 It was time for the Falcons Report on Dukes and Bell Thursday as the guys reacted to the Julio Jones contract situation as the team has said they are not going to restructure Jones' contract.

“If they said they weren’t going to give him a new deal then that’s what they will do," said Carl Dukes. "They treated him right when he was up for a contract they made him the highest paid receiver at the time and by not paying him now is them sticking to their identity.”

“The concern I have is you have to be able to manage your cap," said Mike Bell. "And you have to be able to sign these young guys whose contracts are coming up.”
