The Atlanta Falcons statement was relaeased yesterday about Jones not being there and had this to say about his stance on his contract.
“We have been in contact with Julio and his representation. We will not discuss those conversations publicly except to say we feel they have been productive and constructive. We understand the concerns and thoughts from their perspective. Although not ideal, Julio informed us today he would not be attending mini-camp.
“We have much respect for him and what he means to our team, our city and our fans.”
The Falcons need Jones, without him, they’re offense would suffer greatly. I think you pay the man his money. He’s well worth it, the guy alone is a one man offense.
