Freeman spoke with the media about the loss, and gave the latest on his contract negotiations. Freeman is set to be a free agent after the 2017 season and his agent Kristin Campbell let it be known they are looking for top money.
here’s what Agent Kristin Campbell had to say.
“It’s time for the Falcons to pay him like the elite back he is,” agent Kristin Campbell told NFL.com’s Michael Silver. “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.”
Freeman rushed for a career high 1,079 yards and duplicated his 2015 total of 11 touchdowns.
Should the Falcons pay Freeman top running back money?
Let’s be honest. The days of running backs being paid 14 million a year are likely gone. Expect Freeman to be paid somewhere around the neighborhood of 7-8 million a year for 26-35 million total.
