Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

GM Thomas Dim­itroff fi­nally has the se­cu­rity he wanted from the Fal­cons. Dim­itroff signed a three-year con­tract ex­ten­sion on Mon­day, end­ing ques­tions about his fu­ture with the Fal­cons.

FLOWERY BRANCH, GA. >> Gen­eral man­ager Thomas Dim­itroff has signed a three-year con­tract ex­ten­sion with the At­lanta Fal­cons.

The team an­nounced the ex­ten­sion on Mon­day but fi­nan­cial terms were not dis­closed.

Fal­cons’ owner Arthur Blank has been pleased with Dim­itroff’s work with coach Dan Quinn. Blank gave Quinn the fi­nal say in per­son­nel mat­ters when he hired Quinn in Fe­bru­ary 2015.

The Fal­cons fin­ished 8-8 last year in Quinn’s first sea­son af­ter win­ning six of their five seven games. They’re off to a 6-3 start this year, have the NFC’s sec­ond-best record and en­ter a bye week in seem­ingly good shape to make the play­offs for the first time since 2012.

Dim­itroff and Quinn’s pre­de­ces­sor, Mike Smith, went 10-22 over two sea­sons fol­low­ing a trip to the NFC ti­tle game.
