As the Atlanta Falcons prepare to face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI, third-year running back Devonta Freeman will surely need to play big for Atlanta to obtain their first Vince Lombardi trophy.
However, following next season, Freeman will become an unrestricted free agent, which is why it wouldn’t be surprising to see the two parties come to an agreement this offseason. Freeman’s agent, Kristin Campbell, believes her client’s value shouldn’t be overlooked.
“It’s time for the Falcons to pay him like the elite back he is,” Campbell stressed. “I expect them to make him a priority this offseason, as he’s been an integral part of the dynamic offense that has gotten them to the Super Bowl.”
Campbell stated how Freeman is a top-three back in the league, but the only problem with that is the fact Freeman is forced to share the load with Tevin Coleman.
