Falcons Release Devonta Freeman

The Atlanta Falcons are releasing running back Devonta Freeman on Monday, according to a source. The move will save the team more than $3 million against the salary cap. Freeman ran the ball 184 times for just 656 yards (3.6 yards per rush) for only two touchdowns, although he did catch 59 passes for 410 extra yards and four scores. The 28-year-old played in just two games due to injury in 2018 and has seen his body wear down quickly after two Pro Bowl seasons with Atlanta in 2015 and 2016. He can still offer a backfield something in a part-time role, but Freeman's days of having RB1 upside are likely over. Brian Hill, Qadree Ollison and Ito Smith top the depth chart now, but Atlanta figures to address the position in free agency and the draft.

Falcons May Move On From Devonta Freeman

The Atlanta Falcons may move on and release running back Devonta Freeman this offseason to save around $3 million in salary cap space. Freeman is due over $6 million in 2020 if they keep him around. The Falcons strongly considered trading Freeman at last year's trade deadline. The 27-year-old (28 in March) has played in 16 games the last two years due to injuries and had a career-low 3.6 yards per carry and only two rushing touchdowns in 14 games in 2019. Freeman could certainly bounce back in Atlanta's offense or elsewhere as the lead dog, but he has a lot of tread on his tires and may never reach the 1,000-yard rushing mark again. If Atlanta were to release him, Ito Smith and Brian Hill would benefit from much larger workloads.

Devonta Freeman Has A Quiet Week 17

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman carried the ball 18 times in Week 17 for 58 yards and added two catches for 15 yards. The Buccaneers Defense has been solid against the run all season and this week was no different, as they held Freeman to just 3.22 yards per carry. Freeman barely topped 1,000 yards from scrimmage this year and was rather ineffective throughout the season due to various factors such as poor game script and injuries. It's too early to evaluate where Freeman might get drafted in 2020 fantasy drafts because the Falcons may add a younger running back in the draft.
