Steve Young urges T.O. to reconsider his Hall of Fame boycott

  Steve Young urges T.O. to reconsider his Hall of Fame boycott Former 49ers receiver Terrell Owens won’t be going to the Hall of Fame for his induction ceremony. “It’s shocking,” Young said, via Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group, “especially in context for what it feels like to be there and the guys that you surround yourself with and the meaning it has personally and just for the team and the respect of all the people that got you there. . . . The relationship with the Hall of Fame for him has been difficult, because they delayed his time getting in. I’m sure there’s resentment and scar tissue about it, but I beg him to reconsider.

Parents will always be concerned with who their kids choose as friends, and NFL teams aren't much different: they want their stars surrounded by good people, wholesome influences, people who will help those players make good decisions. Which is a long way of saying the Falcons might not be thrilled to see Julio Jones, their star receiver who is in the middle of a holdout, spending a bunch of time this offseason with Terrell Owens.

In fact, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, while appearing on ESPN Charlotte radio, Julio training with Owens has made the front office uneasy.

"The fact that he's running around with Terrell Owens has the front office uneasy. The fact that he held out and is bucking the whole 'brotherhood' thing has them a little bit uneasy too," Ledbetter said. "They'll have to mend some fences, no question about it, once he returns."

This is a classic June NFL story. A star player skipping offseason training activities because he wants more money is hardly news. And that's what Julio is doing: the receiver approached things passive-aggressively at first, scrubbing his Instagram feed of any Falcons photos (insert "rolling eye emoji" here) and causing Falcons fans to freak the geek out.

What can Falcons do to fix Julio Jones' contract?

  What can Falcons do to fix Julio Jones' contract? The Falcons are talking to receiver Julio Jones about potentially fixing his contract. But what can the Falcons realistically do?The answer to the question will have ramifications not only for Jones but also to any other Falcons who want a premature contractual adjustment, especially since Jones has three years left on his prior deal.

Why the Falcons Shouldn't Be Concerned About Julio Jones Training With Terrell Owens . A report out of Atlanta says the Falcons are uneasy with star wideout (and current holdout) Julio 4. ESPN is reportedly hiring Jeff Triplette as a rules analyst for the upcoming season, which fans will

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones skipped the entire offseason program and spent time with a wide receiver famous for The Falcons aren’t thrilled about that. Jones has been working out with Terrell Owens , who during his own Hall of Jones is still expected to be there when training camp starts.

Jones would later break his silence and say "we're good" but the world knows better. Coach Dan Quinn even admitted to the rift by pointing out that conversations have occurred on a new contract with Julio. Jones signed a five-year, $71 million contract in the 2015 offseason, which means he has plenty of time left on his current deal. It also means he's been surpassed by other receivers, and it's probably obvious he does not like being paid less money than Landry Jones and Sammy Watkins. Such is life two years after you sign a five-year contract based pretty much solely on economic principles.

But the theoretical concern here for the Falcons is not Julio skipping, even if, as Ledbetter pointed out, Quinn was anticipating Julio's presence only to see the receiver flip. The concern for Atlanta is, as Danny Kanell noted on CBS Sports HQ Tuesday morning, having Owens out there giving Julio advice.

Terrell Owens is still doing his best to make a miraculous NFL comeback, but the Falcons aren’t worried about him beating their defensive backs. Instead, Thomas Dimitroff and the rest of Atlanta’s front office are concerned Owens can beat them at the negotiating table.

"Not that he's working out with him, that's not the problem," Kanell noted. "It's the chirping in his ear, the advice he's getting -- if he's taking advice from TO, I'd be worried."

You can boil this down either way, really. Owens is a Hall of Fame receiver, and will be inducted into Canton this coming preseason (he just won't be there when it happens). He's trained like a maniac his whole career and played for a very long time as a productive receiver. That's a guy you want helping your player train.
