As he looks for a new contract, Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones was not present as his teammates reported for minicamp Monday.

The team issued a statement on the star’s absence:

“We have been in contact with Julio and his representation. We will not discuss those conversations publicly except to say we feel they have been productive and constructive. We understand the concerns and thoughts from their perspective. Although not ideal, Julio informed us today he would not be attending minicamp.

“We have much respect for him and what he means to our team, our city and our fans.”
