    Jones made six tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints.

    Jones finished his sixth season in the league with 137 tackles (one shy of his career high), two sacks and one forced fumble. The 2016 second-round pick has recorded at least 100 tackles in every season of his career expect for 2018, when he appeared in only six games. Jones' 2022 contract is fully guaranteed, so he's expected to be back in the middle of Atlanta's defense next season.
