The Athletic's Jeff Schultz reports the Falcons have informed Julio Jones he will not receive a new contract this year.
Jones skipped OTAs and minicamp to show displeasure with his contract, which makes him the league's eighth-highest-paid receiver behind Sammy Watkins, Jarvis Landry, and Davante Adams, among others. The Falcons told Jones they had "not budgeted" for Jones to receive a raise, and are hopeful he will report to training camp on time. Jones would put himself at risk of daily fines by skipping practices. LT Jake Matthews, FS Ricardo Allen, and DT Grady Jarrett are all considered higher-priority extension candidates; Julio is signed through 2020. The Falcons open training camp on July 27.

Julio Jones informed the Falcons he will not attend mandatory minicamp.

The Falcons previously told reporters they thought Jones would attend, but he was a no-show as players filed in on Monday. "We have been in contact with Julio and his representation," the Falcons said in a statement. "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." This officially makes Julio a holdout. Jones is currently the NFL's eighth-highest-paid wide receiver.

Julio Jones said his absence from OTAs is not contract related and he expects to spend the rest of his career with the Falcons.

Jones is reportedly looking for a "correction or update" on his contract, but he denies those negotiations have anything to do with his decision to skip OTAs. "Everybody wants a story right now," Jones said. "I'm just working on myself right now. That's all it is. There's no bad blood between me and the team." Jones should be back for the Falcons' mandatory minicamp on June 12.

The Falcons expect Julio Jones to report for mandatory minicamp.

Jones is skipping OTAs as he seeks a new contract. Now just the eighth-highest paid wideout in the league, Jones wants a correction as he heads into his age-29 campaign. It's the correct play from a wideout who might only have 2-3 years of his peak left.
May 22 - 2:36 PM

ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports Julio Jones "hasn't been seen" at the start of OTAs.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Jones was expected to skip last week. The receiver is reportedly looking for a "correction or update" to his current contract. Jones is scheduled to make $34.4 million over the final three years of his deal.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirmed Julio Jones is not expected to attend voluntary OTAs next week.

The Falcons aren't overly concerned as Jones was absent for most of OTAs while vacationing in China last offseason. Jones, who made headlines earlier this offseason when he deleted pictures of the Falcons from his social media, is reportedly looking for a "correction or update" to his current deal. Rapoport believes Jones has built up enough goodwill within the organization for the Falcons to accommodate him. The 29-year-old is due a reasonable $10.5 million salary in 2018.

Julio Jones caught 9-of-16 targets for 101 yards in the Falcons' Divisional Round loss to the Eagles.

Jones went 9/90 in each of the Falcons' playoff games. Although Jones' 88/1,444/3 regular season carried an air of disappointment in fantasy football — three touchdowns, really? — Jones' 1,444 yards were second in the league, as well as the third most of his career. He's cleared 1,400 yards 4-of-4 years since his serious 2013 foot injury. One month shy of his 29th birthday, Jones has yet to display any physical drop-off. One of these years, he's going to regress to the touchdown mean and put up at least 10. He will remain a top-five fantasy wideout for 2018.
Jan 13 - 8:01 PM

Julio Jones (ankle) is active for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Eagles.

Devonta Freeman (knee) and Mohamed Sanu (knee) are also active after being left off the injury report. The Falcons inactives are OG Sean Harlow, OT Austin Pasztor, RB Terrence Magee, WR Marvin Hall, LB Sean Weatherspoon, TE Eric Saubert, and CB Leon McFadden.
Jan 13 - 3:21 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the team has no injury concerns heading into Saturday's matchup with the Eagles.

It confirms Julio Jones (ankle), Devonta Freeman (knee), and Mohamed Sanu (knee) are ready to go, although there did not seem to be much concern about any of them. Freeman has a tough matchup, but Jones and Sanu are worth a long look in DFS lineups.
Jan 11 - 12:43 PM

Julio Jones (ankle) returned to practice Thursday.

Jones sat out the first two practices of the week, but there never seemed to be any concern about his status. It would not be a surprise if he is left off the final injury report. Jones will be a good DFS option against the Eagles on Saturday.
Jan 11 - 11:26 AM

Julio Jones (ankle) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Jones played through the same injury last week and led the team with 94 receiving yards. As of now, there's no concern about his status for Saturday's divisional tilt against top-seeded Philadelphia. Jones remains a fantasy staple and should be one of the top receiver plays in DFS this week.
Jan 10 - 4:38 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Julio Jones will not practice Tuesday.

Quinn also said there were no injury setbacks in the Wild Card win, suggesting this is just a rest day for their No. 1 receiver. Jones also sat out Tuesday's practice last week before returning on Wednesday and being left off the final injury report. There is no reason to worry about his availability against the Eagles.
Jan 9 - 9:12 AM

Julio Jones caught 9-of-10 targets for 94 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Wild Card win over the Rams.

The only Falcon to catch more than four passes this evening, Jones' touchdown was an eephus pitch from a slipping Matt Ryan. It was his fourth score in his past four postseason games. For the Divisional Round, Jones gets an Eagles cornerback corps he's more than capable of ripping for big plays.
Jan 7 - 12:27 AM

Julio Jones (ankle, ribs) is active for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Rams.

Jones sat out practice early in the week but wasn't listed on the injury report. Devonta Freeman (knee) and Taylor Gabriel (hamstring) are also active. The Falcons inactives are WR Marvin Hall, RB Terrence Magee, CB Leon McFadden, LB Sean Weatherspoon, OL Sean Harlow, OT Austin Pasztor, and TE Eric Saubert.
