Jay Adams of AtlantaFalcons.com reports that the Falcons have announced the extension of general manager Thomas Dimitroff to an undisclosed multi-year deal.
Dimitroff’s extension follows that of head coach Mike Smith, who got three years added to his deal back at the beginning of February. Dimitroff is coming off a year in which he was named The Sporting News’ top NFL executive. Dimitroff has been instrumental in the rapid ascension of the Falcons since being hired in 2008, due to his solid drafting, free agency moves, and the decision to hire Smith in the first place. He is considered one of the brightest young minds in the business.
