Falcons agree to 4-year extension with Grady Jarrett

ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms with defensive tackle Grady Jarrett on a four-year extension before the NFL deadline for franchise-tagged players.

The Falcons had until 4 p.m. ET Monday to finalize a multi-year deal with Jarrett, and general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement that the Falcons made clear since last season ended that a new contract for Jarrett has been a priority.

Terms were not disclosed. NFL.com reported the deal is worth $68 million and makes Garrett the third highest-paid defensive tackle behind Aaron Donald of the Rams and Philadelphia's Fletcher Cox.
