Dimitroff discusses ‘time frame’ on Jarrett, Jones deals

He stated that the team remains in contact with Todd France, who represents Jarrett, but for the first time acknowledged that Jarrett could end up playing in the coming season on the franchise tag, which he recently signed.

“I’m confident that something will get done one way or the other,” Dimitroff said, while being interviewed by Bill Polian and Alex Marvez. “If it doesn’t, we have a year to continue to talk about it.”

Jones’ price tag keeps going up as the wide receiver market was re-adjusted by the Raiders giving Antonio Brown a new contract.

Dimitroff said there was no “time frame” on the deal.

“I’m not concerned at all, but for the fact that ... it is unbelievable where the numbers are going and the reality of it is that you have to be very mindful of the market and the market is dictating where Julio will be and we know that.”
