  Falcons | Atlanta's Week 4 injury report    Fri Sep 27, 04:33 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Kenjon Barner (concussion, knee) was unable to practice all week but does not appear on the injury report for Week 4 versus the Tennessee Titans. DE Takkarist McKinley (knee), WR Calvin Ridley (hip), RB Ito Smith (concussion) and DT Grady Jarrett (toe) participated fully in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and were removed from the injury report. OG Jamon Brown (hand), P Matt Bosher (groin), LB De'Vondre Campbell (ribs) and OT Kaleb McGary (knee) were not assigned a practice designation Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Smith is likely to return this week, but the team could make Brian Hill active if they are worried about their running back depth. Seeing Ridley removed from the injury report is heartening after an injury slowed him down last year and took away his high weekly ceiling.

  Falcons | Grady Jarrett agrees to extension    Mon Jul 15, 02:49 PM

Atlanta Falcons DT Grady Jarrett reportedly reached an agreement on a four-year contract worth $68 million on Monday, July 15.

Footballguys view: Jarrett had been designated as the team's franchise player and they get the deal done before Monday's deadline. While he's not going to snare many sacks (although he did have a career high 6.0 sacks in 2018), Jarrett does create a lot of interior pressure. He's a disruptive player and a handful for opponents inside. Jarrett is a nasty player and fun to watch on Sundays.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, DT Grady Jarrett, LB Vic Beasley and LB Deion Jones reported to mandatory minicamp Monday, June 10, after they skipped voluntary organized team activities.

  Falcons | Grady Jarrett a priority    Mon Jan 28, 07:44 PM

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent DT Grady Jarrett will be a top priority for the team in terms of re-signing players this offseason, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff.

Footballguys view: Jarrett generates interior pressure as well as anyone this side of Aaron Donald and he should be getting a very lucrative contract. The Falcons have been getting his production on the cheap, so he might be more willing to test the market if they don't offer him something in line with the biggest contracts at defensive tackle before Donald broke the market last year.
