Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones: 'I'm not holding out'

FLOWERY BRANCH -- Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who's hoping to land a contract extension with the team, has an interesting contract stance.

"I'm not holding out," Jones said on Wednesday.

Just is set to enter the fifth year of his rookie contract.

“The only thing I can do as a player is come out here and compete. That’s on my agent, Thomas and the Falcons. I want to be here for a long time, but it’s on them to make that decision.”

Jones had no idea if the negotiations were close to be done or what stage they were in.

(Check back later for a full story on Jones' contract stance with the Falcons.)
