The Atlanta Falcons were always going to get to this moment. Grady would have been playing on a $15 million tag but he has been an anchor on the Falcons under performing defensive line for the past few seasons.
Another deadline deal: Falcons and DT Grady Jarrett reached agreement on a four-year, $68 million deal, sources tell ESPN. Falcons beat deadline and lock up their DT.
Not only has Jarrett has outperformed his fifth round draft position, he’s been positive off the field, is a hometown kid having went to Rockdale High School, just a 30 or so minute drive outside of Atlanta, and his dad is a Falcons legend, Jessie Tuggle.
