FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons have picked up right guard Chris Lindstrom’s $13.2 million fifth-year option while declining the option on right tackle Kaleb McGary.

The Falcons also announced a $51 million, three-year contract extension with defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, a two-time Pro Bowl selection. The decision on the Falcons’ two 2019 first-round draft picks were no surprise. Lindstrom, the No. 14 overall pick from Boston College, has developed into a strength of the Falcons’ offensive line. He did not allow a sack while starting all 17 games last season.

McGary, the No. 31 pick from Washington, gave up nine sacks. He will be a free agent after the 2022 season.
