Finally, Atlanta Falcons Agrees To Extended the Contract of Her Two Key Defensive Members


Atlanta Falcons has finally agreed to extend the contract of a young defensive standout Deion Jones. This comes two days after meeting the deadline to agree to a long term extension of defensive lineman Grady Jarret.

According to ESPN’s Adams Schefter Deion agreed to a four year $57 million extension including $34 million guaranteed. He is also entitled to a signing bonus of $11 million. His rookie contract was to expire this season.

Jones was a second-round pick out of Louisiana State in 2016. Last season, Jones did not play to his level best after he broke his foot. He managed 53 tackles, six pass break-up, and two interceptions.

In 2017 he had a good record of 138 tackles in which 91 were solo tackles, ten pass break, and three interceptions. He was nominated to his first Pro Bowl in that season.

So far Atlanta has extended the contract of two of its vital defensive members. Is this a guarantee that they will be more offensive? It’s a matter of time, then will see the result.

Receiver Julio Jones also has told TMZ that he is going to succeed in a new contract pursuit. He indicated that Atlanta owner Arthur Blank assured him of it.
