Summary

Julio Jones enters the 2015 season as the unquestioned #1 wide receiver in the Falcons' stable of pass catchers. His impact on the team's offense was made clear during 2013 as the Falcons' passing attack struggled in Jones absence - (he was lost after week five, 2013 due to a fractured foot). Jones returned to health during 2014, finishing with career highs in targets (163), receptions (104) and yards (1,593) while hauling in six TDs over 15 games played. His best TD total to date came during 2012 (138 targets for 79/1198/10 receiving over 16 games). He is one of the dominant, young wide receivers in the NFL right now at 26 years of age. Roddy White's career is drawing to a close, and the Falcons' draftee at wide receiver this spring, Justin Hardy, is seen as a possession/move-the-sticks sort of short-to-intermediate route runner - he poses no foreseeable threat to Jones' continued status as the top wideout in Atlanta.

Falcons | Roddy White talks Julio Jones' contract (Sat Jul 18, 03:07 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to be the next big-name wide receiver to receive a multi-year extension. His fellow teammate and wide receiver, WR Roddy White, believes the Falcons should sign Jones right now. White said the longer they wait to sign Jones, the more it will cost them.

Our View: How much more will it actually cost to wait? There has been speculation that Atlanta is going to sign Jones to an extension before the start of training camp. If that's the case, then expect his deal to be similar to what Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas received earlier this week.
