Get excited, Falcons fans. Devonta Freeman is going to be better than ever this season. After establishing himself as the engine of the Falcons rushing attack last season, Devonta Freeman has set a goal to be more disrespectful in 2017.
Freeman is the type of player to let his game do the talking. He is the type of runner who can stop on a dime and leave defenders in their tracks, but this year it sounds like he is planning to run through more guys. Devonta Freeman wants to find himself in the end zone a lot this season, and he wants to leave a trail of bodies in his rear view mirror.
“Last year I left some runs out there. Also, continuing to make guys miss (in the open field), punishing guys. I just want to be really disrespectful this year when it comes to football.” Freeman is in the last year of his contract and has made it know he wants a long-term deal from the Falcons. Thomas Dimitrioff has stated nothing will happen this offseason. Rather than letting the contract dispute affect his play, Freeman has reiterated that he is 100% percent focused on the upcoming season and will not holdout.
