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.

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.
