Devonta Freeman wants Super Bowl LI to be his Valentine

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman hopes to have a late Valentine's Day date -- with the Super Bowl.

Just two days before Valentine's Day, a tweet showed up on Freeman's Twitter account expressing his desire to make next year's Super Bowl his Valentine. Freeman said Friday he didn't actually come up with the design, but he did tweet out the image for his fans to see.

Here it is:

Of course, Freeman and the Falcons have a lot of ground to cover before they start talking Super Bowl. They haven't made the playoffs the past three seasons and have holes to fill on both offense and defense.

Team owner Arthur Blank said Matt Ryan is the right quarterback to lead the Falcons to the Super Bowl. Ryan has a couple of good sidekicks in Pro Bowler Julio Jones and Freeman, who rushed for more than 1,000 yards and tied for the NFL lead with 14 touchdowns this past season.
