With Grady Jarrett now inked to a 4-year extension, the question for the Falcons now is when does Julio Jones get a deal and how much will it be worth?

John Fricke and Hugh Douglas speak about Julio Jones and what the mindset is for him and for the Falcons.

"The way the Falcons have moved so far, I don't think Julio's pressed. He's going to get his money," says Hugh. "Arthur Blank has been a man of his word, so if I'm Julio Jones there is no need to fret. I'm going to get my money."

Hugh adds that getting a deal done quickly should be important to hopefully have all players enter the season with just one thought on their minds.

"They're trying to go into the season with no distractions, trying to focus strictly on football," according to Hugh Douglas. "They don't want any disgruntled players, they don't want anybody worried about their contract, they're trying to win a Super Bowl. And that's why, for Julio Jones, it might be a situation where, Julio isn't going to get paid until the end of the season, but as long as he's cool they can go out and do what they need to do and focus on football."

To further complicate things, Julio actually may not be the next Falcons taken care of.
