Deion Jones may return against Saints

Deion Jones wasna€™t in a talking mood, but he relented Monday for 57 seconds to let you know that if he does return to playing football Thursday night when the Falcons play the Saints, it will not be a big deal to strap up against his hometown team.

Here was a€œDebo,a€ owner of the broken foot that kept Atlantaa€™s best defender out of the last nine games, pulling everybodya€™s foot even asA  numbers dona€™t lie about whether he likes playing against New Orleans.

a€œIf I play this weekend, ita€™ll just be another opportunity to be out there with my boys,a€ he said after reporters twisted his arm to answer a few questions following the Falconsa€™ rare evening walk-through. a€œThata€™s pretty much how Ia€™m looking at it.a€

So, ita€™ll be no big deal to get back to work in New Orleans, where you were a legend at Jesuit High before starring at nearby LSU?

a€œNah,a€ he said. a€œI just want to be back on the field. Ia€™d rather be on the field.a€

The Falcons want their middle linebacker back, too, and not just because he went to the Pro Bowl earlier this year after his second season as a professional, but also because Jones slays the Saints like nobodya€™s business.

And oh, yeah, hea€™s by far the best option the Falcons have to cover Alvin Kamara, the Saintsa€™ menace from Norcross, Ga.,A  who might well be the best pass-catching running back in the NFL.
