The Atlanta Falcons would rather avoid a situation similar to Joe Flacco in Baltimore, with QB Matt Ryan playing out his final contract year without a deal.
Both sides, understandably want an extension done, but with the 2013 NFL Draft only mere days away, it's time to hit the pause buttons on talks, and focus on bettering the team through the draft.
"The situation is, as we've mentioned, both parties, we're in a very comfortable situation," Falcons GM Tom Dimitroff said, via The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "We are focused on the draft again. After the draft we'll continue to discuss (Ryan's contract) and I'm sure both parties, Matt and the Falcons are feeling good about making sure that this gets done at the right time."
After the draft, expect things to heat up again, with reports that Ryan is due a pretty sweet deal. The team has been dumping salary in anticipation, and the deal will reportedly surpass Flacco's deal of $120.6 million. "There is no time frame on it right now and I don't want to keep you hanging on it, but I feel confident things are going to be taken care of when the time is proper," Dimitroff said.

With the draft being just around the corner, I decided instead of a full defensive end preview, I will incorporate a mock draft for defensive ends. The way this works is that for each draft pick I give a scenario where Atlanta would take a defensive end. Below is who I believe Atlanta will draft next week if they opt to take a defensive end in the first few rounds. There is a trade...
I thought it was crazy, but I think a lot of things are crazy. Could the Falcons really be considering another Julio Jones type trade only one draft removed from the actual Julio Jones trade. When Peter King first reported it my line of thinking was along the lines of, "Well, what he means is that they've probably have had some internal discussions about trading. I seriously...
Do you like luxury?
Let's face it - WR isn't going to be a priority in this draft for the Falcons. They have 2 that are still at the top of their game, along with a nice slot option in Harry Douglas, a productive scatback in 'quizz,and...oh yeah...the greatest pass catching TE ever!
With that - my job is pretty easy here, as I can elminate...
