  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Set to be more versatile in 2022

    Jarrett said Wednesday that he'll play all over the defensive line in 2022, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Jarrett said he's most comfortable at three-technique and nose tackle, but he's gaining experience at pretty much every alignment during training camp. The 2015 fifth-round pick signed a three-year, $51 million extension this offseason, and his increased versatility appears to be a key factor for the Falcons' new defensive coordinator, Dean Pees. Jarrett's new role should bode well for his overall fantasy production in 2022 after he tied his career low with one sack last year.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Secures extension

    Jarrett and the Falcons came to terms Tuesday on a three-year extension worth up to $51 million, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The deal includes $34.5 million fully guaranteed, according to Rapoport. The deal lowers Jarrett's cap figure for 2022 while simultaneously giving the star defensive lineman some added financial security. Though the one sack he recorded in 17 games in 2021 matched his lowest total since his rookie season in 2015, Jarrett remained effective as a run stopper with 59 tackles (38 solo).

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Final year with Falcons on deck?

    Jarrett (groin) is unlikely to remain in Atlanta after the 2021 season, Deen Worley of USA Today reports. Jarrett technically is under contract with the Falcons through 2022, but after the 2021 season his contract includes a potential out with just $7.3 million in dead money. The soon-to-be 28-year-old has been a rare defensive standout for Atlanta, with 17.5 sacks over the last three seasons. A strong 2021 campaign could even boost his potential trade value.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Day officially done

    Jarrett (groin) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. With Atlanta having no postseason aspirations left to play for, there's little reason to rush back the two-time Pro Bowler and defensive cornerstone. Jarrett closes out his 2020 campaign with a career-high 20 QB hits, though his four sacks represent a step down from his totals of six and 7.5 between 2018 and 2019, respectively. The 27-year-old also notched eight-plus tackles for loss in a fourth consecutive campaign.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Cleared despite limited practices

    Jarrett (groin) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. Jarrett was limited in all three of Atlanta's practice sessions this week but still managed to avoid being listed on the team's final injury report. He started the season hot with 2.5 sacks through three weeks, but the defensive lineman has added only half a sack to his ledger since then.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Limited showing Wednesday

    Jarrett (groin) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports. Jarrett is back on the injury report again with the groin injury that has caused him to manage his practice reps this season. The Clemson product has yet to miss time this season, playing 79 percent of defensive snaps in last week's loss to New Orleans. If he continues to practice in some fashion this week he'll likely be out there for Week 14 against the Chargers.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Practices in limited fashion

    Jarrett (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. Jarrett played through a hip injury over the last two games, and now he's bothered by a back issue. This is worth monitoring as the week goes on, as Jarrett consistently leads the Falcons' defensive line in snaps, and he's recorded 21 tackles and 2.5 sacks through five contests.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Ready to rock

    Jarrett (hip) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Jarrett was limited in Friday's practice, but he handled 78 percent of defensive snaps Week 4 while playing through the lingering hip injury, so it doesn't look as though his workload is in much danger of diminishing versus Carolina. As the Falcons eye their first win of the season, Jarrett will be counted on to pressure Teddy Bridgewater and slow down Mike Davis.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Limited in Wednesday's session

    Jarrett (hip) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. Jarrett hasn't missed a game since 2018, and the defensive tackle was able to suit up in Week 4 after injuring his hip in Week 3. While he may not upgrade to a full practice at any point, Jarrett's likely to tough it out come Sunday's game against the Panthers.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Ready for MNF

    Jarrett (hip) will play in Monday's game versus the Packers. Jarrett will avoid missing his first game since the 2018 season. The Clemson product is off to a hot start this year with 14 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a fumble recovery through three games, and he'll be tasked with slowing down running back Aaron Jones and pressuring Aaron Rodgers in Week 4.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Back at practice Friday

    Jarrett (hip) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Jarrett suffered this injury in Week 3's loss to the Bears and was unable to practice Thursday, but he participated in Friday's session. It's a positive sign for his chances of playing Monday versus the Packers, but if he can't shake off the injury in time, John Cominsky will likely take over as a starting defensive tackle.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Excited to team up with Fowler

    Jarrett said Monday that it has been "awesome" to be a teammate of Dante Fowler thus far, and that he is "ready to go wreck it up with him," William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. An argument can be made that Fowler is as talented a pass rusher as Jarrett has teamed up with across six NFL seasons, as Fowler has averaged eight sacks per 16 games since the start of 2017. Over that same span, Fowler's production compares favorably to the averages of both Takkarist McKinley (5.9 sacks per 16 games) and Vic Beasley (six sacks per 16 games), providing optimism that Atlanta's pass rush may rise from a 30th place finish in team sacks. Jarrett himself is coming off a career-high 7.5-sack season and has potential to improve upon that number with Fowler demanding attention from opposing offensive lines.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Tallies another sack in Week 16 win

    Jarrett accounted for three tackles and one sack during Sunday's 24-12 win against the Jaguars. The ascending defensive star reached the six-sack mark for a second consecutive campaign, and simultaneously achieved 11-plus tackles for loss for the second time over the past three years. In addition to his run-stuffing prowess, Jarrett has been an exceptionally valuable interior lineman given his ability to disrupt the passer. Jarrett has 44 QB hits in 45 regular-season games since the start of 2017, and he has finally been rewarded with his first career Pro-Bowl nod. Jarrett looks to get after Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston in Week 17, a quarterback who has been sacked 46 times while committing an astronomical 33 giveaways on the year.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Racks up six tackles

    Jarrett collected six tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss, during Sunday's 29-22 win against the 49ers. The Pro-Bowl buzz continues to build around Jarrett, as the 2015 fifth-round draft choice now has 5.5-plus sacks in consecutive seasons, as well as a career-high 65 tackles with two games remaining in the 2019 campaign. Jarrett has tackles for loss in back-to-back outings, but he carries a five-game sack drought heading into a Week 16 matchup against a Jacksonville offensive line that ranks among the bottom half of the league with 36 sacks allowed.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Sack machine in Week 10 win

    Jarrett amassed 2.5 sacks during Sunday's 26-9 win against New Orleans. The 26-year-old interior lineman spearheaded a breakout Week 10 for the Falcons' pass rush, as Atlanta generated six sacks on Saints quarterback Drew Brees after managing just seven sacks through the first eight outings of the year. In addition to his typical run-stuffing prowess, Jarrett has been emerging as a pocket disrupter of late, picking up QB hits in each of his past three appearances as well as 3.5 combined sacks over Atlanta's two most recent games against Seattle and New Orleans. Week 11 presents an opportunity for Jarrett to get after young Panthers signal-caller Kyle Allen, who has five lost fumbles already on the season.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Superb performance

    Jarrett made eight tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Seahawks. The tackle tally was a single-game career high, and Jarrett now has 44 tackles and three sacks through eight games. It appears Jarrett will achieve multiple career bests this year, as the fifth-year pro is set up well to shatter his previous high of 55 stops, and he's on pace to match last year's six-sack total.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Picks up injury

    Jarrett (abdomen) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Jarrett logged his lowest snap share (61 percent) of the season in Week 7 against the Rams, so perhaps he suffered this injury at some point during the loss. The fifth-year pro's absence could leave a major void on the Falcons' interior defensive line, which will be a problem against the Seahawks' run-heavy offense.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Injury not serious

    Coach Dan Quinn said Monday that he expects to have Jarrett (toe) available for practice near the end of the week, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports. Jarrett suffered a toe injury during Sunday's loss to the Colts. While it appears that the starting defensive tackle may not participate in practice to begin the week, it doesn't seem that Jarrett is nursing a long-term injury. It remains to be seen whether Jarrett will manage to suit up Week 4 versus the Titans.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Hurts toe Sunday

    Jarrett (toe) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Colts, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports. The injuries are stacking up on the Falcons' defense, as Takkarist McKinley (knee) and Keanu Neal (Achilles) have already left. Jarrett made one tackle for a loss before leaving this contest. Jack Crawford figures to take on Jarrett's workload for the time being.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Sacks in two straight games

    Jarrett accounted for five total tackles and one sack during Sunday's 24-20 win against the Eagles. Jarrett continues to generate pressure from the interior, now having accounted for a sack in each of his first two outings of 2019, after finishing out last season with a total of six. Having been rewarded with a four-year, $68 million contract over the summer, Jarrett now strives for his first Pro Bowl nod on behalf of a now-healthy and seemingly improved Falcons defense. It's encouraging to see that the front seven was more effective in containing the run in Week 2, limiting Philadelphia running backs to 2.6 yards per carry after giving up 5.3 yards per attempt to Vikings backs in Week 1.
