Julio Jones is not planning to report to Atlanta Falcons' training camp when it opens Thursday, a move that would follow up on tips he has lost all offseason.
The broad receiver has three years left on his contract of $ 10.5 million, $ 12.5 million and $ 11.4 million, but the annual salary is not guaranteed until week 1 of the season, ESPN reports . Jones may fined $ 40,000 a day to not report and the NFL Network Ian Rapoport reports that he is "comfortable sitting all the time." He skipped Falcons' Organized Team Activities, which are volunteers and one mandatory three-day minicamp.
Jones, who signed a $ 71.2 million renewal contract ($ 47 million guaranteed) in 2015, became unfortunate because he saw that other broad recipients received big contracts during the offseason s that he is the seventh highest paid recipient in NFL. Tampa Bay's Mike Evans, for example, received a five-year deal of $ 82.5 million and the last week's deal agreed to pay Brandin Cook's $ 80 million for five years. Falcons have said they would try to rework Jones's contracts after this season, after the template they created for quarterback Matt Ryan. With two years remaining on his contract, Ryan and Falcons agreed on a five-year contract of $ 150 million in May.
"We have been in contact with Julio and his representation," Falcon's General Manager Thomas Dimitroff in June when Jones jumped over the minicamp. "We will not discuss these conversations publicly except in saying that they have been productive and constructive. We understand concerns and thoughts from their perspective."
Jones, who were second in the league in passing last year's farm and his agent , Jimmy Sexton, has not had any comment, but the recipient joined Ryan and other recipients for
