Falcons agree to $41.25 million deal with RB Devonta Freeman”

In 2016, Freeman topped 100 yards from scrimmage in seven games and led the Falcons with 1,541 yards from scrimmage.

Here are five things to know about the Falcons on Thursday: 1.

Last season, Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman emerged as one of the best at his position. Atlanta led the NFL in scoring past year at almost 34 points a game with an offense that featured Freeman, one of the top receivers in Jones and quarterback Matt Ryan, the league MVP.

The newly rich running back caught a touchdown pass on their first possession, as the Falcons offense didn't appear to have lost a beat from a year ago, when they led the league in scoring.

The Atlanta Falcons agreed to a five year 41.25 million dollar extension to make Devonta Freeman the highest paid running back in the NFL.

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.

"We're really thrilled to get this deal gone, knowing what a significant factor he is for us", coach Dan Quinn said. "It's hard for me to say this running back is better than this running back, he's the No. 1 running back because all of us are good". The coach said Freeman never let it become an issue on the field. "It wasn't like I had to, but for most of the guys that are in that contract time, I definitely talk it through and I want to have open lines of communication with them". "The reason I'm saying that is it isn't something that got sideways".
