  Falcons | Julio Jones should be fine for camp    Thu Mar 23, 02:27 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is expected to be at full health in time for the start of training camp in late July. Jones was wearing a boot, but he appeared to be moving around well and was not using crutches. A minor procedure was performed on Jones' foot March 6 after he played with the injury for most of the second half of last season.

Footballguys view: Jones should be fine in time for camp, so he'll be more than ready for the start of the season. We expect him to be a top receiver option in fantasy circles again come September.

Atlanta Falcons DT Dontari Poe's one-year deal includes a $500,000 bonus connected to meeting a consistent weight level, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.

  Falcons | Dontari Poe turned down additional dollars    Thu Mar 16, 06:52 PM

Atlanta Falcons DT Dontari Poe ended up turning down a one-year, $9 million deal (plus incentives) that was fully guaranteed from the Jacksonville Jaguars. He favored the Falcons all along.

Footballguys view: The Falcons appear to be closer to a championship, a likely factor for Poe. He may also stand out more in Atlanta, where there are less potential impact defenders. That would give him a better chance of cashing in on a contract in 2018.
