Giants Designate RB Devonta Freeman To Return From IR


The New York Giants announced Friday that they’ve designated RB Devonta Freeman to return from injured reserve. 


This opens a three-week window of time for the Giants to activate him from injured reserve and add him to their 53-man roster.

New York just activated Freeman from the COVID-19 list on Thursday. 

Freeman, 28, is a former fourth-round pick of the Falcons back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.7 million contract when he and the Falcons agreed to a five-year, $41.25 million extension that included $22 million guaranteed.

Freeman was set to make base salaries of $6.5 million and $6.3 million over the next two years of the agreement when the Falcons released him this offseason. The Giants later signed him to a one-year deal worth up to $3 million in September. 

In 2020, Freeman has appeared in five games and rushed for 172 yards on 54 carries (3.2 YPC) to go along with seven receptions for 58 yards receiving and one touchdown.
