Let’s start off with the obvious statement that we don’t want the Falcons to fail in their quest to extend Grady Jarrett. He’s a key piece of the defense now and in the future, and a failure to come to an agreement means a whole host of headaches after the upcoming 2019 season. The ideal outcome is a new deal between now and Monday’s
What I do think is important is that we all understand what those headaches might be. The Falcons have until 4 p.m. on Monday, July 15 to actually come to an agreement with Jarrett, or he’ll be playing out the season on his franchise tag.
