Devonta Freeman willing to skip 2020 season
Free agent running back Devonta Freeman said he is willing to sit out the upcoming season if the salary he wants isn't offered.
According to Michael Silver, Freeman believes he is worth more than what he is currently being offered and is willing to sit out the season if teams don't match his asking price. Freeman has generated interest from the Eagles and the Seahawks, but with Seattle adding Carlos Hyde earlier today, his market has shrunk. The Eagles are likely to remain interested after losing Jordan Howard to Miami, who handled 119 of their 385 carries last season (30.9%).
Freeman, who turned 28 in March, was Pro Football Focus' 84th ranked running back last season, with a grade of 60.8.
