2019 Free Agent Profiler: Grady Jarrett


Coming off of playing in 14 games as a starter for Dan Quinn's Atlanta Falcons, Jarrett set career highs in sacks (six) and quarterback hits (16) while recording 16 tackles. Jarrett's best game came in Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals when he recorded two sacks, seven tackles, and two quarterback hits.

Jarrett played sparingly in his rookie season, starting just two games while recording one sack in 2015. The defensive tackle saw regular playing time in 2016, recording three sacks and 48 tackles in 14 starts. However, Jarrett had the game of his life in Super Bowl LI against the New England Patriots, recording three sacks, helping Atlanta jump out to a 28-3 lead.

Jarrett has compiled 14 sacks, 40 quarterback hits, and 179 tackles throughout his young career. The agile defensive tackle prides his game on beating double teams against both the run and the pass, and has solidified himself as one of the top young defensive tackles in the NFL.
