Arthur Smith keeping conversations with Julio Jones private, has no comment

Falcons head coach Arthur Smith will not comment on the Julio Jones matter as he plans to keep every conversation with his player private 

Falcons coach Arthur Smith fielded questions from a dozen reporters on Tuesday morning regarding the recent comments made by Julio Jones on FS1’s “Undisputed” show with Shannon Sharpe.


Jones was asked on a call if he wants to go to Dallas after being spotted in a Cowboys jersey over the weekend. He was also asked if he plans to stay in Atlanta and here's what the seven-time Pro Bowler had to say:

"I'm outta there," Jones said. Sharpe then asked Jones where he wanted to go and he said, "I want to win."

Smith didn't comment on any question regarding Jones and what was said. The first-year head coach was adamant in saying any conversations with his players will remain private.

"Like any private conversation I have with our players is going to remain private on my end," Smith said. "I'm not going to sit here and comment on any potential roster moves we may or may not make."

It's been one week since the rookies arrived in Flowery Branch. Take a look back at the best images from rookie minicamp before Phase 3 of the offseason program begins next week.
