Ravens Signing RB Devonta Freeman To Practice Squad

Adam Schefter reports that the Ravens are signing veteran RB Devonta Freeman to their practice squad following the news that Gus Edwards could be out for the season with a torn ACL.

Schefter says that the idea is that Freeman will be promoted to Ravens’ active roster at some point in the near future. 

Freeman recently tried out for the Ravens along with Le’Veon Bell, so he was clearly on their radar as a potential addition. 

Freeman, 29, 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 last year. The Giants later signed him to a one-year deal worth up to $3 million in September only to release him. 

The Bills later signed Freeman to their practice squad. He signed with the Saints during training camp, but was released last week. 

In 2020, Freeman 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.
