    Julio Jones is starting to feel like a member of the Atlanta Falcons. Jones, the NFL’s No. 6 overall draft pick, worked out at on a field Tuesday for the first time with quarterback Matt Ryan and other new teammates. During the league’s lockout, Falcons players have routinely been running 7-on-7 passing drills at Buford High School, but this marked Jones’ debut on a field. The former Alabama standout did not run full speed, deciding it was best to jog his routes and catch some easy passes. He’s still recovering from foot surgery on a stress fracture that was discovered after the NFL combine. “I went to Dr. (Robert) Anderson in Charlotte (N.C.), and he released me last Tuesday to run,†Jones said. “They just told me to take it very slow. That’s what I’m going to do.â€

    Good for Julio. Not like he has to be in an extreme hurry anyway.
