Julio Jones Won\'t Hold Out For New Deal 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jul 9, 2019 12:39 pm

Julio Jones trusts Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank and says he won\'t sit out as he awaits a new contract.

\"Mr. Blank gave us his word,\" Jones said. \"That\'s golden. ... [Blank\'s] word is that it\'s going to get done. ... There\'s no stress on my end. I\'m not thinking about it.

\"[Blank] makes it easy for me to go out and just work every day and not have one of those situations where there\'s a holdout or anything like that.\"

The Falcons have insisted several times this offseason they plan to give Jones a new contract.

Jones has two years left on his contract worth $9.6 million and $11.426 million, respectively.
