It looks like the Falcons should have a new deal in place with future Hall of Fame receiver Julio Jones in the coming weeks:
The Falcons and Julio Jones are not far apart on a new contract and a deal could be finalized in the next few weeks. @TheAthleticATL

It was basically a foregone conclusion that Julio would get a new deal this offseason after the Falcons frontloaded some of the money in his contract to 2018. Now, the Falcons will likely have to give Julio a deal in excess of the one that Antonio Brown received from Oakland, which was a three year $50.125 million deal with $30.125 guaranteed.
We will provide more updates as they become available.
