Falcons’ Julio Jones says he won’t hold out for new deal

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.
