Beat me to it @g-dawg, I'll delete mine but copy over this because it's important: I will say this, which I know will probably fall on def ears, Thomas Dimitroff is good at his job.  Very good. 

Adam Schefter   ✔@AdamSchefter     Now that the Falcons have reached agreement on a $68 million deal with Grady Jarrett, Atlanta is turning its attentio

I'm glad to see this.   if we get Debo locked down w/ Jarrett - the defensive corps is safe for the next 4-5 years.   No one else on the defense is untouchable - Falcon will look to be adding more fro

Don't think there's a max dude. We've seen 6, 10, 12 year deals.

An excerpt from a great article on the Salary-Cap as follows:

"So, what is the difference between a Signing Bonus, Option Bonus and a Roster Bonus?

In each case, the bonus is a payment to the player that is contingent on the player signing a new contract (Signing Bonus) or remaining with the team (Option Bonus or Roster Bonus).  For the player, it really isn’t that important from his perspective what type of bonus it is, because he’s getting paid the bonus, regardless of what it’s called.  From the perspective of the Salary Cap, the type of bonus is important because of the way that is counts against the Salary Cap.

Roster Bonuses count fully in the year in which they are paid.

Signing Bonuses and Option Bonuses are prorated over the length of the player’s contract (or the remaining years of the players contract, in the case of an Option Bonus), up to a CBA-mandated maximum of 5 years.

OK, so how then is a player’s contract evaluated for Salary Cap purposes?

By way of example, let’s say Player X signs a 5-year, $40M contract that contains a Signing bonus of $10M, an Option Bonus of $4M, payable in year 2 and a Roster Bonus of $1M also payable in year 2.  The contract includes base salaries (P5) of $1M, $3M, $6M, $7M and $8M over the course of the 5 years.

The Signing Bonus of $10M will be prorated over the 5 years of the contract and will count $2M against the Salary Cap in each year of the Contract.

The 2nd year Option Bonus will be prorated over the 4 remaining years of the contract and will count $1M in each of those years.

The 3rd year Roster Bonus will count 100% in the 2nd year, assuming the player is still on the team’s roster in year 2 (Roster Bonuses are most often payable if the player is on the team’s roster on the 5th day of the league year)."

That's not a contract max. That's a bonus max. So you can only get bonuses in the first 5 years.

You can have a 10 year contract but you only get bonuses for 5 of those years.

I'm gonna guess 5/72.5 (14.5 per). Could be wrong.

 

Little less than market value which appears to be 15 per. Injury plagued season year following Pro Bowl selection will hurt his value (is he the same player?) Right around the Kwon/Mosley range. Can't see the Falcons paying him more than 16mm with a 40% chance of reinjury in 2019, but very possible judging by Grady's contract (3rd highest DT contract). Polk and Dimitroff will ask themselves, can we risk paying him so much if he hurts himself and the team struggles again? They'll give him a rich amount regardless. Spotrac projects Bobby Wagner to make 14.2 per and is five years older than Deion. As far as 5 years, I can imagine the Falcons will want to lock up Deion longer than Grady to avoid a similar cap situation later on. Not to mention the fact that Deion is the centerpiece of our defense.

Deion is the most important player on defense. Even moreso than Grady. This dude controls the defense better than any player I've ever seen. I'd give em whatever he wants. He is the best player drafted since Matt Ryan and besides Ryan, might be the best player drafted in the past 30 years for real

Report: Deion Jones could get new deal on Wednesday

Josh Alper,ProFootball Talk on NBC Sports 4 hours ago
 

After the Falcons signed defensive tackle Grady Jarrett to a four-year extension on Monday, word was that linebacker Deion Jones was the next on the list of players in line for a new deal.

Jones’s agent Drew Rosenhaus is in Atlanta on Wednesday for meetings with the team about a new deal for the 2016 second-round pick. D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the meeting could result in an agreement on a new contract before the day is out.

Jones established himself as a key defensive piece for the Falcons shortly after joining the team and his importance was underscored by the defense’s struggles while Jones missed 10 games with a foot injury last year.

Should the linebacker’s deal get done, it may be time for the Falcons to turn to the other side of the ball. Wide receiver Julio Jones has been in the market for a new deal for some time, but said he would not be holding out of training camp in a bid to force the issue.
