1.Devonta Freeman could be released by Falcons? (FantasyPros) Falcons owner Arthur Blank says he "loves" Devonta Freeman but acknowledged the team's salary cap isn't "unlimited". Analysis: The Falcons have some salary cap issues this off-season and releasing Freeman would certainly open up some financial flexibility. The 27-year-old played in 14 games last year, rushing for 656 yards and scoring six touchdowns. His status will be one to monitor this off-season.2 days
2.Blank hints Falcons will move on from Fr... (Rotoworld) Falcons owner Arthur Blank said he "loves" Devonta Freeman but acknowledged the team's salary cap is not "unlimited." Analysis: "This has nothing to do with love," said Blank. "It has to do with building a roster. The salary cap is not unlimited. It seems like it’s unlimited, but it’s not." Blank and the Falcons are taking a diplomatic approach to Freeman's likely release, attributing it to the team's valid salary cap concerns—only the Vikings, Jaguars and Steelers have less cap space than Atlanta. But this is much more than a cost-cutting meas... (More)3 days
3.Dynasty | Devonta Freemam could be released (Dynasty League Football) Atlanta running back Devonta Freeman's status with the Falcons is "up in the air" Analysis: Soon-to-be 28 years old and coming off yet another disappointing campaign, the Falcons are trying to determine what role Freeman has with the club for 2020. Reports are that Atlanta was shopping him prior to the deadline in 2019. Signed through 2022, the Falcons do have an out in 2020 which would leave $6M in dead cap space but would also allow the club to seek younger and cheaper options as the rebuild begins. Freeman hasn't eclips... (More)3 days
4.Falcons 'weighing' moving on from Freema... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Falcons are "weighing" moving on from Devonta Freeman. Analysis: Rapoport adds that decision is currently "up in the air." The Falcons can save $3.5 million in cap space by simply releasing the soon-to-be 28-year-old and starting over with Ito Smith, Brian Hill (an exclusive rights free agent), and a fresh draft pick or free agent signing in the offseason. Pegged for a bounce-back campaign, Freeman clearly lacked juice (albeit behind poor blocking) in rushing for 184/656/2 and a career-low 3.57 YPC in '19, perhaps making this de... (More)5 days
5.Falcons | Devonta Freeman may not return (thehuddle) Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman may be a candidate to be released this offseason, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Analysis: Freeman has dealt with injuries over the past several seasons and has not rushed for more than 865 yards in any of the last three seasons. He likely would receive some interest if he hits the free-agent market but may be part of a committee with his new team. Fantasy players can monitor the situation because Freeman may have solid fantasy value depending on his situation.5 days
6.Devonta Freeman: Potential offseason cut (RotoWire) Freeman is facing an uncertain future with the Falcons, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Freeman is expected to keep his starting job if he stays with the team, but there's no guarantee he survives the offseason as the Falcons try to navigate their difficult cap situation. The veteran running back is entering the third season of a five-year, $41.25 million extension, with no guarantees remaining on his contract. Freeman's release would clear out just $3.5 million in 2020 cap space (per overthecap.com), but the number could jump as high as $6.5 million if NFL owners and players agree to a new collective bargaining agreeme...
