The Falcons are yet again close to signing wide receiver Julio Jones to a new contract.

This time, they must mean it, since they’re re-arranging the numbers on the balance sheet.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Falcons have done simple contract restructurings with left tackle Jake Matthews and safety Ricardo Allen, giving them bonuses now and lowering their base salaries this year. Of course, it pushes bigger cap hits into future years, but the cap keeps going up so teams tend to not mind (until they do).

EVP Stephen Jones doesn't think Cowboys are close to deal with Ezekiel Elliott

EVP Stephen Jones doesn't think Cowboys are close to deal with Ezekiel Elliott Despite reports that a deal with Ezekiel Elliott could be coming any day now, Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones thinks it could still be a while before a contract is agreed to by both parties. Speaking during his weekly appearance with 105.3 The Fan, Jones was asked if a deal will happen soon. He replied, “I don’t think we’re close because there’s not a lot of activity.” Jones did say he’s “optimistic” that the Cowboys will have all their stars on the field and hinted that things could come together quickly. “We feel confident things will get done,” said Jones. “Things happen real quick, sometime within hours.

That creates immediate cap space to absorb a Jones deal, which has seemingly been “close” all offseason. Owner Arthur Blank upped it yesterday by saying they were “very, very close.”

Jones attended camp this year, and has taken Blank’s promise of a new deal as a good faith gesture. Now, they’re ready to finally finish it.
