The Bow Tie Chronicles: A flight through the Julio Jones free zone

In the 62nd episode of The Bow Tie Chronicles podcast, we take a flight through the Julio Jones free-zone, discuss the killing off of the Friday Night Lights event during training camp, the wide receiving corps and realistic expectations for rookie wide receiver Calvin Ridley. Also, the Falcons will have only seven open practices for the fans during training camp. The Vikings (18), the Chiefs (15) and the Ravens (15) have twice as many. The Jets, with not-so-media friendly head coach Todd Bowles, only have three.

How easily will you forget Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones’ holdout?

How easily will you forget Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones’ holdout?

Fact: Julio Jones is an amateur broccoli pickler Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones made a bold move last week. He had a big decision to make, and he made it. Maybe he made that decision on his own. He’s earned all his guaranteed money, and the Falcons just drafted college football’s best wide receiver.

Falcons have best receiving corps for 2018, per The Ringer
