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 to report to camp (Sun Jul 21, 12:12 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will report to camp with his teammates Sunday, July 21. Jones is seeking a new contract, and owner Arthur Blank said the team is amenable to giving him one.

Our View: Jones deserves to be at the top of the wide receiver pay scale and the Falcons will save money if they lock him in now, but there's no sign that a new contract is impending at the moment.

Falcons | Julio Jones' extension talks could drag (Mon Jul 15, 04:09 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones' contract extension is now the team's 'most pressing priority,' but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport states that it 'might take a while.' However, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jones' agent and the team are scheduled for face-to-face negotiations on Wednesday, July 17.

Our View: Jones is signed through 2020 and has previously stated that he won't hold out. With DT Grady Jarrett signed on Monday to a long-term deal, the Falcons can solely focus on getting another big-money deal for their superstar wide receiver. Jones is hoping this contract makes him a Falcon for life.
