Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff reported late Wednesday night that star wide receiver Julio Jones will be at team headquarters for training camp. The team begins camp on Thursday and Jones will be in attendance with the rest of the team.
Statement from Dimitroff:
“We have had continued dialogue all offseason with Julio and his representation. We have come to an agreement with Julio, and we will re-address everything in 2019. I appreciate everyone’s hard work and communication on this.
“This adjustment does not impede us from working other extensions with other key members of our football team. We will continue to work on those contracts going forward.”
Jones has been very clear that he does want an extension but was able to come to terms with the team. He was absent from Falcons minicamp this summer but did show up to Matt Ryan’s private workouts in Florida. This is music to the ears of Falcons fans everywhere as their star wide receiver will be a full-go to start the 2018 AT&T Training Camp on Friday.
We can all breathe a sigh of relief now, as the Falcons officially start their quest for Super Bowl LIII.
