That rumor was quickly retracted but now it is popping up again.ESTShareTweetShareShareRumors continue that Grady Jarrett is looking for Aaron Donald moneyDale Zanine-USA TODAY SportsHow much money does Grady Jarrett want? We thought the smart money was on a Fletcher Cox deal. Cox signed a $102.6 million, six-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2016. While the total numbers may look surprising, there are a lot of “fluff” numbers after the first four years and $63.39 million. Regardless of how his deal shakes out, Jarrett should be looking a bit north of Cox’s $16 to $17 million average. Spotrac has Jarrett’s calculated market value at a reasonable $15.5 million per year, which feels far too optimistic given that it wouldn’t make him one of the couple of highest-paid players at his position. Which is why it was so surprising to see Dave Archer, who does work for the Falcons, say, and I quote, “Grady’s agent is asking for Aaron Donald money.” Archer said the two parties are not even in the same ballpark, which we can probably confirm as no deal has been worked out months later. Archer quickly issued a retraction regarding the contract negotiations.Some of us noticed the Falcons release video with Archer as a commenter in the days after he first mentioned Jarrett’s contract demands. It’s not crazy to think he was mistaken. It is also not crazy to think that he may have been privy to some information about negotiations at Flowery Branch that he shared on the radio and later had to walk back. Grady himself seemingly expressed frustration about the news shortly after the December article was posted with a Drake line. We can also confirm that he is, in fact Julio Jones Jersey Sale , not an editor at The Falcoholic. Additionally, we have no plans to sell Jarrett’s secrets for a Range Rover.Jeff Schultz of The Athletic also called the report inaccurate.The matter was put to bed. At least it was before ESPN’s Vaughn McClure heard the same rumor at the combine.If having to franchise Jarrett didn’t make you worried, two consistent rumors regarding his contract demands should. Jarrett is absolutely one of the top defensive tackles in the league and deserves to be compensated as such, but Aaron Donald is Aaron Donald. The man had 20.5 sacks last season. In one season.We probably will not know if the rumors are true but the Falcons are reportedly moving onto negotiations with Deion Jones. That may be a parallel track or it may be bad news for the team keeping Jarrett. It appears to gives more credence to reports the parties are not close in a deal. There may be a chance Jarrett is asking for more than the team can possibly pay and he finishes out his Atlanta career on the franchise tag either in 2020 or 2021. What is clear is the Falcons cannot afford to pay Jarrett like the best defender in the league with their current and future salary cap picture, regardless of how much they may feel he deserves it. ATLANTA (AP) — Pepsi is pouring it on in Coke’s house — injecting some fizz into its biggest rivalry during the buildup to the Super Bowl.While the visitors had called for a “cola truce” on social media with the NFL title game in the shadows of its competitor’s Atlanta-based headquarters, it seems to have been more of a Trojan Horse subterfuge designed to lure Coke into lowering its defenses.Billboards all around Atlanta call for Pepsi to “paint the town blue” and announce “Pepsi in Atlanta — how refreshing.”“I’d say Pepsi’s had a great heritage of being a challenger brand,” Todd Kaplan, Pepsi’s vice president of marketing, said Thursday. “The Pepsi-Coke rivalry has been going on for years. As a marketer, it’s been a fun, friendly kind of a thing. As a challenger brand Replica Julio Jones Jersey , it’s really embracing the role to show everybody we’re the official NFL sponsor. Do it in a fun way with a competitor that we respect.”But while Pepsi has been intent on having fun at Coke’s expense, Coke will be tapping into its home-field advantage: Because it owns the “pouring rights” at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Coke products will be for sale at the fountains during the game between the Patriots and Rams. But the drinks will be served in NFL-themed Super Bowl cups.That hasn’t deterred Pepsi. The company, based in Purchase, New York, wheeled a life-sized statue of its founder, Caleb Bradham, in broad daylight to toast a soda with none other than the statue of Coca-Cola founder John Pemberton. The meeting came just outside the World of Coke museum in downtown Atlanta.And it didn’t last long.Pepsi was asked to leave a few minutes after setting up on the Coke property that’s located just a couple of blocks from the stadium.But Coke believes it has home-field advantage and has gone out of its way to stay above the fray.“I think certainly they came and they used Atlanta as an opportunity to have an Atlanta-focused message, and what I would say is that we have a message that is uniquely Coca-Cola,” said Brynn Bardacke, vice president of content and creative excellence for Coca-Cola North America. “I think we’re going to leave the rumbling to the football.“We’re going to use our advertising to talk about what’s important to the brand.”The latest chapter in the decades-long rivalry between Coke Stitched Julio Jones Jersey , the longtime leader in worldwide soda sales, and its not-quite-as-massive rival has been entertaining.Ask almost anyone around Atlanta — anywhere, really — and they have very strong opinions about the soda giants.Mark Meek, a Carolina Panthers fan from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, wasted no time choosing a side.“I like being the little guy, fighting for his place in the world,” he said. “I like it because it’s from my home state and we’ve got a little rivalry thing going with Georgia anyway. I like Lowe’s more than Home Depot. I like Pepsi more than I like Coke. I like the Panthers more than I like the Falcons. I like Bojangles more than I like Chick-Fil-A.”His friend Keith Priest, also Panthers fan from Winston-Salem, is a Coke man all the way.“Pepsi’s too sweet, way too sweet Baby Julio Jones Jersey ,” he said. “The carbonation seems better in a Coke. Every now and then I’ll get Cherry Coke, but other than that, it’s always just Coke.”Lest anyone forget that, Coke has bought the time slot right before the national anthem to roll out its big Super Bowl ad, “A Coke is a Coke,” a strategic move it would’ve made regardless of Pepsi being in his hometown.“Well, we are here to welcome everybody to the city, Pepsi included,” Bardacke said. “Our effort is really focused on what our brand is and means to people and really what we offer. The message at a high level is that Coke is for everyone.”Maybe so, but not for Kaplan. Pepsi knows where it stands in pecking order, and has launched a marketing campaign that Pepsi is “more than OK.”“Every day there’s a cultural truth that people get asked this question when they’re in a restaurant.” Kaplan said. “Sometimes they will order our competitor’s beverage and they’ll be asked the question Best Julio Jones Jersey , ‘Is Pepsi OK?’ That’s a question that, for years, people get asked, and we wanted to take that truth and flip it on its head. Absolutely, Pepsi is more than OK.”But not for Atlanta resident Jack Jessen.“You’ve got to go with the hometown teams,” he said. “Coke and Falcons.”For Houston resident Zephra Belle, there’s no way she’s drinking Coke.“I’m Team Pepsi all the way,” she said. “It’s sweeter. It makes me feel better. I haven’t adjusted to Coke. I don’t understand the Coke people.”
