|Title||the move was a financial deci|
|Description||The Falcons have made it clear to wide receiver Julio Jones that he’s not getting a raise before the start of the regular season. But that doesn’t mean they’re not looking to do some deals. Via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Chris Doleman Jersey , the Falcons haven’t budgeted for a renegotiation for Jones, but are “focused” on contract extensions for three other players. That list includes defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, left tackle Jake Matthews and safety Ricardo Allen. Jarrett is entering the final year of his rookie deal. Allen is working on his second-round tender as a restricted free agent Tom Brady Jersey , and Matthews is on the fifth-year option of his rookie contract. With those three key contributors in the final year of their respective deals, it’s understandable for the Falcons would want to get them taken care of first. But Jones, who has three years left on his deal Tedy Bruschi Jersey , has registered his disappointment by not showing up for any of the team’s offseason work. He did go to quarterback Matt Ryan‘s passing camp with other teammates, but it’s unclear at the moment if he’s planning to show up next week for training camp. The Bengals are reportedly parting ways with a five-year starter in their secondary. NFL Media reports that the team will release safety George Iloka. Iloka, a 2012 fifth-round pick Byron Maxwell Jersey , has started all 76 games he’s played over the last five seasons for the Bengals and has started every game the team has played over the last two seasons. He had 80 tackles and an interception for Cincinnati last year. Per the report, the move was a financial decision. Iloka was due $5.3 million in base salary and roster bonuses this year with a cap hit of $6.2 million. The team will get $4.4 million of that cap space back once Iloka is officially off the books. Given the timing of the move and the pace of the safety market, Iloka’s unlikely to see that kind of money from another team. With Week One rapidly approaching Derek Carr Jersey , it remains to be seen if he’ll secure a new home at any price before the start of the season. The Bengals drafted Jessie Bates in the second round this year. He joins Shawn Williams, Clayton Fejedelem and Brandon Wilson at safety. Adidas Seth Jones Jersey|
