According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, free agent running back Devonta Freeman has hired agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Just a week after being dropped by former agent Kristin Campbell, free agent running back Devonta Freeman has hired noted power agent Drew Rosenhaus to help secure him a deal ahead of training camp. Freeman has had varying degrees of interest from a number of teams including the Philadelphia Eagles, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Seattle Seahawks, but has been unable to secure an offer to his liking. Eighth among running backs with 59 receptions, Freeman offers flex level upside if he is able to find a team willing to use him in some sort of committee. Hiring Rosenhaus increases the likelihood he signs with a team, making him a potential value as the 68th running back off the board in redraft leagues.
The #Falcons are releasing RB Devonta Freeman, source says, saving more than $3M against the salary cap and moving on from their former starter.
Atlanta will take a $6 million hit in dead money by letting Freeman go, but will also save $6.5 million in the RB's salary. The 28-year old missed most of 2018 and only posted 656 rushing yards with two touchdowns via the ground last season in 14 contests. Freeman should have no trouble finding a new home, but he'll probably have to share the workload in whichever backfield he lands.
