Falcons' Vic Beasley: Under contract through 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons announced Wednesday that they have exercised their fifth-year option on Beasley, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Beasley, a 2015 first-round pick, is set to make $14.2 million in the final year of his deal in 2019. The Falcons were always expected to pick up Beasley's option after general manager Thomas Dimitroff confirmed as much in late February, but it took nearly two months before the team made the transaction official. After leading the league with 15.5 sacks in 2016, Beasley saw his total drop to five in 14 games in 2017, prompting the Falcons to move him from outside linebacker to defensive end this offseason.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Not participating in start of voluntary workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is not partaking in the first week of Atlanta's voluntary offseason program while he attends the grand opening of his car dealership in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Jones missed the entirety of the team's 2017 offseason program due to foot surgery, so head coach Dan Quinn's announcement in March indicating that Jones would participate in this year's workouts was news well-received by every tier of the Falcons' organization. Quinn reported that there is no cause for concern regarding Jones being absent in the early going. "It's not mandatory," Quinn said this week from the team facility, "but we knew (he wasn't) going to be here." Jones' prompt return to workouts is expected, as he aims to continue building rapport with Matt Ryan and the rest of the receiving corps.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith signed with the Falcons on Tuesday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Smith has spent the majority of his NFL career on practice squads, logging stints with the Dolphins, 49ers and Seahawks since 2014. He was activated by the Seahawks for the second half of last season, as he recorded nine tackles (six solo) in eight contests. He'll now compete for a spot on the Falcons' 53-man roster this offseason.
