Julio Jones is not stressing his contract position this summer.
Before getting his contract corrected, last offseason sat out. Jones told TMZ he doesn’t plan a similar boycott since he trusts owner Arthur Blank’s guarantee to get a new deal done.

“Mr. Blank gave us his sentence,” Jones said. “That is golden. … [Blank’s] note is that it’s going to get done. … There is no stress in my end. I am not considering it.
“[Blank] makes it easy for me to go out and only work every day rather than have one of these situations where there’s a holdout or anything like that.”
The Falcons brass has insisted a few times this offseason they intend to give Jones a new contract. Blank said he intends to create Julio a Falcon”for life”
Jones has two years left on his contract worth $9.6 million and $11.426 million, respectively. Currently sitting 12th among receivers in typical salary per year, expect the Falcons to boost Jones’ salary significantly with a brand new thing.
Between the owner’s promises and Jones’ assurance, the hope is a fresh bargain materializes in the forthcoming weeks, therefore the Falcons could fly through training camp and in the regular season without the inescapable, looming question circling above.
