Devonta Freeman In Falcons Jersey

The one bright side for Devonta Freeman, who wanted badly to be at organized team activities with the rest of the team but instead was winging out to California for a NFLPA rookie premier event, was that he gets to be the first rookie in a full Falcons uniform.

Freeman should be rejoining the team this week and practicing, hoping to unseat Steven Jackson or at least cut into his carries.

There's little question Freeman will be a prominent piece of the backfield going forward, even if I don't expect him to dominate carries in his rookie season. Let's hope he gets off to a fast start in his new uniform.
