Falcons tell Julio Jones to suck it

Recommended Posts

Well, the actually said "no new contract this year". You be the judge of what was actually said.   Links to news to come...

Julio was told he won't get a new contract this year, not giving him his desired raise.  They are currently focused on Grady Jarrett, Jack Matthews, and Ricardo Allen rather than budgeting a renegotiation for Julio.  Julio was informed "several weeks ago" of the team's decision.

"several weeks ago" sounds like "at Cam's kickball game" to me.

Falcons may look to rework his contract next year.  Or not. Who knows?

We should give him some type of kickback for dropping the ball in the end zone.

He's great, but he has two years left on his deal.

I'll rarely, if ever, support an extension with 2 years remaining...especially when those years cap hit's are as low as they are for ATL.

Really wish they would make a mistake with this one and extend him.

Hope he turns prima Donna and causes big distraction, holds out of camp, etc.

He actually has 3 more years left.

Doubt he will. He was at Matt Ryan’s camp over the weekend.

Not saying he will but him being at Ryan’s camp means literally nothing. His beef is with the team management not his fellow players. And he has skipped out thus far...

Ouch....

We want guaranteed contracts.

We want to re-negotiate said contracts halfway through.

We want security.

We want to keep up with the market, not be locked into a "unfair" deal.

 

Confusing.

I agree 100%... It's ridiculous how they sign these contracts then want more. Every contract should have in it mandatory that if there's a holdout before contract is complete, they forfit money for the entire year. Non negotiable. So fuging sick of this poo every year now, you sign a fuging contract... Honor it. If you think you deserve more, ask for more at signing, not halfway through when you see other getting paid more then you.

The easy solution is stop guaranteeing anything but the signing bonus and a base salary for injury. Everything else is incentive based. That way players who outperform make more and those who don't make less. That is pretty much what happens in every other field but sports.

Agreed.  I keep hearing about "guaranteed" contracts.  That's what they have now.  Whatever is guaranteed at signing...is your only guarantee.

If the NFL players want to move to guaranteed contracts like some of the other sports, they will have to start accepting much shorter deals.
