Falcons running back Warrick Dunn sounds like he isn't sure he'll be in Atlanta next season. If not, returning to Tampa wouldn't be so bad, he says.

In this story in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Dunn acknowledges the possibility that he could be cut considering the new coaching staff's desire to establish a power running game. Dunn wouldn't seem to fit into that plan given his small stature and shifty running style.

The possibility is real enough for Dunn to consider what his options might be if released.

"If I wasn't a Falcon and I went back to Tampa or played for coach (Tony) Dungy (in Indianapolis), it would be something that's full circle," he said. "It's not what I'm hoping for and wishing for, but you never know."

Wouldn't be something to see Dunn back in a Bucs uniform, back with the team that drafted him? A lot would have to happen before this could become even a possibility, but you have to think Dunn would strongly consider coming back to play in a city where he still ranks among the area's most beloved athletes.

Just something to chew on during this quiet part of the calendar.
