Falcons RB Jason Snelling is retiring

The Falcons announced Tuesday that fullback Jason Snelling @JSNELZ44 has decided to retire. Snelling cited a desire to spend more time with his family as the main reason why he is calling it a career now. Snelling was taken by the Falcons in the seventh round of the 2007 draft and turned into one of the game's better blocking and pass-catching fullbacks. He is 30 years old and had one season remaining on his current contract.

Fantasy Analysis:

Snelling was probably told that he was going to be released, considering the likelihood that the Falcons weren't going to pick up his $1.375 million contract for 2014 and saw now as a good of a time as any to hang it up. Regardless, happy trails. Even with Steven Jackson @sj39 still around, the Falcons should be in the market for help at running back or fullback.
