Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones either hasn’t paid attention to the flap over rookies attending the NFL Draft or he’s not too concerned about it.
As a projected top-15 pick, he wants to get the usual rookie treatment.
“I have not heard anything about that, but hopefully I will be there to shake the commissioner’s hand,” Jones told WQXI via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “Yes, sir, I want an opportunity to go to New York and be able to experience that.”
PFT Live guest Colin Kaepernick said he will spend draft day with his family. Kaepernick said he decided on this route before the work stoppage began, but staying home could be a popular route for youngsters who don’t want to be caught in the middle of a labor war.
Jones apparently isn’t worried about any pressure coming from the NFLPA* just yet. He wants to get his man hug from Roger Goodell, just like last year’s crop of rookies.
