The Atlanta Falcons addressed their biggest issue coming into training camp. Devonta Freeman has a new contract.
The defending NFC champions agreed to terms Wednesday on a five-year, $41.25 million extension with Freeman, making him the highest-paid running back in the league in terms of the overall package. It includes a $15 million signing bonus and $22 million in guaranteed money.
LeSean McCoy of Buffalo Bills had been the highest-paid back with a five-year, $40 million deal signed in 2015.
Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant is a step closer to returning to the league full time.
