Atlanta Falcons superstar wide receiver Julio Jones will participate in training camp as the two sides have reached a compromise.

According to The Athletic’s Jeff Schultz, Atlanta converted roughly $2M of Jones’ 2019 base salary into a bonus for 2018.

“We have had continued dialogue all offseason with Julio and his representation. We have come to an agreement with Julio, and we will re-address everything in 2019. I appreciate everyone’s hard work and communication on this,” Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement.

“This adjustment does not impede us from working on other extensions with other key members of our football team. We will continue to work on those contracts going forward.”

Jones had 88 receptions for 1,444 yards last season for the Falcons.
