Is the Julio Jones contract extension finally coming this Saturday?

Photo by Scott Cunningham/ There may be a reason everyone is so confident about the new deal getting done soon. Thomas Dimitroff got to work last week, signing the team’s top, young defenders to up to $125 million in new deals. Grady Jarrett and Deion Jones are most certainly happy to get paid but the new Julio Jones deal remains the team’s most outstanding issue. This has been a long saga for Jones who tried to angle for a new deal last year. He received a decent pay bump and a promise the full extension is coming in 2019. It’s still not here yet, so why is everyone from Jones...

Falcons feature separation specialists at wide receiver

Falcons feature separation specialists at wide receiver

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports An in-depth look at how Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Mohamed Sanu get so open Maybe the most underrated responsibility for a wide receiver is to create separation from his defender before the ball ever even touches his hands. Of course, nothing is more important than catching the ball as a WR, but those who can’t get away from the defender seldom get that opportunity. The NFL features some of the most athletic, quick, and technically sound people in the world playing defensive back, and their main objective is to keep the opposing team’s WR from...

How elite receivers age and what it might mean for Julio Jones

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ Julio’s one-of-a-kind, but we can still get a good idea of when he’s likely to decline. The question on many peoples’ minds as we edge closer to a new contract for Julio Jones is this: How long can he keep doing this, and will he remain one of the NFL’s best receivers through another deal and perhaps beyond? Answering that question for Julio, who is a wizard who works exceptionally hard to take care of himself and has physical tools that we rarely see, is a tough one. The best we can really do is look at the history of receivers aging, when their decline...

Report: Deion Jones could sign contract extension today

Report: Deion Jones could sign contract extension today

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ Per the AJC, Thomas Dimitroff is moving fast with locking up young defenders. Seemingly only minutes after Grady Jarrett signed a four-year, $68 million deal to remain with the Falcons, it was reported the team was preparing to negotiate with star linebacker Deion Jones. Extensions with Julio Jones and Jarrett have been in process for over a year, so it was fair to think today’s meeting with agent Drew Rosenhaus was the first step in a long process. Per D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, it’s the last step in a long process. Deion...

Falcons and DT Grady Jarrett agree to new deal just before deadline

It’s finally done, and one of the team’s great defenders will be around for years to come. After an eventful offseason of negotiations, the Atlanta Falcons have signed defensive tackle Grady Jarrett to a new contract. Just this morning Adam Schefter said a long-term deal was “unlikely,” before upgrading chances the two parties as “hopeful.” Thomas Dimitroff needed Jarrett locked up to secure one of the top, young defensive linemen in the league, and then to turn his attention on the likes of Julio Jones, Deion Jones, and potentially Austin Hooper and Vic Beasley.

Falcons training camp battles: Many men and the dream of being the 6th wide receiver

Falcons training camp battles: Many men and the dream of being the 6th wide receiver

The Falcons have a half-dozen receivers jockeying for just one roster spot. The Falcons have five guys more or less locked into roles at wide receiver heading into the 2019 season. Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Mohamed Sanu, Justin Hardy and Russell Gage all bring something to the passing game, Sanu bringing actual passing acumen and Hardy adding value as the team’s premier blocker at the position. In addition, Gage is a core special teamer, meaning those five guys are pretty much locked and loaded. Beyond that, there’s probably only room for one more wide receiver on this football team...

Falcons training camp battles: Russell Gage vs. Justin Hardy

The veteran with great hands will be challenged by the young guy with big upside. The top three receivers for the Falcons are secured. Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu will see the bulk of passes from Matt Ryan in 2019. That doesn’t mean that the 2 or 3 additional receivers aren’t important. These are the guys who will contribute substantially on special teams and will be counted on to snag the occasional reception in larger passing sets. Those three spots are up for grabs, though. That fourth slot is a key one, though. That player will be active on game days and will be...

Falcons have until July 15 to work out an extension with DT Grady Jarrett

Things should be heating up with only six days remaining for a long-term deal. While the offseason headlines have been on coaching changes and a dramatically improved offensive line, the Atlanta Falcons will need to perform a magic act by keeping numerous Pro Bowl players under the cap. The team needs to worry about keeping Julio Jones, Grady Jarrett, Deion Jones, Keanu Neal, and Austin Hooper together. All the preceding players should be signing top-five deals for their position, with many potentially setting the market. Thomas Dimitroff was in a tough spot after deciding to exercise Vic...
