The Facts: Following up on a previous item. ... According to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, Jones will soon be the highest-paid wide receiver in football. "My understanding is the Falcons and Jones are closing in on a deal that would pay him $20 million a year over a four- or five-year contract extension. He would get anywhere from $50 million to $60 million in new guarantees," one source told Freeman.
Diehards Line: Freeman went on to stress the deal isn't done. As with any negotiation, contract talks are always fluid, and things can change in an instant. The talks with Jones could take longer, or fall apart, or continue to proceed smoothly. But the indications are that the two sides seem to be nearing an agreement that will make both Jones and the Falcons happy.
