Hey, I just found a video online of a possible root method. Everything looks to be legit and was hoping to get some others feedback before I try to attempt this myself. It appears to use put the phone into download mode and then flash a twrp recovery onto it via Odin. Then you simply flash SuperSU via recovery and it should be rooted.
Here is the video I was talking about: (because of the XDA site spam filter I cant fully paste the link so just add the line after the youtube.com/ )

It looks legit to me. If Someone with more experience could chime in that would be great.

Nope that's for a G900F. Otherwise known as international version with an unlocked bootloader.

Our model is G900A with locked bootloader and doing the above video will soft brick your phone.

Yes, Not for AT&T. Samsung did not help anybody by using the same model number and only changing the last letter for different carriers and versions.
