Just a few weeks ago Falcons GM Terry Fontenot told Fox 5 that he willing to take calls from teams for Jones.
“That’s one of those things when you’re doing things the right way in an organization, you have to listen if people call, on any player,” \“Especially, we are in a difficult cap situation, that’s just the circumstance and it’s not a surprise for us. We knew the circumstance we were in. Our administration has done an excellent job up to this point getting us in a position to be able to manage the cap, and yet we still have more work to do.”
