Although Jones is absent while reportedly seeking a new contract, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is not concerned.
"He's great for our organization and our team," Ryan said Wednesday, according to MMQB's Jonathan Jones. "They'll resolve (Jones’s contract dispute) and get those things worked out."
The 2016 NFL MVP, who signed a lucrative five-year extension himself last month, continues to vouch for his teammate.
"I understand that there’s a business side to this sport, too," Ryan said. "I don't like getting involved in other people’s business. I know I don't like speaking about my business, so it’s not my place to get into that."
"As far as drama or anything like that, he's one of the best teammates you could ever be around. He’s one of the most unselfish players. He's all about winning, and those are the things that you love."
Jones and Ryan remain one of the top offensive duos in the NFL, accounting for 43 touchdowns since 2011.
