Julio Jones is seeking a new long-term contract extension with the Atlanta Falcons, but he decided not to skip OTAs this week.

Jones was not expected to hold out after Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said earlier this month that the receiver's contract status loomed as a top priority after the draft.

The Falcons picked up Jones' fifth-year option for 2015 and could slap him with the franchise tag in 2016 if a deal can't be worked out.
