No more concerns about Devonta Freeman‘s future in Atlanta.

Freeman and the Falcons have agreed to a five-year contract extension, the team announced.

Michael Silver of NFL Media reports Freeman will make a total of $41.25 million over five years, which, in addition to the $1.8 million he was scheduled to make this season, would be a total of six more years and $43 million.

Freeman is coming off the best of his three NFL seasons, with a career-high 1,079 rushing yards and a career-high 4.8 yards a carry. Now the Falcons expect the 25-year-old Freeman to play out his prime years in Atlanta.
