Despite consistent success in their tenure with the Falcons, people want to put Mike Smith and Thomas Dimitroff on the hot seat. Those people can simmer down now, as the Falcons announced one-year extensions for the pair on Monday.

Additionally, Atlanta gave president and CEO Rich McKay a four-year extension through 2019.

"We are fortunate to have talented key leaders at the Falcons who are dedicated to a common goal of being a league leader on and off the field," Falcons owner Arthur Blank said. "I have great respect for the skills and commitment of Rich, Thomas and Smitty, and I look forward to continuing to support and work with them in the years to come."

Smith and Dimitroff both were headed into the final year of their respective contracts in 2014, not a great look with them coming off a nightmare four-win season.
