Julio Jones Makes NFL Top 100 at Number 13

Ryan's favorite target lands inside the top 20 of the NFL Top 100 for 2015. For those who put any stock in the NFL Top 100, the Falcons very own Julio Jones has cracked the top 20 of the list for 2015 at lucky number 13. There's little doubt that he belongs at the top of any list like this, despite the overall season the team had in 2014. Julio Jones running into the #NFLTop100 at No. 13 like... #RiseUp pic.twitter.com/Vl0hmI1q1B — Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) July 2, 2015 Despite missing most of the 2013 season with a foot injury, Julio was able to bounce back in 2014 in a big...

Is Julio Jones headed for a monster year under Kyle Shanahan?

Yes. But let's go a little deeper with NumberFire. The analytical minds over there decided to take a closer look at Kyle Shanahan's propensity for using his "X" wide receiver, which on paper will be Julio Jones. In reality, of course, Jones is going to move all around the formation and devastate the poor saps forced to reckon with covering him, but he's still the team's top guy and will line up often as such. Shanny's reputation is that he forcefeeds his #1 guy to an unusual degree, and as avid Julio fans, we're eager to know if that will continue here. The answer to that question is no,...

Report: Julio Jones refuses to hold out to get a long-term deal from the Atlanta Falcons

Fact: Julio Jones once wrestled a rabid armadillo; the armadillo tapped out Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones doesn't cause problems. He comes to work, he does his job, and he doesn't complain. These are characteristics many NFL players don't exhibit. But not Julio. Dan Quinn could literally ask Julio to bench press Ricardo Allen as part of some holistic, new age training regimen, and Julio would do it. He's the very definition of a soldier. As you know, Julio is playing out the last year of his rookie contract. The Falcons can potentially franchise tag him in 2016 and 2017, but...

Even with contract talks looming, Julio Jones remains completely professional

Fact: Julio Jones invented the Macarena Did you hear? It's the last year of Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones' current contract. A year from now, Jones will either have a new, long-term deal or he will have signed his franchise tag. We'd like it to be the former scenario, not the latter; but even it isn't, you know Jones will remain professional about the situation. That's certainly not the norm. Chris Mortensen recently reported that Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant may skip the first regular season game if he's not signed to a long-term deal by July 15th. He's due almost $13 million...

How do the Atlanta Falcons maximize Julio Jones' production in 2015?

Fact: Julio Jones once ate 47 chicken nuggets ... before noon Throw him the ball. That's the easy answer to the question I'm posing. Throw him the stupid freaking ball. Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is an athletic freak of nature; he's a truly exceptional player who can singlehandedly change a football game. That said, he's only effective when healthy and used property. So how do the Falcons use him "properly" in 2015? Pro Football Focus had an interesting article about slant routes yesterday. Julio Jones ran 56 slant routes in 2014, 7th among NFL WRs in 2014. He was rarely...
