2022 is Jarrert's last season under contract - releasing him is out of the question.I wonder if the Cowboys is hoping that Brady Jarrett gets released or traded. There is no guaranteed money left for the Falcons to pay him and the cap hit is 16 mil.
An extension is an option - but given the current state of the team, the DT might want out of Atlanta for greener pastures (contender & \ or lucrative 2nd contract) and just play out the season.
That leaves a trade being the optimum scenario for all parties involved-
1) Falcons get draft capital (2nd ) instead of nothing
2) Jarrett get his payday + better team to play for
3) NFL teams vying for his services can negotiate an extension as part of the deal
Are the Cowboys willing to call the Falcons to obtain a still very good player to upgrade their DLine?
