According to reports, many NFL teams are calling the Atlanta Falcons to inquire about the availability of wide receiver Julio Jones. The establishment of Georgia will be very cautious.
General Manager Terry Fontenot said in an interview with FOX on Tuesday: “When you do things the right way in your organization, you have to listen to whether people are calling for players.
“Especially because we are in the upper limit dilemma. These are our conditions. This is not surprising to us. We know which ship we are on.”
“So far, our administration has done a great job, allowing us to manage the limits. However, the CEO added that we still have a lot of work to do. This is why when the team called to talk about a player we We have to listen, and then we have to find what is best for the organization. We have to deal with all of this in the classroom.”
According to the professional website Spotrac, the Falcons have only $2.4 million under the maximum allowable expenditure. Therefore, they will have to find a way to free up more space to award contracts to the players they select in the next selection.
In order for the deal involving Jones to be profitable in the case of Falcons, the team should logically wait until June 1 before sending it to other skies. Indeed, this will allow Atlanta to split the bonus owed to the 32-year-old athlete over the two seasons, thereby saving more than $15 million in wages in 2021.
“Obviously, we value this special player very much,” Fontenot said of Jones. What he has achieved and what he continues to do here is very special. However, if this is correct for the team, we must consider all situations, because we must do what is best for the organization. “
Jones was selected in the first round (sixth round) of the 2011 auction. He played for the Falcons for all 10 NFL seasons. He is the group record holder for most catches (848) and collected yards (12,896).
Last year, due to injuries, Alabama’s Crimson Tide products were limited to nine games. He has 51 catches for 771 yards and only 3 touchdowns.
