One of, if not the biggest priorities for the Falcons this offseason will be to try and bring back defensive tackle Grady Jarrett.
He’s going to be a free agent in March, but the team is hoping they can get something done before that time.
Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff told the team’s official website the hope is to get Jarrett signed before March.
“We would like to have Grady back for many years to come,” Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff said.
“Not only on the field but what he does off the field for us, he’s very important. That has been our focus. We put it aside for a little bit through the season, of course, so he could focus on what he needed to focus on.
“Now, we’re back focusing on that as really our priority to see how this proceeds, and I’m confident with it.”
The Falcons spent a good deal of money on extensions for some key players as of late, including quarterback Matt Ryan, safety Ricardo Allen and left tackle Jake Matthews.
