Falcons, Devonta Freeman reportedly negotiating five-year extension

Devonta Freeman

The Atlanta Falcons and Devonta Freeman continue to try to hammer out details of a contract extension.

According to Mike Silver of, Freeman and the Falcons are in discussions over a five-year extension — but it’s still enough of a doubt that the running back has purchased a $10 million insurance policy as protection in case there is no deal.
