Who Does Devonta Freeman Think He Is?

A year ago, I wrote a post about how Devonta Freeman was never a good football player. I think since Kyle Shanahan left Atlanta, more and more people have caught on to that idea. Freeman did nothing before Shanahan and will do nothing after. Now he doesn’t even have a job. Worse yet, Freeman could have a job but turned down a solid pay check from Seattle that Carlos Hyde ended up taking.

Here’s my question. Who does Freeman think he is? Turning down lucrative contracts, threatening to sit out the season, and just being an overall idiot. Hey, Freeman. You already skipped the last two seasons because you suck. Alfred Morris, Tatum Bell, Steve Slaton, and Devonta Freeman. He’s just another schmuck that was lucky to be in the right environment.

2015 and 2016 are the two years Shanahan was the offensive coordinator for the Falcons. They are the only years that Freeman had double digit touchdowns, over 1,000 yards, and made the Pro Bowl. What Freeman should do is send Shanahan thank you cards. If it’s not for Kyle Shanahan, we don’t know who Devonta Freeman is. He flames out of the league in 2 years. Instead, Freeman thinks he’s somebody. What a joke.

I hope teams let him rot on the free agent market. All of these stories are such a joke! Freeman is not in a position to make demands because the smart people know the truth. The former Falcons running back will never do anything before Kyle Shanahan and never anything after. It’s just the truth.
