2 reasons Devonta Freeman may not be worth $41.2 million

2 reasons Devonta Freeman may not be worth $41.2 million”

Miami's second-team offense drove 40 yards to the Falcons' 20 before Atlanta's first-teamers came out of the game.

However, in the same Super Bowl, Freeman missed a block on Dont'a Hightower that led to a Matt Ryan fumble in a momentum-swinging play during the New England Patriots historic comeback. The battle for third string running back behind Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman will be an interesting position battle to watch as the pre-season continues. It includes a $15 million signing bonus and $22 million in guaranteed money.

The Falcons' negotiations with Freeman were complicated by Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell's decision to reject a five-year, $60 million contact offer.

During his three seasons with the Falcons, Freeman has rushed for 2,383 rushing yards, including back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons in 2015 and 2016.

Torgersen, who won two Ivy League Championships for the Red and Blue before graduating this past May, completed his first NFL pass shortly into the fourth quarter - a short dump to fellow rookie Eric Saubert that netted a one-yard loss. In order to prove that he was worth a first round pick, Harris needs to dominate Atlanta's backups tonight and show that he can be a rookie starter. As is the case every year, the first-team is not expected to see many snaps in this game.

While negotiations carried into the start of training camp, the running back said he had no intention of holding out because he didn't want to be a distraction. Ward finished with 48 yards on 11 carries. The Falcons next game will be on NFL Network on August 20th against the Steelers. We all do things that may look better than the other ones. However, while the stadium project is nearly complete, their journey to a Super Bowl championship is far from guaranteed. Wilfork took that as a challenge, and he helped them claim the National Football League title in his rookie year and again in 2014, his last year in New England.

Freeman's enjoying his prime now and he could get better in the next two years and have a great next five seasons.
