Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, Sept. 18.
Fantasy Spin: Freeman was linked to the Eagles this summer, but nothing ever came of it as the team professed its support of Boston Scott and Corey Clement behind Miles Sanders. However, Scott left with an injury early in Week 1 and Clement didn't do much in relief. Sanders is expected to be a full-go in Week 2 after missing the opener, but there's enough chaos here at the moment that it can't hurt to see if Freeman can help. Barring massive injuries to the backfield, however, it's hard to imagine Freeman being a fantasy option in Philly.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) told NFL insider Josina Anderson on Monday, Sept. 14, that he is 'ready for whatever team needs a (veteran running back)' and that he is currently choosing between four teams.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) left his visit with the Jacksonville Jaguars without a deal Sunday, Sept. 6.
Free agent running back Devonta Freeman is visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars in hopes of finding a new home. The 28-year-old back was released by the Falcons in March, but still had a respectable year with them last season by compiling 184 rushes, 656 rush yards, two rush touchdowns, 59 receptions, 70 targets, 410 receiving yards, and four receiving touchdowns. Freeman had also been linked to the Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Philadelphia Eagles this offseason, but nothing came through in the end. The Jaguars would make sense as a landing spot because Leonard Fournette was recently released and Ryquell Armstead was placed on the COVID-19 list this week, leaving the team thin on RB depth.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Jaguars) is scheduled to meet with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: The Jaguars do not have a clear No. 1 running back, so Freeman likely would receive most of the carries if he signs with the team. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because Freeman could be a No. 3 fantasy back if he joins Jacksonville.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent, and Rosenhaus said Freeman is hoping to sign somewhere soon.
Fantasy Spin: Freeman isn't too far removed from being an RB1 in fantasy, but injuries really derailed him the last few years. He can be an RB3 in a situation where he can at least have a 50-50 split.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) was informed that his agent, Kristin Campbell, has terminated their relationship Sunday, July 12.
Fantasy Spin: Freeman still looks to be holding out for more money than his market value is dictating at the moment. He might have to wait for an injury to sign, but he'll be a potential RB3 in fantasy when he does.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) suggested on Twitter that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should contact him directly. 'I read in the media that Tampa Bay Buccaneers are interested,' Freeman tweeted. 'A number of teams are interested, but we can't negotiate through the media, the Buccaneers can reach out to me directly.'
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) is unlikely to land with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Spin: Freeman has really broken down after a couple of really good seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. At 28, he appears little more than a depth back in fantasy.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) would receive interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if he lowered his asking price, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Fantasy Spin: Freeman rejected an offer that would have paid him $4 million, so he may have to wait longer if he is looking for more than that salary. He would be part of a committee if he signed with Tampa but could lead the team in carries in that situation. Fantasy players should continue to monitor his status.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been interested in free-agent running back Devonta Freeman, but head coach Bruce Arians said that Freeman is asking for more money than the team is looking to spend given their current salary cap situation. Tampa has just over $6.4 million in cap space entering the 2020 season. Freeman reportedly declined a one-year, $4 million offer from the Seahawks last month and thinks he's worth more than what he's been offered on the open market. Freeman had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2015 and 2016 but has taken a dive since then and has struggled to stay healthy in recent seasons. The Bucs wouldn't mind adding veteran depth behind Ronald Jones II, but rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Dare Ogunbowale should also have roles in 2020 if the Bucs don't add anyone else to the backfield.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) is weighing contract offers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Philadelphia Eagles, according to sources.
Fantasy Spin: Freeman would certainly have an easier path to a prominent role if he signs with the Bucs. He hasn't played a 16-game season since 2016 and will need to re-prove himself wherever he signs. He doesn't project to be a hot fantasy commodity this season.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) said he does not plan to retire and believes he can play 10 more seasons.
Fantasy Spin: Freeman has rejected at least one offer this offseason and may have to wait for an injury before signing with a team. Fantasy players should monitor the situation, but Freeman may only be a late round option in drafts if he is not a starter.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) may consider retirement if he does not receive a contract offer he likes, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Freeman is probably more likely to accept the best offer he receives at some point.
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation to see if Freeman joins any team. He probably will not be able to find a starting job but could be part of a committee if he finds a good offer. His fantasy value will be determined by the role he receives with his new team.
Free-agent running back Devonta Freeman thinks he's worth more than the one-year deal worth up to $4 million that he rejected from the Seahawks this week, and he insists he's willing to skip the 2020 season if his contract demands aren't met on the open market. Carlos Hyde took the deal instead in Seattle, which surely motivates Freeman even more. The 28-year-old made the Pro Bowl in 2015 and 2016 with back-to-back 1,000-yard, 11-touchdown seasons, but he's been declining ever since and has dealt with injuries the last two years before Atlanta released him. He's veteran depth at this point in his career with a bunch of tread on the tires, and he's unlikely to get a better offer than Seattle gave him. The Jets and Eagles still have some interest in him. Philly would be a better fit from a fantasy standpoint, where he'd be insurance for Miles Sanders.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) is believed to be willing to sit out the 2020 season if he does not receive the salary he is looking for this offseason.
Fantasy Spin: Freeman rejected an offer from the Seattle Seahawks, so he may not sign with a team for a while. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation, but Freeman could only be a late round pick in fantasy drafts depending on his situation.
Free agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) would likely fill a third-down role if he winds up accepting a reported one-year contract offer from the Seattle Seahawks, in the opinion of a Seahawks beat reporter.
Fantasy Spin: That would make a lot of sense with Freeman having caught at least 54 passes in three of his last four full seasons, and current Seahawks lead back Chris Carson having caught 64 total passes in 33 career games. Stay tuned ...
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons), RB Carlos Hyde (Texans) and RB LeSean McCoy (Chiefs) are the three running backs the Philadelphia Eagles are currently considering signing, according to sources.
Fantasy Spin: Miles Sanders likely will receive most of the work at running back, but the team wants to have a veteran backup that can receive some carries each game. Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation because the running back that signs with the Eagles will have some fantasy value.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) has received interest from Philadelphia Eagles this offseason.
Fantasy Spin: The Eagles will be going with Miles Sanders as their main running back, so Freeman would receive limited carries if he joined Philadelphia. Fantasy players can monitor the situation, but Freeman may not have a lot of fantasy value this upcoming season.
Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) has received interest from New York Jets this offseason.
Fantasy Spin: The Jets recently signed Frank Gore, so it is not known if they are still pursuing Freeman. Freeman may have to settle for a backup job next season and would not have much fantasy value.
