Good news for Atlanta Falcons fans as their five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Julio Jones will be in red and black next season, as the 29-year-old has come to a contract agreement with the organization on the eve of training camp.
Jones skipped the Falcons’ mandatory minicamp and OTAs in an attempt to fatten up his five-year, $71 million contract that runs through 2020. The Falcons converted nearly $2 million of Jones’ 2019 salary into a bonus for this year, according to the Atlantic.
Atlanta general manager Thomas Dimitroff released a statement about the contract negotiation:
“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 on other extensions with other key members of our football team. We will continue to work on those contracts going forward.”
Yesterday, a local broadcaster named Buck became a mockery online when he attempted to bully Jones into entering Falcons’ training camp using…..his 10-year-old son’s screensaver?
This fucking guy.
Following the agreement, the Falcons organization appeared to mock Buck by posting the below:
Buck thank you and your son for your service. What’s best for Julio and his family should only be secondary to the background on your son’s computer that you watch porn on.
