TODAY, No. 4 -- Taking care of Julio Jones and Deion Jones

The Atlanta Falcons announced they agreed to a four-year deal with defensive tackle Grady Jarrett. The move was not only in the best interest of Jarrett, who avoided playing next season under the $15.2 million franchise tag, but also allows the organization to turn their focus to other impending contracts.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Falcons are shifting their focus to getting a deal done with linebacker Deion Jones.

But what about Julio Jones?

"This Julio thing is really starting to be puzzling to me," Randy McMichael said. "They keep saying awhile for were under the impression that it was going to be done before training camp."

"Now it could still get done, and it probably will, but that's something to keep your eye on. If you get Deion's done, go ahead and do Julio's. But if you can't get Deion's done, are you going to rush to do Julio's?"
