Thomas must crunch the #'s to keep him. Big risk if we lock him up. Regardless, I'm happy he made a name for himself.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Falcons are "weighing" moving on from Devonta Freeman.

Rapoport adds that decision is currently "up in the air." The Falcons can save $3.5 million in cap space by simply releasing the soon-to-be 28-year-old and starting over with Ito Smith, Brian Hill (an exclusive rights free agent), and a fresh draft pick or free agent signing in the offseason. Pegged for a bounce-back campaign, Freeman clearly lacked juice (albeit behind poor blocking) in rushing for 184/656/2 and a career-low 3.57 YPC in '19, perhaps making this decision an easier one for the organization. His absence would vacate 51 percent of the team's carries from last season.
