Free Agent RB Devonta Freeman reportedly turned down an offer from the Seattle Seahawks, and that led to a report that he could be faced with sitting out the entire season.

There was also a report that Freeman would consider retirement which led to a response in a now-deleted tweet: "I got 10 more years in me."

Hosts John Fricke and Hugh Douglas of The Morning Show on WZGC in Atlanta chatted about Freeman turning down the Seahawks, and what's next for him.

"Nobody can tell you what you're worth. He feels strongly about the position that he's in," said Hugh. "It was a pretty good deal for a running back of his caliber, 28 years old, injuries that he's had, might be a little tough."

Fricke doesn't think he will sit out the entire season, but does wonder if he may not find a team until after the season begins.

"He may be one of these people who waits for somebody to get injured. Devonta's going to end up playing somewhere, he's still a valuable guy."

In addition to the Seahawks, the Jets and Eagles were also reportedly interested in Freeman.
