Falcons linebacker Deion Jones, a former Pro Bowler, had offseason shoulder surgery and will miss the offseason program, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports

The Falcons expect Jones, who went to the Pro Bowl after the 2017 season, to be ready for training camp in late July.

“We’ll see where it goes with Deion,” Falcons coach Arthur Smith told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “He’s got something cleaned up in the offseason. So, he’s not going to be out there anyways. He’s rehabbing. He should be ready to go by camp.”

Jones finished second on the team with 137 tackles last season as the Falcons switched to a 3-4 defensive front. Jones, who has 11 career interceptions and five touchdowns, didn’t have an interception nor a touchdown last season.
