Copyright © 2020 United Press International, Inc. All Rights Reserved. The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports it will be a three-year deal worth $48 million to bring Fowler to Atlanta. More than likely, the team is either going to cut him or extend him before any of these numbers hit in 2022.
Dante Fowler’s contract gives Falcons cap flexibility but big future payouts. Dante Fowler Jr., Los Angeles Rams. 3 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, notched a career-best 11.5 sacks with the Rams last season, his second with the franchise after being traded by the Jacksonville Jaguars midway through the 2018 campaign. This was clearly designed to give the team maximum flexibility this year but as you’ll see, it will come at the cost of big cap hits in the next two years. Honestly, these numbers are to be expected. In theory, if the team cuts him before that point they could avoid that guarantee.
In an ideal world, they would be able to spread the cap hit out evenly across the entire contract. Frankly, this was the only way the team could afford him. pic.twitter.com/h8D9OODg7K, — Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) March 18, 2020, From @nflnetwork: The #Falcons are signing standout pass-rusher Dante Fowler Jr to a 3-year deal worth up to $48M, some huge help on the edge for coach Dan Quinn. Per Rapoport, Fowler will be signing a three-year contract for $48 million to join the Falcons.

March 18 (UPI) -- The Atlanta Falcons are adding a much-needed upgrade to their defensive line after agreeing to terms with Los Angeles Rams edge rusher Dante Fowler Jr. on Wednesday. By landing Fowler, Atlanta has officially replaced the often-ridiculed Vic Beasley Jr. as their top edge rusher. The #Falcons are giving pass-rusher Dante Fowler Jr a 3-year deal, source said.

It’s a big spot for him, but he can handle it. The #Rams tried to keep him, but he opts for Atlanta. Obviously, expectations are very high for Fowler, as he’s about to join a franchise who hasn’t had a consistently great edge rusher since John Abraham. Your privacy is safe with us. Atlanta could still look to bring back defensive end Adrian Clayborn this spring. Both players provide quickness off the edge to pair with star defensive tackle Grady Jarrett's push inside.

Per Rapoport, Fowler will be signing a three-year contract for $48 million to join the Falcons. Had they done that here, signing Todd Gurley (whose contract details are still pending) probably would not have been possible. Fowler, 25, has notched 141 total tackles, 27.5 sacks, 12 passes defensed, 43 quarterback hits, six forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries in four seasons between the Jaguars and Rams. If Fowler turns in two bad seasons in Atlanta, the Falcons will have no problem moving on from him in 2022. The Falcons will gift their next coach and GM a rebuilt offensive line and some stars, but there are deep holes here. Falcons offense vs. Vikings defense: who wins this matchup? Atlanta also could look at defensive linemen in the upcoming draft for additional depth. Fowler will only be entering his age-26 season after having not received the fifth-year option as a former first-round pick previously. He will be earning an average salary of $16 million over the life of the contract. Cap hit: $6.666 million ($2M base + $4.666M bonus proration).

On the flip side, if he has two good seasons, I would be incredibly shocked if they let this year of the deal play out. For now, Atlanta has to be thrilled about landing an emerging star pass-rusher that is about to enter his prime, a huge get for the Falcons. Well, Dirty Bird Nation’s prayers were answered on Wednesday, as former Los Angeles Rams outside linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. will be joining his former college coach Dan Quinn in Atlanta in his impending free agency. The Falcons were expected to target a standout pass-rusher in free agency after the team parted ways with former sack champ Vic Beasley Jr., who agreed to a deal with the Tennessee Titans this week. Atlanta Falcons fans have been dying for a consistently competent pass-rusher for a very, very long time.

Fowler, who played for Falcons head coach Dan Quinn while at the University of Florida, will fill a major need for Atlanta's pass rush. He missed the entirety of his rookie season after tearing his ACL on the first day of minicamp. Coach Dan Quinn actually coached Fowler while at Florida.

Ultimately, how the Falcons go about addressing their other needs at cornerback and running back after parting ways with Desmond Trufant and Devonta Freeman will go a long way in seeing if the Dirty Birds can contend in the NFC South next year. Or they could let him sign elsewhere.
Fowler had played for Quinn briefly in college on the Florida Gators and was taken a few spots ahead of Beasley in the 2015 NFL Draft. One of the biggest decisions facing the Los Angeles Rams this offseason is whether or not to re-sign Dante Fowler Jr. to an extension. The Falcons already have a Pro Bowler along their defensive line in defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, who is essentially Aaron Donald Lite for the Dirty Birds.

The Falcons already made it clear that they won’t be having a "fire sale" by trading away the team’s top talent. Will the Falcons consider trading contract-year veterans? Here’s how that breaks down. The Rams could sign Fowler to a multiyear deal, another one-year contract or use the franchise tag, which would be about $16.2 million.
