Falcons LG Justin Blalock is scheduled to count $7.66 million against the salary cap in 2014 and could be a candidate for a contract extension.
Blalock inked a six-year deal ahead of the 2011 season and has two years left on that contract. He's still playing at an above-average level and was inarguably Atlanta's top offensive lineman this past season. Blalock just turned 30 years old. Interior linemen age better than other positions on the field. Feb 8 - 11:24 AM

Falcons agreed to terms with LG Justin Blalock on a six-year contract.

GM Thomas Dimitroff did well to keep Blalock and RT Tyson Clabo after preparing for the worst this offseason. Last year's third-rounder Mike Johnson will step in at right guard for Harvey Dahl, leaving Matt Ryan with an above-average offensive line once again. Solid across the board and still just 27, Blalock graded out as Pro Football Focus' seventh-ranked left guard in 2010.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution expects LG Justin Blalock to price himself out of the Falcons' range in free agency.

We guessed that Blalock would be the one free agent offensive lineman Atlanta would work hard to retain because he's younger than Harvey Dahl and Tyson Clabo. The AJC disagrees. A 27-year-old power blocker at 6-foot-4, 329, Blalock would be an excellent fit in Minnesota with old Falcons QBs coach Bill Musgrave. The Falcons are going to have a lot of turnover on the line.

Falcons selected Texas OL Justin Blalock with the No. 39 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

Blalock was the strongest player at the Combine with 40 reps on the 225 bench press and scored a 41 on the Wonderlic Test. He'll be an instant starting guard in Atlanta, where Bobby Petrino is getting rid of the smaller linemen and replacing them with stronger big bodies.
