Atlanta general manager Thomas Dimitroff released a statement with the announcement.
“We have had continued dialogue all offseason with Julio and his representation,” Dimitroff said in the release. “We have come to an agreement with Julio, and we will re-address everything in 2019. I appreciate everyone’s hard work and communication on this. This adjustment does not impede us from working on other extensions with other key members of our football team. We will continue to work on those contracts going forward.”
Jones was reportedly planning on holding out until he was able to come to an agreement on a re-structuring of his contract with the Falcons.
It appears the two sides will hash out the deal now in the offseason.
Jones has three years left on a five-year deal. He has $34 million left in his contract. He is currently the ninth-highest paid wide receiver in the NFL, according to Spotrac.
