“I’m not going to hold out for anything," Jones said. "My teammates need me. I’m being selfish if I’m not here and doing what I need to do.”

Report: Falcons WR Julio Jones will attend OTA on Tuesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The 26-year-old Jones has been worth the gamble. He landed a Pro Bowl spot last season, setting the franchise record with 1,593 receiving yards on a whopping 104 catches while coming back from a fractured foot sustained the previous year.


Falcons turn attention to extension for Julio Jones


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) With the NFL draft completed, Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said signing wide receiver Julio Jones is a priority for the team, reports ESPN.com.

"There is no question that our focus in the future will be on Julio Jones and where we are," Dimitroff said. "I don't want to get into specifics about the timing of that, obviously. But now that the draft is over and we continue to build this football team, we understand that Julio is a very important part of our building and evolving as a championship-type team."

Jones is a two-time Pro Bowl player and can become a free agent after the 2015 season. Jones has had to deal with foot issues during his career, which Dimitroff said wasn't an issue.

"That's not my concern right now," Dimitroff said. "That's not my concern, period."


Falcons intend to keep Julio Jones 'for years to come'


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitorff confirmed Thursday at the NFL combine that the team intends to keep Jones in a Falcons uniform 'for years to come.'

Jones will become an unrestricted free agent after the 2015 season, but Dimitroff said the team needs to be careful with how they offer salaries.

"You take a quarterback, who's going to be very expensive and then take wide receiver and a couple of other positions and make sure that you are paying market value and also making sure that you have enough space on the team to do the right thing," Dimitroff said.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
