Help on turkey brine.

Tonight I was about to brine my Butterball turkey for 12 hours, when I noticed after unwrapping it, the turkey had a purplish color all over it. I know this may seem like a silly question, but I can't remember any turkey's I've smoked in the past, having a blue or purple color all over it. Could it be that the blood has just settled?[p]I thawed it in the frig over a four day period, like the directions called for on a 14 pounder. It smells fresh. What do you think, I don't want to get anyone sick! Should I continue, or cook steaks instead on the Big Green one??[p]Thanks for the help! :)
