Three reasons Atlanta Falcons fans should just think of 2018 as a year-long running back tryout

Three reasons Atlanta Falcons fans should just think of 2018 as a year-long running back tryout

Fact: Devonta Freeman’s milkshakes never melt The Atlanta Falcons have a deep, talented running back stable. Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman, and Ito Smith: that’s a formidable trio. The Falcons are completely set at running back as training camp nears. What a luxury! But fast forward a year. One year from today, the running back depth chart will have a different look. If you’re inclined to believe the AJC’s D. Orlando Ledbetter, then the writing is already on the wall for Coleman. He’s as good as gone, that narrative goes. Enjoy him while he’s here, they say. But I disagree,...

Devonta Freeman impressed with Atlanta’s rookie talent on offense

The team’s youngest eldest statesman likes what he sees from the younger youth. Devonta Freeman is no one’s idea of an old-timer, given that he’s just 26 years old. He’s still likely to be the senior member of the Falcons running back group this year, however, and he seems plenty qualified to comment on how the team’s incoming rookie class looks. The good news is that Freeman feels as good about the rookies as Dan Quinn appears to, bringing early praise for the likes of running back Ito Smith and receivers Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage. The young guys are fitting right into...

The Falcons will try to make Julio happy. But can they?

Could they have seen this coming? Possibly. Over the past 10 months, the Atlanta Falcons made Devonta Freeman the NFL’s highest-paid back and Matt Ryan its highest-paid anything. With Julio Jones, once the league’s top-salaried receiver, slipping to No. 7, and with the Falcons taking another Alabama wideout in Round 1 this April … well, maybe they should have assumed some famous feathers would get ruffled.

Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman joined truly elite company in 2017

Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman joined truly elite company in 2017

They’re two of only three backs to hit an arbitrary but impressive milestone. The nice thing about statistics is that if you slice them right, you can probably make your favorite players look good. Sometimes, you don’t need to put them under a microscope to accomplish that, and that’s the case with today’s impressive running back stats. Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman, and Ezekiel Elliott are the only three backs in the NFL to average more than 4.2 yards per carry (a solid but not spectacular number) and 8.4 yards per catch (ditto). David Johnson barely played a year ago, which...

It appears that the latter may be poised for an increased role in the offense this upcoming season. Coleman is entering the final year of his rookie contract. As a result, he is expecting a […] The post Falcons RB Tevin Coleman expects more touches in 2018 appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Report: the Atlanta Falcons are promising running back Tevin Coleman a bigger role in 2018

Report: the Atlanta Falcons are promising running back Tevin Coleman a bigger role in 2018

Fact: Tevin Coleman can sous vide most food in ten minutes or less Atlanta Falcons running back Tevin Coleman has a big year ahead of him. He’s entering the final year of his rookie contract, and at stake is his future earning potential. Coleman is the father of twin sons now, so that next contract has a slightly different significance all of a sudden. Given the huge contract the Falcons handed Devonta Freeman before last season, the writing may be on the wall for Coleman. (Although general manager Thomas Dimitroff has continually insisted the Falcons could viably keep both Coleman and...

The Falcons will have the third-most expensive offense in 2018

The Falcons will have the third-most expensive offense in 2018

So that offense better be great. Look, the Atlanta Falcons offense has all the talent in the world. We’ve said it a million times, and regardless of how untrue it looked at times in 2017, this roster is absolutely stacked with playmakers from Devonta Freeman to Julio Jones. Heck, they arguably upgraded at right guard and their third receiver spot, and there’s no reason they shouldn’t take the NFL by storm with Steve Sarkisian hopefully better adjusted. They also kind of have to take the league by storm, considering they have the third-most expensive offense in the entire NFL. Most...
