Grady Jarrett should be the first player the Jets sign to open free agency

Grady Jarrett should be the first player the Jets sign to open free agency

The three tech is needed in Greg Williams system Grady Jarrett 6’ 1” 295 lbs Defensive Tackle #97 Atlanta Falcons When the players on the free agent list first came out I was stunned to see the name Grady Jarrett as one of the players. Jarrett is one of the best 3-techs in all of football and he is just now entering his prime. I found out the reason he was on the list is he wants to be paid like one of the best players at his position and why not? The Falcons have a little over $26 million in cap space so they could get the job done but they have a number of players coming up for...

Where will all of the Falcons’ free agents land this offseason?

One month until free agency! There’s exactly one month until the new league year begins in the NFL. On March 13th at 4pm ET, select players from all 32 teams will officially become free agents. Today, I’ll be discussing the 18 Atlanta Falcons players expected to become free agents, and predict where I think they’ll end up this offseason. Grady Jarrett, DT One of the bright spots of 2018 was the continued emergence of defensive tackle Grady Jarrett. Even though he missed two games due to injury, overall Grady had one of his better seasons. He finished the year with a...

Grady Jarrett Must Be the Offseason Priority

  179 tackles and 14 sacks in just four seasons???  For a defensive tackle drafted in the 5th round??? Grady Jarrett has exceeded all expectations for the Falcons since he was drafted from Clemson in 2015, and has arguably been more productive than their first round pick that year, Vic Beasley.

What other cuts may be coming for the Falcons?

What other cuts may be coming for the Falcons?

Who’s next on the chopping block? The Falcons had a busy week, clearing cap space by releasing Robert Alford, Brooks Reed, and declining Matt Bryant’s team option, making him a free agent. It was especially difficult to see Bryant go. He’s been so clutch for this team for so long. Alford took a big step back last year, but he was stellar in 2016 and 2017. Reed has been a valuable role player over his time in Atlanta. But all of the cuts make sense in terms of cap savings and performance. With some big deals looming for Julio Jones and Grady Jarrett, and plenty of needs to address on...

Looking ahead to Grady Jarrett’s new contract, by the numbers

Looking ahead to Grady Jarrett’s new contract, by the numbers

The gifted defensive tackle is going to be paid like one of the league’s elites at his position. This offseason, Atlanta’s #1 priority is to get a new contract for Grady Jarrett. It won’t be cheap and it likely won’t be easy, but Jarrett has been very good since he arrived in Atlanta and capped off a career-best season that will ensure he gets paid. He’ll only be 26 years old in 2019 and the Falcons are dependent on him as they re-build a largely disappointing defensive line, so there’s no way they can afford to let him get away. The problem for the Falcons and Jarrett is how...

Conversations with Falcons’ Dan Quinn, Grady Jarrett, and Ben Garland on the NFL Honors red carpet

The Falcoholic spoke to Atlanta’s Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee, Jarrett, and Garland, who won the Salute to Service award. The Falcons are well represented at this year’s NFL Honors. We spoke with Salute to Service award winner Ben Garland, Walter Payton Man of the Year finalist Grady Jarrett, and head coach Dan Quinn on the red carpet about the event and the awards. Garland, an Air Force Academy graduate and a captain in the Air National Guard, was honored with the eighth-annual Salute to Service Award presented by USAA. Garland said that aside from the great honor of...

Falcons’ quest: Sign Jarrett and Jones and then take care of rest

Grady Jarrett, Julio Jones remain top offseason priorities for the Falcons

In other news, water is wet. Sometimes you know a thing but you still want to hear it, and I can’t get enough of hearing that the Falcons will be keeping Grady Jarrett and Julio Jones around for as long as possible. Thankfully, Thomas Dimitroff reiterated that again today. Thomas Dimitroff reiterates the offseason priorities — work on Grady Jarrett’s deal and then extend Julio Jones.— Jason Butt (@JasonHButt) January 31, 2019 I’ll be blunt: If the team botches these situations, it’s going to cast a pall over their offseason no matter what they do. Jarrett is still weirdly...

Packers free agency: Grady Jarrett would be great addition to defense

If Grady Jarrett is available when free agency begins in March, the Green Bay Packers should try to sign him. It’s January. There’s a long way to go before free agency kicks off on March 13. It’s hard to imagine the Atlanta Falcons not re-signing Grady Jarrett before then. But if, somehow, he becomes a […] Packers free agency: Grady Jarrett would be great addition to defense - Lombardi Ave - Lombardi Ave - A Green Bay Packers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

An early look at the free agency decisions ahead for the NFC South

An early look at the free agency decisions ahead for the NFC South

The Falcons aren’t alone in having some big decisions to make with their dollars. The season’s over and all that remains is to watch, apprehensively, as the Saints try to keep moving forward. It’s fair to wonder what the division might look like in 2019, though, and that’s what we’ll take an extremely early look at today. We’ll do this again closer to the draft and after the draft, as well, so consider this a preliminary look at who these teams might lose, their cap space, and what that might mean.

Bright spots in a dim year: Falcons LB Foyesade Oluokun was a 6th-round steal

Bright spots in a dim year: Falcons LB Foyesade Oluokun was a 6th-round steal

Oluokun was an unexpected steady hand in the aftermath of Deion Jones’s injury. Over the next week or so, we’ll look at the bright spots on this roster we didn’t have the time or energy to really praise during the regular season. After that, we’ll take a closer look at some of the players who didn’t meet our expectations. Ricardo Allen. Grady Jarrett. Damontae Kazee. The Atlanta Falcons have done yeoman’s work mining gems in the late rounds of the NFL Draft, and the latest addition to their growing group of steals is Foyesade Oluokun, the rookie linebacker out of Yale who was a...

How the Falcons defensive line could and should shake out in 2019

How the Falcons defensive line could and should shake out in 2019

The Falcons have a chance to add an elite player next to Grady Jarrett and Takkarist McKinley, and they should do it. The trenches were trouble for the Falcons in 2018, and in the case of the defensive line, that was a massive disappointment. The Falcons only had one significant injury on the defensive line, a multi-week ailment for Grady Jarrett, and were otherwise healthy minus Derrick Shelby. For all that, this team got very little production out of their front four, putting additional strain on a depleted secondary and leading to major questions about Vic Beasley’s future with the...

The Falcoholic’s 2018 Falcons positional review: Defensive line

The Falcoholic’s 2018 Falcons positional review: Defensive line

How did the defensive line fare this season? As our positional review keeps moving along the merry lane, we’ve come to a bit of an awkward impasse with the roster. The Falcons’ defensive line is one of the more maligned groups of the season, a group that just didn’t have enough firepower to begin with and didn’t use what they had very well. We saw more Grady Jarrett dominance, a hot start for Takk McKinley, Jack Crawford and Deadrin Senat emerging, the curious case of Vic Beasley and a late-season surge for Bruce Irvin this year, which feels more electric in writing than it looked...
