Julio Jones to skip Falcons’ mandatory mini-camp

"Falcons four-time All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones will not attend the team’s mandatory mini-camp this week. Jones’ attendance has been the subject of much speculation since he declined to attend voluntary Organized Team Activities over the past two months.

he Falcons announced Jones’ decision Monday evening on the eve of the three-day mini-camp.

“We have been in contact with Julio and his representation,” Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement released. “We will not discuss those conversations publicly except to say we feel they have been productive and constructive. We understand the concerns and thoughts from their perspective. Although not ideal, Julio informed us today he would not be attending mini-camp.

“We have much respect for him and what he means to our team, our city and our fans.”

The issues appears to concern Jones’ contract, a situation he has not discussed publicly.

“I’m not going to comment publicly about the situation,” said Jimmy Sexton, who represents Jones, when reached by phone. “I’m going to let them say whatever they want to say.”

The Falcons were expecting Jones to take part in the entire offseason program, but after the market for wide receivers skyrocketed over the offseason, Jones apparently chose to work on his own.

Re: Julio Jones to skip Falcons’ mandatory mini-camp

He is coming to the end. Great WR but when a rookie on the Saints shuts ya down time to accept reality. Also lots of drops. Still a great season but that was based off really one killer game with trick plays. He was getting mowed down by less than elite CB's. All season. Reason they took a WR.

Or maybe we just hit the mother-lode with Lattimore - considering our history at CB, we were over-due...
