Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Next man up for contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons' attention will shift to getting new deals done for Jarrett and offensive tackle Jake Matthews now that Matt Ryan has agreed to a five-year extension with the team, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports .

Jarrett has provided Atlanta with an exponential return on investment since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 draft, developing into one of the premier run stoppers in the NFL. The 25-year-old Clemson alum paced all interior defenders in tackles at or behind the line of scrimmage last season with 16, per Pro Football Focus. Even after adding promising defensive tackle prospect Deadrin Senat in the third round of April's draft, defensive tackle remains one of the thinnest position groups on the roster, hence the team's urgency to lock up a proven commodity in Jarrett.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Tallies four sacks in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett compiled 55 tackles and four sacks over 16 games for the Falcons in 2017.

Jarrett took a step forward in his third season, ultimately finishing the year as Pro Football Focus' fourth-best defensive tackle against the run and ninth-highest-graded at his position overall. However, he still wasn't worth much as an IDP asset given his modest statistical production. While he remains under contract with Atlanta for another season, Jarrett is only worth a look in deep fantasy formats in advance of 2018 drafts.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Jarrett was limited in practice Wednesday, so his full participation Thursday is a step in the right direction. Barring a major setback, the defensive tackle seems likely to play against the Panthers this week. Jarrett is coming off a seven-tackle, one-sack performance against the Jets in Week 8.
