Falcons head coach clarifies his comments on Herschel Walker playing for them

Herschel Walker will not join the Falcons after all

Earlier this week Falcons head coach Dan Quinn talked about having a spot open for 53 year old Herschel Walker, but Quinn clarified his remarks on Friday.

“Look, what I said about Herschel being one of my all-time favorite players is true,” Quinn explained, via ESPN.com, “but nobody should take seriously what I said about having room on the team for him.

“I love him, yes, but some of that was in jest. I love the running backs we have on our roster. We had a great offseason, and I’m excited about going into training camp with that group.”

While Walker might be in better shape than the rookies, this is probably the smartest move for the Falcons.
