Grady Jarrett Signs $15.2M Franchise Tag With Falcons

Apr 23, 2019 8:29 AM

The Atlanta Falcons have announced that Grady Jarrett has signed his $15.2 million franchise tag tender.

The Falcons have until July 15 to sign Jarrett to a multi-year contract.

"As we have said since the end of the season, getting a deal done with Grady is our priority," Thomas Dimitroff said last month. "Applying the franchise tag to him does not change that in any way. Our aim is for Grady to be an integral part of our plan for many years to come and this allows us to extend our negotiating window."

The Falcons placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jarrett in March, just a few days before the 2015 fifth-round pick would have hit free agency.

Apr 16, 2019 7:03 AM

Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a four-year, $140 million contract extension that makes him the highest-paid player in the NFL.

Wilson will also receive a $65 million signing bonus.

Wilson is contractually tied to the Seahawks through the 2023 season.

Wilson's annual average of $35 million per season eclipses Aaron Rodgers' extension signed last year. Rodgers earns $33.5 million per season and had a $57.5 million signing bonus.

Wilson's deal also includes a no trade clause. 

"Hey Seattle, we got a deal," a sleepy-sounding Wilson says while lying in bed next to his wife Ciara. "Go Hawks. But I'ma see ya'll in the morning. Time for ya'll to go to bed."
