The Atlanta Falcons and Julio Jones continue to discuss a long-term contract.

“We’ll continue to talk with both Julio and his representation,” Thomas Dimitroff said. “We’ve have had really good conversations with them. There is no particular time on that. I’m not concerned about it, nor is he. We’ll get that figured out.”

The Oakland Raiders have reset the market for wide receivers with their new deal for Antonio Brown. Brown received a three-year, $50.1 million deal with, $30.1 million guaranteed. 

“I know there is interest because of everything that’s going on with all of the receivers in the league,” Dimitroff said. “There are big numbers (being) talked about and a big situation there. Look, we feel good with our communications there.”
