Schefter says the Falcons will meet with Jones’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, for face-to-face negotiations on Wednesday in Atlanta.
Jones, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Falcons back in 2016. He’s entering in the final year of his four-year, $4.546 million contract and set to make a base salary of $1.07 million for the 2019 season.
In 2018, Jones appeared in six games and recorded 53 tackles, one sack, two interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, a forced fumble and six pass defenses.
We’ll have more on a new contract for Jones as the news is available.
