The Atlanta Falcons are bringing free agent running back D’Onta Foreman into their camp this week giving the free agent a try out of sorts. Foreman in Atlanta would be a bad move despite the team needing depth.
D’Onta Foreman and the Atlanta Falcons are an interesting pairing and speak to the team’s need to add depth at the position.
Foreman will be brought into Falcons’ camp this week and given a chance to prove he deserves to be signed despite the lack of production in his career.
Not a solid move for the Atlanta Falcons that need backfield depth
In his three-year career, Foreman has only played in seventeen games and most of those came during his rookie year. He has been an inconsequential player since and is unlikely to make an impact in Atlanta.
He spent his first two seasons in Houston before finding another role two years later with the Titans.
He has managed only 421-rushing yards in his career 327- of those yards came four years ago in his rookie season. Hardly encouraging when you look at the teams he has been a member of.
Both the Texans and Titans give their running backs plenty of opportunities and neither team saw Foreman as an impact player.
While a tryout isn’t a bad idea considering the Falcons need at the position signing Foreman would be a mistake. Going with any player currently on the roster would be as productive as adding Foreman to the mix.
Foreman is only twenty-five but plays a position that rarely improves or gets better with age. Atlanta would be far better taking a chance on a veteran like Frank Gore or Adrian Peterson who would provide veteran leadership and production and seemingly defy that rule.
Currently, Atlanta has Mike Davis as their starter with Qadree Ollison listed as the backup. Though this position is expected to be up for contention throughout camp and the pre-season. A position while an area of need simply doesn’t need free agent D’Onte Foreman.
