GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Atlanta Falcons’ wide receiver Julio Jones is pushing a project he says will add hundreds of jobs in Gwinnett County.

Jones spoke to lawmakers Wednesday at the state capitol.

The mixed-use development, near the Mall of Georgia, is expected to bring more than 300 jobs.

Jones also told lawmakers the Falcons are working on bringing the city of Atlanta a Super Bowl win.

We're working on getting the chemistry back as a team and get the ball rolling, and it starts in April,” Jones said.

 

Governor Deal also tweeted a picture with Jones, who gave him a signed jersey.

JJ11 is a SUPERHERO. The BEST WR...on and off the field...is on OUR squad. God Bless this Gentleman. I can't remember who said it, but JJ11 is "Terrell Owens without the drama".

I know someone who is involved in the project. It's going to be a retail investment property.

What does putting his hand on his chest have to do with anything?

Uhhh, patriotism, referring to another character trait, besides entrepreneurship. One more facet of a great, well-rounded kid.

That mega-project at MoG is gonna be epic. I live 5 min from the Mall and traffic is already a ***** up there lol gonna be worse with the new entertainment center. Actually Gwinnett Co really is an extension of Atlanta. Either way, I'm excited for it and the stuff Julio is pushing for shows he is more than a once in a lifetime talent for us, he is an exceptional businessman as well

It is a mixed use development. I posted an Atlanta Business Chronicle about this month's back, like during the summer or early fall. 

It involves, apartments, retail, restaurant and a hotel. A $300 million dollar development.

"Also included will be a 50,000-square foot family entertainment center that officials said will boast “luxury bowling, sports theatre, arcade, private event space, restaurant and “multi-faceted entertainment options.”

My guess is they're referring to the permanent jobs needed to run a mixed use facility - management, maintenance, retail positions, etc.  What they don't mention are the hundreds of temporary jobs created to build it.

I have been staunch on  no one player is worth 6 draft picks.

Today I see that JJ is clearly worth a lot more, and just stepped into the realm of Priceless.
