If no contract is reached, Clowney and Jarrett could sign the franchise tender, which would technically make them one of the highest-paid players at their position in 2019.
While the Falcons and Grady Jarrett's representation were far apart regarding a contract extension for the majority of the offseason, the two sides reached an agreement Monday to keep the star defensive tackle in town for quite a while longer.
According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, $42.5 million is guaranteed.
If that is the case, the question then becomes whether either player will sign the tender and report for training camp, or holdout, as Le'Veon Bell did with the Steelers last season.
He was drafted in the fifth round out of Clemson in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Todd France, Jarrett's agent, told D. This new contract reflects that and is a fair value for both parties.
