The Falcons are a strong bet to improve on their disastrous four-win campaign of last season for two reasons:
At least, he will be come training camp, according to Falcons coach Mike Smith, who told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that both Jones and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon won't be "doing a whole lot" during the team's offseason conditioning program or full-squad minicamp later this month.
"Our focus is strictly on getting them ready to go for training camp (in late July)," said Smith, who told reporters in April that his star wideout was ahead of schedule.
Jones was placed on injured reserve last season after suffering a Week 5 foot injury that required surgery. Weatherspoon sat out Atlanta's final two games of the year with a knee injury, saying last month that he was still at roughly "80 percent" health.
