The Falcons want to reduce Devonta Freeman's workload, and want Freeman and Tevin Coleman "competing."
Freeman touched the ball 337 times last season, and seemed to run out of gas down the stretch. "It’s about growth," RBs coach Bobby Turner said. "Free had a good year, but I’m expecting even a better year. ... It can be even better with less carries or less catches because I’d obviously like to get Tevin more involved and that also keeps Free fresher." Coleman was one of the league's better change-of-pace backs last season, and was ticketed for a bigger role before a rib injury sidelined him as Freeman exploded. "We want them competing," Turner said. "They are very similar. ... When it comes down to it, the one difference is the flat out long speed of Tevin Coleman." Freeman should still be drafted as a low-end RB1, but has no shot at matching last year's RB1 overall finish. Jul 11 - 2:07 PM
