Freeman was a monster producer for the Falcons in 2015 and 2016 earlier than accidents and a decline in play minimize into his market worth. He ran for 1,079 yards and added 462 yards by the air in 2016. Since then, he is averaged simply four yards per carry.
Whereas it is likely to be unlikely for Freeman to face up to one other decade within the league, he is seemingly an interesting choice so as to add to a backfield rotation given his pass-catching abilities.
That stated, cash is likely to be sparse relative to what he is in search of. A one-year deal for lower than $5 million could possibly be what he is taking a look at.
The Falcons launched Freeman in March and bought Todd Gurley to be his alternative.
