Blank Says He’ll Do Whatever He Can to Keep Jones a Falcon for Life

Cleveland Browns v Atlanta Falcons

There’s no doubt that the Falcons should do whatever they have to in order to keep star wide out Julio Jones as a member of the Birds for life.

Today Falcons owner Arthur Blank told the teams official website that the organization is going to do whatever they can in order to keep Jones with the Falcons for life.

Falcons Owner and Chairman Arthur Blank addressed the media during practice on Sunday, and when asked about the status of wide receiver Julio Jones contract negotiations, said: “We are in the middle of those discussions, we expect Julio to be a lifer for the Falcons. We are moving forward and have every reason to be positive and be enthusiastic about it. We are moving as quickly as possible.”

Blank is impressed with the shape that the superstar receiver returned to camp in, and praised the fact that Jones and his agent are constant professionals. Blank downplayed the current situation as strictly just a business deal and is in good faith that it will all work out.

“This is a business transaction, a business deal that we have to get through,” Blank said. “There is always a little bit of a dance when you go through this kind of situation. But, we are dealing in good faith. And, as I said earlier, we expect Julio to be here for his entire career.”
