Falcons training camp battles: The fourth DT spot

Falcons training camp battles: The fourth DT spot

Newcomer Tyeler Davison has Michael Bennett, Justin Zimmer and Ra’Shede Hageman looking over his shoulder. Heading into the 2019 offseason many people, including myself, saw the Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle position as the biggest need. Even with Grady Jarrett and the great season Jack Crawford had in 2018, the trench position needed a little more added to it. In free agency, the team added Tyeler Davison who spent four seasons with the New Orleans Saints and brought back Ra’Shede Hageman, who was released by the team in 2017 following a domestic-violence incident. Also returning...

Falcons DT Grady Jarrett says he’s still ‘hungry’ even after signing big contract

In the final hours of the deadline for franchise-tagged players to sign long-term contracts with their teams, Grady Jarrett agreed to a four-year, $68 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons.

Report: Deion Jones could sign contract extension today

Report: Deion Jones could sign contract extension today

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ Per the AJC, Thomas Dimitroff is moving fast with locking up young defenders. Seemingly only minutes after Grady Jarrett signed a four-year, $68 million deal to remain with the Falcons, it was reported the team was preparing to negotiate with star linebacker Deion Jones. Extensions with Julio Jones and Jarrett have been in process for over a year, so it was fair to think today’s meeting with agent Drew Rosenhaus was the first step in a long process. Per D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, it’s the last step in a long process. Deion...

Seahawks DT Jarran Reed owes a thank you to Grady Jarrett of the Falcons

With the days until the Seattle Seahawks open training camp having reached single digits, the overwhelming majority of the offseason is in the books. Long gone are free agency, the draft and the offseason workout program. As such, this time of year there are basically three types of news that can come out regarding a player: a suspension, a contract extension or reports of some sort of offseason injury. Many Seahawks fans are hoping for one of these types of reports, an announcement of a contract extension, for one of a handful of players who are extension eligible. At the top of that list...

Analysis of Grady Jarrett’s new contract and how it impacts the team this year and beyond

It was a good deal for Jarrett, but also gives Atlanta room to make moves now. The Falcons and Grady Jarrett took their contract negotiation down to the wire, getting it done with just a few minutes left on the clock. The deal gives a great player more money and a guarantee beyond this season while the team locks up one of its stars for the next several years. The rumors that Grady wanted Aaron Donald money now appear to be false, as Jarrett’s deal puts him behind both Donald and Fletcher Cox in money per season. Let’s take a look at some of the specifics of the deal and how this...

What Grady Jarrett’s new contract means for the Falcons

What Grady Jarrett’s new contract means for the Falcons

The team made the right move and took care of one of their stars, even if it came down to the wire. Over the weekend, I looked at what the potential costs of failing to reach a long-term agreement with Grady Jarrett would be for the Falcons. They were, to put it mildly, not pretty. The only move the Falcons could make that wouldn’t leave them in an even worse spot a year from now or potentially even letting Jarrett walk—a borderline catastrophe for a team that hasn’t exactly sprouted stud defensive linemen left and right—was the one they ultimately made. It came down to the wire,...
