Falcons coach Dan Quinn was aware about comments by running back Devonta Freeman wanting a contract extension, but doesn’t believe they will be a distraction.

“That connection that Free has with his offensive teammates is so strong, I do realize that a clip came out about that,” Quinn said on Monday. “That’s a great topic for a week from today. Honestly, the team is so focused on this game, this matchup that it’s not a distraction.”
