Owner Arthur Blank values Julio Jones, but a contract extension is on hold pending the arrival of the new coach.
Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is supposed to officially accept the head coaching job in Atlanta following the Super Bowl. It's difficult to imagine that his first order of business will be to ignore the need for a contract extension for Jones. He's an elite receiver and without him, the Falcons simply don't look as strong. Expect Quinn to make Jones' new deal a top priority.
