FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Two straight seasons as a 1,000-yard rusher have made Devonta Freeman a bargain as he enters the last year of his rookie contract.
For a player, that's a bad place to be. It's why Freeman is looking for an extension to his deal before the 2017 season.
Freeman said Tuesday he's confident the new deal will come. He said he will remain patient rather than consider holding out of training camp as a negotiating ploy.
