2. Devonta Freeman

Now that certain teams know whether they need additional help at running back following the draft, it seems like only a matter of time before someone is willing to give Devonta Freeman a chance to show he is capable of getting back on the right track.

Early on in his career, Freeman was considered a young running back with a ton of potential in the NFL after back-to-back Pro Bowl season from 2015-16 that consisted of 3,175 yards from scrimmage to go along with 27 total touchdowns.

When taking into consideration the Atlanta Falcons were already fortunate enough to have Matt Ryan and Julio Jones on offense as well, the unit seemed like they were going to be a top group in the league for years to come.

Instead, the Falcons watched Freeman struggle to bounce back in 2019 after only appearing in two games the year before due to injury before eventually deciding this offseason to part ways with the running back.

Since there have been times throughout his career in which Freeman has been considered a workhorse on the football field, one can only imagine how much this could benefit Philadelphia’s offense alongside Miles Sanders and Boston Scott if he were to return to his old form.

Not to mention, since Freeman hasn’t seen many options this offseason, this could be another scenario in which the Eagles could sign him at a much cheaper price.
