  1. The man racks up receiving yards like no other!
  2. keep in mind he missed 13 games in 2013.
  3. But let’s cut him still.
  4. Dude literally almost had all our offensive yards. Not to mention they didn’t count his 50+ yard catch. Ryan gets paid 30 millions a year to be a freaking game manager. I’m tired of protecting him. Julio is the one that need protection. Pay the man!!!!!
  5. Dont know if this was posted but I ran across it and thought it was interesting. It echoes some of the sentiments I feel about Ridley and what he will bring to the offense. We’re in a very unique situation because even tho Julio has two guys watching him at all times if Calvin makes an immediate impact it won’t be so easy to double Julio and Matt will have games where he can’t miss because the defense is helpless. Most teams only have ONE Good corner. A few Two like us. And usually that 3rd one is gonna get it. With us basically having 3 #1 wr’s that 3rd guy is gonna get it. Especially if Sark gets the pre snap movement back on track. Watch out falcons fans. Get ready for the ride!!
  6. Wednesday, Jul 25, 2018 11:50 PM Falcons announce that receiver Julio Jones will report to camp Matthew Tabeek DIGITAL MANAGING EDITOR FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff announced late Wednesday night that receiver Julio Jones will be at team headquarters when the players report for the 2018 AT&T Training Camp here on Thursday. Here is the statement Dimitroff released: “We have had continued dialogue all offseason with Julio and his representation. We have come to an agreement with Julio, and we will re-address everything in 2019. I appreciate everyone’s hard work and communication on this. “This adjustment does not impede us from working on other extensions with other key members of our football team. We will continue to work on those contracts going forward.” Jones was absent for the Falcons’ minicamp this summer, but his arrival at training camp means the offense has all hands-on deck to begin preparation for the 2018 season. It also offers the first opportunity to see Jones and first-round pick Calvin Ridley on the field together – and to catch a glimpse of what type of impact that combination could have this fall. In 2017, Jones led the Falcons with 88 catches for 1,444 yards and three touchdowns. He also became the first player in NFL history with three games of over 250 receiving yards, when he caught 12 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-20 win over the Buccaneers in Week 12 last season. The first practice of Falcons training camp will be held at 9:20 a.m. ET on Friday morning. Gates open to the public at 8:20 a.m. Click here for the complete 2018 AT&T Training Camp schedule. The team’s first preseason game will take place on Aug. 10 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., against the New York Jets. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET. Now the cry babies can stop crying!
  7. Ladies and gentlemen: start your engines! When the Falcons report for training camp on Thursday, Julio Jones won't be there. One of the league's best wide receivers skipped offseason workouts and now, according to's Ian Rapoport, Jones is willing to skip the entirety of training camp while he waits for a pay raise -- despite the Falcons making it clear that they had no intentions of doing so at this time. Nonetheless, Rapoport adds, "[Jones] appears resolute in his mindset." Jones risks $40,000 per day in fines. Jones inked a five-year, $71.25 million contract extension in August 2015 (including $47 million guaranteed) that now makes him ninth in average annual salary among all wideouts. And while it's one thing to make less than Antonio Brown ($17 million annually, on average), it's something completely different to be looking up at Sammy Watkins ($16 million) and Davante Adams ($14.5 million). Jones is set to make $14.2 million in 2018, which goes a long way in explaining his decision to stay away from the Falcons' facility. Jones ranked sixth in efficiency among wideouts last season, according to Football Outsiders' metrics. He had 88 catches for 1,444 yards but managed just three touchdowns in 16 starts. But 2017 was Jones' least productive season since 2013; in 2016 he averaged 17.0 yards per reception and scored six times; in 2015 he had a whopping 136 receptions for 1,871 yards and had 104 receptions the season before that. Still, Jones is the centerpiece of the Falcons' downfield attack, one that starts with franchise quarterback Matt Ryan and now includes rookie first-rounder Calvin Ridley. Back in May, Jones told TMZ that his absence during offseason wasn't about money. "It's not even about [my contract]," Jones said at the time. "Everybody wants a story right now. There's no story to be told. I'm just working. I'm getting myself better. I'm just working on myself right now. There's no bad blood between me and the team or anything like that. Everybody on the outside trying to look in and destroy what we built there." It sure sounds like this is, in fact, about money. And that's understandable. But the Falcons don't appear interested in negotiating a new deal, what with Jones having three years left on his current contract. Now the question becomes: who blinks first?
  8. I think he’s the best in the game right now, I think he has 2-3 years left playing at this level. That’s me establishing his value. But I think we underutilize him, and our QB likes to spread the ball. I would argue that the #1 WR position has become devalued because of the spread offense. I don’t want to do it this year, he has 3 years left on his deal and has NO leverage. But next year, what if we solve some cap problems by trading him? We get immediate cap relief, use it to keep a young defense together (Devondre, Rico don’t hit FA) AND we pull multiple first and second round picks. Its a page out of the enemy’s book, but the Patriots have longevity for a reason. They draft well and understand when to sell high. I don’t ever want to see him wearing another jersey, he’s a monster weapon. But we can build for the future and keep our core intact. Let’s have some rational discussion.
