Former sports agent and salary/contract expert with CBS Sports, Joel Corry, joined The Morning Show with John and Hugh Tuesday to try and calm folks down about Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones.

As was reported by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jones will not attend OTAs, and is looking to "update" his contract.

Corry said if the Falcons are going to do anything with Jones' contract, you look at what Pittsburgh did with Antonio Brown, converting the money into a signing bonus. Or, as a second option, they could do what the Patriots did with Rob Gronkowski by adding "incentive" money into his contract.

"Teams don't just rip up deals and renegotiate," said Corry. "If Julio Jones wants a new contract where he's at the top of the receiver market, good luck with that."​
