ESPN predicts RB Devonta Freeman to Bills

 

EDITED for easier reading.   Whole article here:   https://billswire.usatoday.com/2020/02/11/espn-devonta-freeman-taysom-hill-buffalo-bills/

 

ESPN finds a scenario where Freeman replaces Frank Gore:

With Freeman likely to be cut by the Falcons and veteran Frank Gore moving on from Buffalo, the Bills need a back to take some of the reps away from Devin Singletary. Freeman would take over as the goal-line and early-down specialist.

ESPN predicts a one-year, $3 million deal for Freeman with the Bills. That deal would be in line with the type of minimal deal the Bills would want to give to a veteran back, like they did with Gore.

Freeman would feature in a veteran role with Singletary, while also providing a better option in the receiving game. He cause 59 catches in 2019 with the Falcons and 257 in his career, including 73 in 2015. But by most accounts, Freeman took a step back in 2019.

 

 

 

OP:   I don't know what happens to the Falcons DeadCap space if they cut Freeman, so we will see.

Good player, but injuries are a concern.

On a reasonable contract I'd take him. He is very similar to Singletary.

I would rather sign Matt Breida or Jordan Howard in free agency.

Breida is restricted so that almost never happens. 

Freeman is way better than Howard.  Way better.  Nothing worked in Atlanta this year so I'm sure he can bounce back.  Also, he offers a TON as a pass catcher which is something Buffalo needs to compliment Singletary.  It can't be a scenario where they put the other guy in and teams know we won't throw to him.  I'd be all over this signing for 1 year three mil as reported.

If he is a good pass catcher, and we need a 2nd RB anyhow, sign him and release TJ Yeldon at the end of the summer.

Singletary, DeVonta Freeman, and TJ Yeldon going into training camp.    Maybe even a late round RB.  We have three 5th round draft picks, and two 6th round picks.

Injuries happen, so no need to cut ties with Yeldon until you have to reduce your roster size.

Breida was an undrafted free agent so there is no draft pick compensation if the 49er's don't give a 2nd round or 1st round tender on him. I highly doubt they will tender him.

IMO Beane will sign a bargain RB in free agency and draft a RB in the mid rounds.

Devonta Freeman's future in Atlanta is in doubt.

Once a rock-solid marriage, it appears as if the running back's union with the Falcons may be nearing its end. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday the Falcons are considering parting ways with Freeman less than halfway through his five-year contract extension.
