Per NFLNetwork
Without a number for the guaranteed cash...

...the term and total value aren't very meaningful.

Freeman is an explosive playmaker. As long as he remains healthy and productive, he should get paid.
$22M Guaranteed

22 mil guaranteed for Freeman.

Question would Perkins be considered a Freeman type player? Do they have similar skill sets?

Freeman a gamebreaker much more explosive...what Reese was looking for in David Wilson.

And he's been productive. last 2 seasons he's like 1000-1100 rushing yards plus 60 catches a year.
Hate to turn this to FF

but in mock 14-team drafts, anytime I get slotted b/w 9-14, I'm grabbing him every time. He's going to get a ton of work this year.

Coleman is the more "explosive" of the two backs, IMO. Freeman has become a really good player, though. He's an extremely tough runner for a kid his size.
Perkins / Freeman

similar 40 time (4.5)
Perkins > broad jump
Perkins slightly higher vert

similar size ... Freeman's a better receiver at the moment, but I do see him potentially having a similar breakout

Excellent Perkins article - ( New Window )
So what does this mean for the Bell contract?

he deserves to be the highest paid RB ever .. his per game production is just ridiculous: 129 scrimmage yards per game.

* although off-field/injury concerns may "ding" the overall value some

Freeman wasn't a first round pick. No one knew that Freeman would be this good. The guy was picked #103 in the draft.
