Falcons GM says he is confident they can work out a long term deal with their RB

Deovonta Freeman is about to get paid

Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff appeared on SiriusXM Radio’s “Schein on Sports” and said he is confident he can get his running back Devonta Freeman under contract. 

“Like I’ve said before, we want him here and he’s a very important part of our organization,” Dimitroff said, according to Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com. “Contrary to what people were saying around the Super Bowl time with what came out, we’re ready in the relatively near future to have some discussions with their representation. 

“Devonta, he’s a really good guy, he’s really — as far as his personality — he’s so hyper competitive,” Dimitroff continued. “He’s an urgent, angry runner, which we want and we know is important for us. We want him to be around for years to come and we’re confident that we’ll be able to get it done.”

Freeman ran hard last season and I have a feeling he will be getting a monster pay day very soon.
