Could Grady Jarrett’s new contract affect Chris Jones’ contract negotiations?

On Monday, NFL teams faced a deadline to sign players to whom they had applied the franchise tag. Going into the weekend, just three such players remained unsigned: San Francisco 49ers placekicker Robbie Gould, Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, and Houston Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney.

But early Monday morning, there was news that the 49ers and Gould had finalized a two-year, fully-guaranteed $10.5 million extension that could end up being a four-year deal worth $19 million. Then shortly before the signing deadline, the Falcons signed Jarrett to a four-year deal worth $68 million.
