Will Julio Jones show up for mandatory minicamp?

eagles_126When the Falcons convene on Tuesday for a mandatory minicamp, the biggest question continues to be whether receiver Julio Jones will be there.

Jones skipped all Organized Team Activities, reportedly because he’s not happy with his contract. And while he has denied it during an impromptu discussion with TMZ, the prevailing view continues to be that he’s sending the team a message about dissatisfaction with his compensation package, which averages $14.25 million and pays $10.5 million this year.

Manziel has acknowledged the steep learning curve but told reporters before his first preseason game that he has a pretty good grasp on almost everything that we’re doing. He said he has played Jones’ run-and-shoot scheme a million times on EA Sports’ NCAA Football, and Jones said his approach in many ways mirrors the three- and four-receiver sets Manziel utilized at Texas A&M.

Of course, the charitable arm of the team and the football side dip out of separate pots, but Spielman knows he’s about to have to write some big checks, and soon.

It’s a good problem to have, but we have a very high-priced roster right now,” Spielman said. And eventually some of those guys are going to get aged out, just like we had some of our other Pro Bowlers, . . . and you have to replace them.”

They already have six players with cap numbers over $10 million a year, and two more topping $8 million. That’s going to cause them to adjust elsewhere on the roster.

The hardest thing right now is the economic structure on our team where we have all these high-priced guys now because they all deserve to get paid the way they’ve been playing,” Spielman said. But economically, we’re not going to go out there, you can’t play fantasy football and have $3 (million), $4 (million) or $5 million backup guys. Those are going to be the young guys that we’ve drafted or we’ve developed.”
