A local Atlanta news anchor found out directing statements toward athletes and sports teams on social media is a good way to get trolled.
That was in response to Buck Lanford of Fox 5 tweeting this message when Jones appeared to be headed for a holdout awaiting a new contract:
Buck Lanford @BuckFOX5
Dear @juliojones_11, My 10 year old son is a huge fan. The pic below has been his long time screen saver. Tonight, he told me he is changing it to a solo shot of @M_Ryan02 or @devontafreeman. Just thought you should know. Sincerely, BL @AtlantaFalcons @GoodDayAtlanta https://t.co/ocjmPAPYIp
Lanford did use Jones' official Twitter handle in his message, so perhaps the five-time Pro Bowler was so distraught about losing his spot as a screen saver that he moved to get a new deal done quickly.
Fortunately for the Falcons and their fans, Jones will be present during training camp to get ready for the upcoming season.
