That Money! Money! Yeah! Yeah!
Alright Falcons Fam you can finally relax. Ian Rapoport is reporting Falcons running back Devonta Freeman has agreed to a five year extension with the Atlanta Falcons.
Falcons will pay Freeman more than half of his salary in the first three years.
The front loaded contract will allow the Falcons to potentially sign his running mate Tevin Coleman who is under contract til 2018
Final Thoughts – I wanted to know what Falcons Fans thoughts are on Devonta Freeman’s deal?
So of course I took a poll
Falcons Fam were you wondering how things were going to change under new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian?
Well According to AJC DOrlando Ledbetter. Sarkisian has put a small wrinkle into the offense early in camp.
Showcasing running Back Devonta Freeman pass catching ability in unique different ways.
What are your thoughts on using Devonta Freeman in screens? Good or Bad idea?
Falcons shifty running back Devonta Freeman cracked the NFL Network Top 100 list for the second year, coming in at 41. Ahead of Jay Ajayi (69) LeGarrette Blount (80) and Adrian Peterson (98).
Freeman was a key part in Falcons Super offense rushing for 1,079 yards 54 receptions 13 TDs. If you’re not a stat guy, listen to the players who play against him such as Panthers DT Kawan Short and Jacksonville Jaguars DT Calais Campbell.
Falcons Fam another rumor has been put to rest by Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff. A rumor started by the irritating Campbell’s.
This time Kristin Campbell was completely innocent. I cannot say that for her husband Uncle Luther “Luke” Campbell.
Falcons made a series of moves signing Quarterback Matt Schaub to a two year 9 million deal and announced they were negotiating Pro Bowl cornerback Desmond Trufant extension.
Uncle Luke wasn’t real happy about it and posted this tweet.
Thomas Dimitroff in an interview quickly shutdown the idea of Devonta Freeman is being shopped.
Here’s what Dimitroff had to say.
“We have a good dialogue,” said Dimitroff. “I think Freeman’s in a good spot. This is where he wants to be, [and] we want him to be here for years to come.”
“It’s not going to be a contentious issue in my mind. I think it’s going to be one that’s going to be fairly quick. We know what the market is and we’re confident we can get something done. Again, when the time is right. It won’t be during this free-agency period.”
I hope this puts to rest the idea that Devonta wants out of Atlanta and hopefully the Campbell’s learn to keep their DAMN MOUTH SHUT.
If not,Freeman will have to make a choice between his image (being a distraction) and firing his agent.
Hope it doesn’t go that far. But you never know in the world of entertainment.
What are your thoughts FalconsFam?

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.
