Terrelle Pryor Sr. Color Rush Jersey
Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones made his statement by skipping the team’s mandatory minicamp Adidas Filip Forsberg Jersey , but the team remains confident he’s not going to be a malcontent.
In fact, coach Dan Quinn said he expected Jones would be quite happy by then.
鈥淭he good news is that there are conversations that have begun,鈥?Quinn said, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 鈥淲e鈥檒l keep those private. I have a lot of faith in the organization and also in Julio that things will get resolved with good communications. I鈥檓 sure that鈥檒l be a part of it as well.鈥?/p>
They’re not talking about the weather, but the fact Jones’ contract has been rendered substandard by the recent spike in wideout deals. That led to his staying away (even at the risk of $84,435 in fines) from the minicamp, as well as the offseason program.
Quarterback Matt Ryan said he anticipated seeing Jones at his passing camp in July, before the start of training camp. And Quinn sounds confident that Jones will be ready to report to training camp when the time comes.
As Bengals receiver John Ross tries to turn the page on a disappointing rookie season Terrelle Pryor Sr. Color Rush Jersey , he’s already ahead in one key respect.
As noted by Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Ross participated in 11-on-11 drills for the first time this season on May 22. Last year, it didn’t happen until August 14.
鈥淚t鈥檚 been a while,鈥?coach Marvin Lewis said, via Owczarski. 鈥淗e鈥檚 had so few snaps around 11 guys on the other side of the ball, so this was great work for him and great experience for him that he was not able to get a year ago. He鈥檚 had so few of these days. . . . This is a good chance for him over the next nine days to get another opportunity to play 11-on-11 football that he hasn鈥檛 had a whole lot of opportunity to do.”
Injuries contributed to ineffectiveness for Ross as a rookie, making the ninth overall pick in last year’s draft a borderline bust. This year, he’s looking to make some significant steps forward.
鈥淭he steps forward have to come out here ,鈥?Lewis said. 鈥淭here鈥檚 nothing he did otherwise that鈥檚 going to show anything different but just coming out here and getting comfortable playing football again. And doing it and making the adjustments and doing all the things he has to do as a receiver.鈥?/p>
The blazing fast receiver, if healthy, could become a major factor for the Bengals. Given all the attention that defenses devote to containing A.J. Green, Ross could get plenty of favorable matchups, if/when he’s healthy and able to contribute.
