Julio Jones, Falcons are still negotiating 

He’s not waiting on Saints, Cowboys to deal with Thomas or Cooper 

“I don’t really want to talk about the contract,” Jones said initially on Tuesday.

When asked if he was waiting on the Saints and Michael Thomas or the Cowboys and Amari Cooper to strike a deal, he discussed the situation. 

“Nah, we’re not in the same boat,” Jones said. “They got their own thing going on. I’ve got my thing going on. I’m not waiting on Michael Thomas. I’m not waiting on Amari Cooper. It’s just us going back and forth, negotiating. That’s it. There is nothing at this point for me to tell. My thing is coming out here, working with the young guys and being ready when the season starts.”  

Jones said he will not play in the exhibition season.
