Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff and his staff plans to work “full time” on getting a contract extension done with Pro Bowl running back Devonta Freeman, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
He wouldn’t rule out having a deal done before the first practice on Thursday, but was not overly optimistic.
“That’s just a few days away and I’ve always said that I think it’s going to be a fairly expeditious negotiation, but you never know,” Dimitroff said on Monday “I would love for it to happen, but if it doesn’t we’re not throwing up the caution flag at all. We’ll just continue to work through it.”
