Julio Jones on his contract: ‘I’m in a great place’

There’s been speculation that a deal is in place, but can’t be signed until a year after his previous extension, per the collective bargaining agreement.

Jones said that any new contract was “confidential” and that was an “in-house” matter. 

Jones signed his most recent contract extension July 27. Jones’ new deal is expected to average more than $20 million per year.
