $10.4 million in cap space.

Turner, 31, has long been rumored to be among the Falcons' cap casualties. A 2008 escalator clause and 2010-11 performance incentives increase Turner’s 2013 base salary from $5.5 million to $6.9 million. The team’s net salary cap gain would be $4.4 million if he’s released. The running back's production fell off in 2012 when he averaged a career-low 3.6 yards per carry while rushing for 800 yards and scoring 10 touchdowns.

Abraham, 34, is under contract for another two years at $4.25 million and $3.25 million. He's been the Falcons' best pass rusher in the last six seasons including 10 sacks in 2012, but has been mentioned as a possible cap casualty.

Robinson, 30, has been speculated as a candidate to be released with $3 million due in mid-March and $8 million in pay for 2013. The Falcons also have high-priced Asante Samuel among their corps of cornerbacks.
