Falcons | Atlanta still looking to sign Julio Jones

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 16:48:42 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is still talking with the team about a contract extension, but the talks stalled significantly last week, according to sources. Owner Arthur Blank said he is still optimistic that the two sides can reach an agreement. Jones is willing to play for $10.176 million this season if no agreement is reached.

Fantasy Tip: Jones likely will receive an extension at some point, but it may come during the season. Jones is one of the top fantasy receivers available this season and should be selected in one of the first two rounds of most drafts.

Falcons | Julio Jones brings professional approach

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 15:36:50 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has brought a positive approach to his contract negotiations, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff Thursday, Aug. 13. "Julio Jones' approach to this contract is the most professional and team cognizant that [I've] ever seen," said Dimitroff.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has insisted he's not worried about the contract negotiations, while the Falcons general manager and owner Arthur Blank have repeatedly said they're confident a deal will get done. Jones should slot in closer to the contracts signed by Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas, than the one T.Y. Hilton signed with the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is coming off a monster season, and he's proven himself as one of the most dominant wide receivers in football. It makes sense for the Falcons to use him in different areas of the formation. Wherever he lines up, Jones is worth drafting in the late-first or early-second round.

Falcons | Julio Jones has no contract update

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 16:55:33 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said Monday, Aug. 3, his agent and the team have been discussing a contract extension, but he didn't have an update. "I don't know," Jones said. "Seriously, I don't know where it's at. I don't know when it's going to be done. I don't know if there's a deadline. I don't know what's going on. I'm just here, playing ball," said Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Jones still has no plans to hold out, and he is scheduled to play out the 2015 season under his fully guaranteed $10.176 million option year salary. Jones will have a little extra something to prove in 2015 if he doesn't have an extension by opening day.

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 12:01:04 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said his agent has been talking with the Falcons about a contract extension. He said he will participate when practice begins Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is not planning a holdout and could receive an extension at some point during camp. Jones finished third in the NFL with 1,593 receiving yards to go along with his six touchdowns. Jones should be selected in one of the first few rounds of drafts and can be a No. 1 receiver on a team.

Falcons | Roddy White talks Julio Jones' contract

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 12:07:34 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to be the next big-name wide receiver to receive a multi-year extension. His fellow teammate and wide receiver, WR Roddy White, believes the Falcons should sign Jones right now. White said the longer they wait to sign Jones, the more it will cost them.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Jones is an elite real-life and fantasy receiver. He'll be receiving a big contract; it's just a matter of how much and for how long that contract will be. Jones should be considered a top-five fantasy receiver in 2015 and should be selected in the late-first or early-second round.

Falcons | Julio Jones, ATL to begin talks soon?

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 15:53:52 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones and the Falcons could begin discussions on a long-term deal in the near future now that Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant and Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas have agreed to long-term extensions. As reported earlier, Jones could receive a new deal before training camp begins Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is right up there with the likes of Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas, so one would think that his extension would be in the same range between $14 million and $16 million a year. Jones is another receiver that should be taken late in the first round or early in the second round of fantasy drafts.
