Before the start of the Falcons’ offseason workouts on Monday it seemed like everyone on the team was excited about Julio Jones’ participation in the team’s voluntary workouts this year.
Th Falcons report for their offseason program on Monday. Jones, who was out last offseason after foot surgery, will fully participate this year.
“It’s huge when you get any player to be able to participate fully,” Ryan said. “That’s critical. But you never know, the offseason and seasons are different every year. I think he came through the year, but I don’t want to speak for him, but he came through the year fairly healthy.”
Coach Dan Quinn said that Jones would be back at the owner’s meeting and discussed the important of practice for all of the players.
“We’ll see where he’s at,” Ryan said. “I haven’t been able to work with him up till this point. But I will start next Monday. I’m excited about getting back to work not only with him, but with all of our guys.”
However something happened this afternoon to Jones because he shut down his social media accounts and removed any association with the team which sent Falcons fans into a frenzy.
