RB - FA
After firing his agent a couple weeks ago, former Falcons and current free agent RB Devonta Freeman has hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent in hopes of joining a team by the end of July.
We want to work out a deal in the immediate future, and we are open to any team,” Rosenhaus said. “He’s healty, he’s in shape, and I’m on a mission to have him give a team a lift in late July.” Freeman’s landing spot will absolutely have an effect on the fantasy outlook of whichever running back(s) he pairs up with. Rumors have swirled about teams like the Eagles and the Buccaneers who both have very young, mostly inexperienced RBs shouldering the workload for the time being. Stay tuned on where Freeman winds up, and expect an announcement in the next couple weeks.
Devonta Freeman’s agent Kristin Campbell terminated their relationship.
Campbell negotiated Freeman’s five-year, $41.25 million extension with the Falcons in 2017, making him the highest-paid RB at the time. The 28-year-old reportedly turned down a offer from the Seahawks in May, and is willing to sit out the season if his contract number isn’t met. Freeman will need to find new representation as he tries to latch onto another team during the off-season. He ran for 657 yards on 184 and hauled in 59 catches for 410 yards with six touchdowns across 14 games for the Falcons in 2019.
Free Agent RB Devonta Freeman told the Buccaneers to "reach out to him directly" to negotiate a deal.
The Buccaneers were reportedly interested in bringing in the veteran RB, but only "if the price tag was reasonable." "A number of teams are interested, but we can’t negotiate through the media, the Buccaneers can reach out to me directly," said Freeman. Multiple teams have been interested in signing Freeman, but have been unable to reach a deal. The 28-year-old ran for 657 yards on 184 carries and hauled in 59 catches for 410 yards with six touchdowns across 14 games for the Falcons in 2019. Freeman will continue to wait it out as he looks to secure a contract with an NFL team this off-season.
Bucs coach Bruce Arians says the team has interest in free agent RB Devonta Freeman "if the price tag was reasonable."
"He's asking for a lot of money and we don't have a lot of money" Arians said. The organization already has Ronald Jones, Ke'Shawn Vaughn, and Dare Ogunbowale in house. A Freeman signing is therefore unlikely but it is interesting to note the team would be willing to bring in another body. Freeman has said he is willing to skip the entire 2020 season if his asking price isn't met.
Per sources, the Philadelphia Eagles have extended a contract offer to free agent RB Devonta Freeman.
The Eagles have also been rumored as interested in Carlos Hyde, who has signed with the Seahawks, and LeSean McCoy. Per sources, the Eagles offered Hyde, but have yet to extend an offer to McCoy. According to McLane, Freeman is still weighing his options, which includes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who will enter the season with third-year back Ronald Jones II and rookie Ke’Shawn Vaughn. There have been conflicting reports about whether or not Freeman was considering retirement, but he squashed those rumors on social media earlier in the week. He’s looking for a certain amount of money, but at 28 years old, he may have to settle for a bit less if he wants to continue playing in the NFL.
