    As the resident Falcon fan, I think Jones should hold out and I think the Falcons shouldn't re-negociate.

    There are people in line who need deals before Julio gets another new one. I know he's their best player, but they can't set the precedence that they will rip up 2nd contracts with 3 years left. Too many players on their team will be in that position soon.

    Pretty sure Julio is one of those players who can miss 95% of camp, show up with merely days left before season and still be a beast in week 1.

    Yea, he's working out with T.O., and despite his other issues, T.O. was always 100% on point when it came to fitness.

    What exactly is he holding out for?

    I'm not sure what his problem appears to be. He was already given the $47.5 mil, no? :help:

    The contracts that lessor WR's have received this off season is why.

    So....he wants more money, then.

    I guess $71 mil isn't enough.

    Hopefully he doesn't expect all that money up front again, if he's going to keep crying like this. :laugh:

    Well like I said, I don't think the Falcons should give in. But I have no issues with what he's doing.

    When he comes back, the effort and results will be what they've always been.

    The best Julio can hope for is that they do what the Steelers did with Antonio Brown - restructure his last 3 years to convert some of his 2019-20 base into a 2018 bonus. So, it delays the issue and keeps everyone happy.

    I love how far behind the NFL is with the rest of football world when it comes to schematics offensively.

    No surprise holdouts so far.

    OBJ is on his best behaviour and trying to be a good guy for the team so they pay him but it's risky. I wouldn't blame him if he stayed off the field.

    I wonder what they'd be looking for, not that the Panthers really have the cap space.

    Seattle finally waives Malik McDowell, who never so much as practiced with the team.
