The Atlanta Falcons have signed fourth-round running back Devonta Freeman to a four-year contract.

Freeman is a former Flordia State standout who became the first Florida State running back since Warrick Dunn to rush for over 1,000 yards last season.

He finished with 1,016 yards on 173 carries last season.

He led the team in rushing during both his freshman and junior campaigns, becoming the 15th player since 1947 to lead the Seminoles in multiple seasons. His 30 rushing touchdowns are tied for third in school history.
