I think Debo & Julio had deals in place for a few weeks.  Just contingent upon Grady’s deal getting finalized

Julio is getting 5 years, 100 million IMO

QB numbers.

But Jo ya gonna call? So glad to have a HOF receiver.

Yeah possibly - all this didn’t come together in 24 hours for sure.

Agree with Julio numbers.  Doubt that will be a good contract for Falcons because paying Julio $20mm/yr when he is 34 and 35yrs old will probably be a brutal overpay if he is in decline.

I agree.  2 years younger & 100 million is more palatable. 

But with Debo front loading a bit, his APY will only be 9 million for the next 4 years.

What do you think we are looking at as far as guaranteed money on this contract? $50mm?

He’s way too old to get 5 years as a receiver. That would be a mistake

I think Arthur is fairly stubborn - if Julio doesn't want to retire before his contract is up, I doubt the Falcons would cut Julio or ask him to take a paycut, either.

I'm fairly certain w/ Julio - regardless of what the guaranteed money says - Falcons will probably pay Julio every penny of the contract he signs - whether he is still producing at a high level or not.

I just think Blank has Julio and Matt on a different pedestal than every other player - rightfully so.    Now, is not cutting Julio at the end of his contract smart financially or from a football business standpoint?   probably not a good move but.....Arthur's word is...

You are probably right, brother. You almost can't blame Arthur, though. After going through that whole Vick mess he has to be elated to be writing checks to guys like Matt and Julio. And one thing about him, and you said it... that dude is a man of his word.

Julio will get paid.  Luckily, I think Julio respects Blank enough to not ask for more than he's worth.  Blank is being fair and honest, and Julio is riding in the man's jet.  So I see this as 4 years $75M.

This. No WR will ever be worth 20M/yr at 34. Ever

I agree, i think the delay on announcing them is just to fire up camp.

They've been working on Julio's deal for like 2 years now.

What do you think Julio's contract numbers will look like? I'm sure at least $20 mill per season. 

Whatever it is he's worth it.

I'm sure he got more than his share out of Vick financially. It's why Vick got his last contract amount. He just didn't get the multiple he targeted.

You have to admit, though, the Jones boys cruisin’ on Blank’s jet together, with Debo’s contract already being reported... is a good sign.

That’s why Artie needs to stay out of it and let TD deal with it

You think Blank slipped them a little hush money under the table? Id be cool with that as long as Julio actually honors his next contract and stop wanting more money every year
