had been expected to report for mandatory minicamp, although OTAs that were voluntary jumped. Monday’s news confirms they will be on the field this week.
Much the Joneses will do on the area is another matter. Falacons trainer Dan Quinn told The Atlanta as they rehab foot injuries that both Deion and Julio Jones will not take part in exercises this week.
Atlanta brass expressed confidence that deal scenarios for the flock of Falcons would get dealt with at any point.
The Falcons have to hammer out a deal with franchise-tagged Jarrett. The defensive handle already signed his franchise tender, meaning he’d have been subject to penalties if he skipped compulsory work (players not having signed their tags wouldn’t be subject to fines).
Deion Jones and beasley either enter the last seasons of their rookie contracts.
Julio Jones has two years left on his deal, however, the team is working toward a new contract that could re-align his cover with the top of the receiver market (currently 11 wideouts make more per year compared to Jones).
