Falcons promise Julio Jones to talk deal after season


Julio Jones sat out offseason workouts in hopes of getting a new contract. The Atlanta Falcons will not acquiesce — at least for now. The Falcons are not planning to renegotiate the All-Pro receiver’s contract with three years left on the deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday, according to a source informed of the team’s thinking. However, the Falcons aren’t completely ignoring Jones’ desire for a new contract. The team promised him in June they would work on a new deal after the 2018 season, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. Jeff Schultz of The Athletic first reported the team’s decision to not negotiate a new contract this season.
