Summary

Julio Jones continued his historic career production in 2018 with his fifth season averaging at least 100 receiving yards per game and his eight touchdowns marked the second-most of his career. Jones and Mohamed Sanu formed a quality tandem for two years before the infusion of first-round pick Calvin Ridley into the mix as one of the strongest trios of receivers in the NFL. Jones' volume did not suffer with a hearty 170 last season as Atlanta's overall passing volume ballooned from their tepid marks in 2016-2017. Jones' durability has been a marvel, missing a mere two games over the past four seasons despite being managed on a snap-to-snap basis in-game and curtailed practices for years as a well-developed veteran.

Falcons | Julio Jones nearing long-term extension? (Tue Jun 18, 01:54 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will have a long-term contract extension before training camp arrives, according to 'confident' team sources.

Our View: Jones is actually signed through the 2020 season but the Falcons aren't likely to make him wait much longer. The veteran superstar wideout attended mandatory minicamp in a good faith move. The team should make him one of the highest paid wide receiver in the league -- again -- with this new deal.

Falcons | Julio Jones will not practice (Mon Jun 10, 08:34 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will not participate in drills during mandatory minicamp because of a foot injury, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Our View: Jones played a full 16-game season in 2018 but he was bothered by a foot injury late in the year. The team doesn't need to push Jones as he's a seasoned veteran and a superstar talent. Jones wants a new contract even though he still has two years remaining on his deal and that's why he stayed away from voluntary offseason workouts. When mandatory minicamp began this week, Jones showed up at the facility...and won't do much while he's there.

Falcons | Four Falcons in attendance (Mon Jun 10, 10:14 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, DT Grady Jarrett, LB Vic Beasley and LB Deion Jones reported to mandatory minicamp Monday, June 10, after they skipped voluntary organized team activities.

Our View: The work is mandatory, so nobody wants to get fined. Jones is expected to get his contract restructured in the near future, even though he still has a couple of years remaining on his deal. We're expecting something to get done before Week 1 of the regular season.
