Hopefully they can now stay at 14 and get the pieces they need. Unless the price of moving up drops

Good news. Now give the man the extension he deserves 

Extend him after the season.  What if he gets injured, regresses or some other unlikely event?  Save the extension and CAP savings for next offseason

The problem is that Grady is not asking for what he "deserves" but what he imagines he deserves.

It seems his asking price is so high (must think he is Aaron Donald) that the best thing is happening for the Falcons:

He plays this year at his best because he knows his future financial success is on the line if his performance dips

The Falcons basically are paying him what they would be paying him if he did sign a big contract (although larger salary cap hit this year)

He will probably test free agency next year and find out that his market value is not as big as he thinks it is

The Falcons will be in a great bargaining position if he does come back to them after not getting what he is currently asking

The Falcons have the opportunity to draft a replacement for him this year and have less need for him if he does find a better offer elsewhere

His best years are probably now and he will probably show decline in 3 or so years based on other DT's

Well thought out.

You get a big body next to him he might be unleashed for real. Saw what he did in the super bowl. I think he gets doubled a lot.

Who do you see as the eventual replacement? Saunders, Oliver, Wilkins, or someone else?

I suspect he’ll sign a long term deal prior to 7/15.

1) He forced the Falcons hand by taking up $15M in cap space...dollars that could have theoretically been used to acquire other talent.

2) With the FA window pretty much closed though, the ball is back in Grady’s court.  Play out a one-year deal with not much long term security while exposing yourself to subpar year/injury or come back to the bargaining table.

3) This feels like a good faith move leading to what I suspect will be a long term deal in the $19M AAV range with substantial guarantees.

I think he’ll sign because the Falcons generally value their players correctly commiserate with market dynamics and they’ve plainly stated how much they want him locked up long term.

But make no mistake...if he did make it to FA, he would not want for deep pocketed suitors.
