Despite his clear desire to receive a raise prior to the start of the 2018 regular season, the Atlanta Falcons have informed All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones that he will not be receiving a raise prior to the regular season, according to The Athletic’s Jeff Schultz.

Jones is just two years into a five-year, $71.25 million contract extension he signed with the Falcons back in 2015.

Jones, who averaged over 100 catches and has had at least 1,400 receiving yards over the past four seasons, will earn $10.5 million in base salary this season.

While the Falcons will not give Jones a new contract, explaining they do not have money budgeted to do so, they are hopeful that he shows up for training camp.
