If you’re a falcons fan still trying to get over the guy wrenching loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl 51. Allow me to try to help you get over it with some news regarding running back Devonta Freeman.
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.

“I want to end my career here,”I love the atmosphere. I love the brotherhood. I love the people, the community I stay in, the malls, the restaurants, the food – I love everything about Atlanta. I want to be here.”
What are your thoughts Falcons Fam? Is Devonta Freeman worth top running back money and how much should the falcons pay him?
Super Bowl 51 fast approaching and Falcons All Pro running back Devonta Freeman is in the news. Agent Christian Campbell released this statement concerning a possible Devonta Freeman contract extension.
Not everyone is happy with this latest development ( myself included). It’s a well-known fact that Owner Arthur Blank does not like outside distractions. For example Michael Vick, Roddy White and former linebacker Prince Shembo.
Clearly he does not like bad publicity. Here are some examples of how fans and writers feel about this latest development (myself included lol).
Final Thoughts – I understand Devonta Freeman is without a doubt an elite running back.
But this is Superbowl 51! He may never have another opportunity to get to this point again (hope not). As a Falcon fan we are sensitive to distractions around Superbowl. I mean who doesn’t remember Eugene Robinson off the field mishap?
This is not on that level but the Falcons know how valuable Freeman is to the offense. No need to make this a public issue.
At least not now.
Christian Campbell!! Please STHU and let Freeman concentrate on the task at hand. Superbowl 51!
If he wins! Money will come to him and he’ll go down as a legend in Atlanta Falcons history.
Please, no more contract tweets.
What are your thoughts?
Atlanta Falcons surprisingly waived defensive tackle Joey Mbu. Many thought Mbu played well enough to be on the practice squad. But apparently Falcons had other plans.
Falcons signed 6’2 300 pound defensive tackle Joe Vellano. Vellano spent time in Indianapolis and New England.
Minnesota Vikings Sam Bradford. Is it a good match?

The Atlanta Falcons added much needed depth by signing two time pro bowl safety Dashon Goldson. Goldson was drafted by the 49ers in the fourth round in the 2007 NFL Draft.
Six years with the 49ers, 278 tackles, 14 interceptions, and 34 passes defensed in 81 games.
2013 he spent two years with the Tampa Bay Sucks…. Where he compiled 117 tackles…. Goldson also played with Washington Redskins.
What does Goldson bring to the Falcons?
With rookie safety Keanu Neal out with minor knee surgery, Kemal Ishmael status uncertain with shoulder problems… Falcons are in need of a safety. Goldson adds leadership, experience and could possibly step in the starting lineup while Keanu Neal recovers…. You like BIG HITS? You got it..
Here are a couple of highlights…

Trufant contract negotiations
Falcons corner Desmond Trufant is without a doubt one of the best corners in the league. Some have him ranked in the top 5, others in the top 10.
HOWEVER! Owner Arthur Blank sees him as a key component in Dan Quinn’s revamped defense.
Question everyone wants to know, Is he worth Elite corner money?
When will the deal get done? NFL Insider Jason Cole answers that question…

Ryan Schraeder the Falcons undrafted free agent, and member one of the NFL’s best tackle tandems… Has signed 2.553 million dollar RFA offer.
The Falcons now await the possibility of an NFL team wanting to sign him to a long term contract.
If that should happen, the Falcons would receive a second round draft pick. Considering how well Schraeder played last year, it’s not impossible.
