Matt Ryan: Very easy to get on same page as Julio Jones
Back in April, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said that he was excited about the chance to work with wide receiver Julio Jones this offseason after Jones was limited last offseason following foot surgery.
Jones isn’t taking part in voluntary practices with the team, however, and isn’t expected to rejoin the Falcons until next month’s mandatory minicamp. That may not have been what Ryan was looking forward to when the offseason program got underway, but the quarterback doesn’t see that as a problem as the Falcons prepare for the 2018 season.
About being on the same page: We’ve played together for a long time and when he’s healthy and when he feels good, like he does right now, it’s very easy to get on the same page, Ryan said, via the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He’s so talented. We’re fine. I think we’re in a good spot. We’ll get in some good work before the season starts, like we always do.

Our organization, all of us are available to you, and I know that includes Bryan Colangelo, and with deliberate speed, but don’t cut any corners, let us know what’s going on. … I have no information beyond that other than that the investigation is underway.
My agent’s doing a great job, Barr said. They’re having conversations. I don’t know too many details on that. My focus is here with the team and getting ready.
He’s set to earn $12.3 million this year, and if he was injured during team workouts he’d get that anyway, but he apparently wanted coverage for potential future earnings beyond that amount until a new deal is done.
Turnbow said that after she was left with abrasions on her shoulder when she was attacked by a fan at one game, the team told her to just suck it up.
We were harassed, bullied and body shamed for $7.25 an hour, said ex-cheerleader Ainsley Parish.
Texans spokeswoman Amy Palcic said the team is constantly evaluating its cheerleader program and makes changes as needed to make the program enjoyable for everyone.
