    News

    Jarrett is signing a four-year, $68 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Impact

    Jarrett and the Falcons appear to have reached an agreement just an hour or two before Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline for franchise-tagged players. The 26-year-old defensive tackle averaged 51.7 tackles (27.3 solo) and 4.3 sacks over the past three seasons, including a career-high six sacks in 2018. The $17 million average annual value on his contract ranks third among defensive tackles, behind the Rams' Aaron Donald and the Eagles' Fletcher Cox.

    News

    Jarrett will play the 2019 season under the $15.2 million franchise if he and the Falcons are unable to agree on a contract extension by Monady, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Impact

    Arguably the Falcons' top defensive player last season, Jarrett collected six sacks, 16 quarterback hits, eight tackles for loss and three forced fumbles for an injury-plagued unit. General manager Thomas Dimitroff has been adamant that the team wants Jarrett to be a cornerstone of the defense for years to come, so there should be plenty of motivation for the organization and the defensive tackle to work out a long-term deal.
