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 absent from workouts (Mon May 20, 09:41 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was not present for the start of organized team activities Monday, May 20.

Our View: About 10 days ago, Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said he's "very encouraged" by Julio Jones' extension talks. The team expects Jones to be at mandatory work in the middle of June, but they only thought he'd sparingly participate in voluntary workouts. The Falcons should get a deal done with Jones that makes him the highest paid wide receiver in the league.

Falcons | GM happy with Julio Jones contract talks (Sat May 11, 04:58 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones' agent has been talking with the Falcons about a contract extension for Jones, and general manager Thomas Dimitroff said he is very encouraged with the talks. Dimitroff said there is no timetable for an agreement.

Our View: It sounded like the two sides were making headway towards an agreement earlier in the offseason, so expect this to get done before the season. Jones is still playing at a very high level and should become one of the five highest paid players at his position.
