The Atlanta Falcons today announced that they have agreed to terms with running back Devonta Freeman. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Freeman, 5-8, 206 pounds, was selected by the Falcons in the fourth round (103rd overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft. He became the first Florida State running back since Warrick Dunn to rush for over 1,000 yards when he logged 1,016 yards on 173 carries in 2013. Freeman is the sixth player in Seminole history to accomplish that feat. He led the team in rushing during both his freshman and junior campaigns, becoming the 15th player since 1947 to pace the offense in multiple seasons. Freeman's 30 rushing touchdowns are tied for third in school history while his 2,255 career rushing yards are tied with Falcons RB Antone Smith for the eighth most in school history.
