With back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons in 2015 and 2016, Freeman became the first running back drafted by the Falcons to accomplish that feat since Jamal Anderson in 1996 and 1997.

Torgersen, who won two Ivy League Championships for the Red and Blue before graduating this past May, completed his first NFL pass shortly into the fourth quarter - a short dump to fellow rookie Eric Saubert that netted a one-yard loss. Here are two reasons the Falcons didn't make the best investment in this new deal with Freeman. We want to make sure that we are easing in with him.

"It was just about me competing, doing what I love to do", Freeman said, via the Associated Press.

"We're really thrilled to get this deal gone, knowing what a significant factor he is for us", coach Dan Quinn said.

According to professional matchmaker, reality TV star and family friend Patti Stanger, there's still hope for the beloved couple . The Hollywood stars, who were married for eight years, shocked the world when they announced their split .

Simms' high number of reps is not a great sign for Torgersen, who signed with the Falcons after going undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Falcons can now continue the blend of Freeman and Tevin Coleman at running back. $22M is guaranteed. In terms of average per year, Freeman's $8.25 average would exceed any current running back...

Others like Eric Saubert, Jalen Collins, and Brian Hill struggled throughout most of their game reps but it would seem unnecessary to judge their future with the Falcons over one bad game. "You know I just feel like we all do things differently - that's we're in the league, that's why we're starters, and stuff like that".
