Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett is still looking to sign a long-term contract with the team before training camp starts in July.

The fifth-year lineman signed a one-year, $15.2 million franchise tag tender at the end of April. The Falcons will have July 15th to sign him to a multi-year deal. 

"Grady Jarrett is one of the best defensive lineman in the NFL who never, for some reason, gets mentioned in that conversation nationally," NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah said.

Jeremiah said outside of Jarrett, the Falcons have a lot of questions marks on the defensive line.

"When I look at this Falcons team, it's really Grady Jarrett. You circle him and then there's just question marks because you don't know what you're going to get from (Vic) Beasley and you don't know exactly what you're going to get from (Takk) McKinley. One of those guys has to be a double-digit sack guy this year."
