Falcons RB Devonta Freeman Will Not Hold Out for New Contract

May 16th, 2017

Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman will not hold out for a new deal. 

"I'm a player," Freeman said. And while he has made it known he wants a new deal, he's not willing to hold out into training camp or throughout the season. 

Freeman is a top-five fantasy running back and has tallied over 3,000 total yards over the past two seasons. Those entering summer drafts should not be concerned about his availability in 2017.
