This comes a few months after Freeman turned down a contract from the Seahawks, who later signed Carlos Hyde.

Silver says the Jets, Eagles and Jaguars are among the teams that have previously expressed interest in Freeman.

Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians said later month that they would be interested in signing Freeman if he lowered his asking price. 

Freeman tweeted a day later that “a number of teams are interested” in him, but he isn’t looking to negotiate through the media.

The Seahawks were reportedly offering Freeman a one-year contract worth up to $4 million with a base value of less than $3 million. Freeman declined Seattle’s offer and the Seahawks opted to give the deal to Hyde instead. 

Freeman has left open the possibility of sitting out the 2020 season if his options don’t improve, but refuted rumors of retirement

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 stood 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. 

In 2019, Freeman appeared in 14 games and rushed for 656 yards on 184 carries (3.6 YPC) and two touchdowns to go along with 59 receptions for 410 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
