Signing big contract extensions usually begin and end in a boring old team office. This wasn't the case for Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones.

Though both parties hammered out the details in the office, it looks like the deal was set in stone on the field while Jones was preparing for a game. Owner Arthur Blank went up to Jones and congratulated him on the deal. The Atlanta Falcons video team managed to capture the moment and posted it on their Instagram.

Here's what the team said on the post:
