“We know what Julio is in this league. We have a very good idea of approximately where he’s going to be, which I won’t share specifically,” Dimitroff said. “The good thing is we’ve never been held by our owner to be limiting someone and we’re very good with our football players here. We feel very proud of how we approach it.
“And again, where we approach it with Julio, we look at everything, of course. We believe that he should be the highest-paid player — sorry, I did not say player — the highest-paid receiver in the league. And I know he believes that. It’s just how we’re going to approach this and how we’re going to get it done. I believe it’s right around the corner but I don’t want know when it is.”
At 30, Jones isn’t likely to receive a five-year, $100 million extension. What he is likely to receive is a shorter deal with a higher annual value.
Which is still a risk, but much less than if they signed him through 35. Either way it’s not a deal I would give him. I don’t care how good he is.
