The Atlanta Falcons' running back corps was one of a few positions to undergo sweeping changes in the offseason. Former Carolina Panthers rival Mike Davis is now slotted in at RB1, but depth behind him is questionable with Qadree Ollison, Javian Hawkins and gadget weapon Cordarrelle Patterson.

The Falcons' latest free-agent signing may indicate they're looking to stir up some competition in the backfield.

D'Onta Foreman Falcons

Atlanta has signed former third-round pick D'Onta Foreman, adding another RB to the mix after the first week of training camp.

Foreman got off to a promising start as a rookie with the Houston Texans, recording 410 yards from scrimmage and 2 rushing TDs in 2017. His season was limited to just 10 games, however, due to a torn Achilles.

He was then sidelined for the majority of 2018 and didn't play at all in 2019. Foreman finally made his return in 2020 with the Tennessee Titans, recording 100 yards from scrimmage and a receiving TD in six games.

Foreman could have potential waiting to be tapped at just 25 years old. He provides the team with an intriguing option in the backfield that could make a push for the backup role with a strong preseason.
