ATLANTA - It's Falcons defensive lineman Grady Jarrett like you've never heard him before. "I think [people will] enjoy it," said Jarrett. "Authentic, fun talk.
Peter King discussed the Falcons' options with the No. pick in his Football Morning in America column and reported "owner Arthur Blank is fascinated by the quarterbacks atop the draft, thinking the franchise might not be in such an advantageous position to take one for years." However, King pointed out that "Blank will not force a decision" and instead will allow head coach Arthur Smith and general manager Terry Fontenot to make the ultimate call.
Whether it materializes on or before April 29 remains to be seen, but the Denver Broncos touched base with the Atlanta Falcons regarding the availability of the No. overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Woody Paige of DenverGazette.com reported Saturday. According to Paige, new Broncos general manager George Paton holds "Mile High regard" for two quarterbacks in particular: Ohio State's Justin Fields and North Dakota State's Trey Lance, both of whom he's watched up close and personal this offseason.
