Saints add veteran Freeman to running back corps

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Former Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants running back Devonta Freeman has joined the New Orleans Saints.

Freeman, whose signing was announced Sunday by Saints general manager Mickey Loomis, has played eight NFL seasons since Atlanta selected him in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft out of Florida State.

Freeman played in five games for New York last season, rushing 54 times for 172 yards and one touchdown and catching seven passes for 58 yards.
