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.

NFL | Potental 2016 free-agent WR class stout (Wed May 20, 12:28 PM) - The upcoming group of potential free-agent wide receivers includes four of the positions most dominant players, including Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green and Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, according to Spotrac.com. All four players are engaging in contract discussions on some level with their current teams.

Our View: This is making the assumption that Bryant and Thomas don't sign new long-term contract before the July 15th deadline for franchise-tagged players. We think both Green and Jones could get franchise tagged next offseason if they don't get extended some time before then.
