Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones emphatically stated that he isn’t going to be playing anywhere else but Atlanta, expressing his desire to stay with the franchise for his entire career.

“I’m not going anywhere,” Jones said, according to TMZ Sports. “I love the team, I love the organization, I love everybody there. We’re good.”

Falcons owner Arthur Blank said he wanted Jones to remain a Falcon for life.

“As I said about Matt Ryan, how I wanted him to be our quarterback for his entire career, Julio Jones will be our receiver for his entire career,” Blank said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Jeff Schultz. “This is just a normal kind of discussion that takes place. We’ll deal with it.”

Despite skipping OTAs, Jones insists that there are no issues between him and the team regarding his contract.

“Everybody wants a story right now,” Jones said. “There’s no story to be told. I’m just working, getting myself better. I’m just working on myself right now. That’s all it is. There’s no bad blood between me and the team or anything like that. It’s just everybody on the outside trying to look in and destroy what we built there.”
