NFL.com's Jeff Darlington interviewed Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan on Tuesday. His first question was about wide receiver Julio Jones and how he has looked on the field in the first few days of camp. "I think he's looked great," Ryan said. "I think he handled the surgery well this offseason and the rehab. He was incredibly detailed in how he was in here going everything he needed to do in order to get ready for camp. Really, through the first four or five days of camp, I've thought he's looked back to himself and maybe even better. He's looked really, really good so far." FANTASY ANALYSIS:...

Falcons WR Julio Jones looks 'explosive'

Jones is showing no lingering issues with his surgically repaired foot, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. Jones is moving well, accelerating and stopping with ease. While the Falcons are limiting his reps in camp, that is reportedly a cautionary measure, and not because of any setbacks in Jones' recovery. Jones missed 11 games in 2013 with a broken foot. FANTASY ANALYSIS: This is excellent news for would-be Jones owners, and also for those interested in Falcons WR Roddy White. While Jones' health will continue to be a concern, the fact that he looks 100% is extremely encouraging. White, for...

NFC South Most Feared Players 2014: Julio Jones

After being shelved following foot surgery in 2013, Julio Jones watched his teammates suffer a miserable 4-12 season in a year that they were supposed to be among the league's elite. Now, for the first time in his career, he'll have the opportunity to be the guy for the Atlanta Falcons offense. In 2014, Jones looks to lead his team back to the ranks of the elite, and they have just enough people sleeping on them for him to do so. The NFC South looks to be tremendously competitive in 2014.  From the Buccaneers going back to their Tampa 2 roots, to the Panthers fielding one of the best...

Julio Jones to be featured on Thursday Night Football's

Julio Jones to be featured on Thursday Night Football's "Under the Lights" special this Fall

Fact: Julio Jones' Cheetos are cheesy, but not dangerously so Julio Jones has an almost mythical quality about him. He's like Bigfoot, just less human. And that's to be expected anytime someone has Jones' draft pedigree. After all, the Falcons gave up more picks to get Jones than a lot of teams have at their disposal in an entire draft. But what's really cool is the respect he's getting league-wide. For a team that doesn't get much praise in the media, Jones is akin to a Falcons ambassador. So when Thursday Night Football announced that they will feature Jones on their "Under the Lights"...

Falcons WR Julio Jones to see limited reps in camp

Falcons head coach Mike Smith says that Jones will be limited in early camp work, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "He'll be limited in terms of his snaps," Smith said. "Our number one goal is to make sure that we've got everybody as healthy as we possibly can be." Jones is recovering from surgery after breaking a bone in his foot last October, an injury which held him out most of the year. The Falcons are the subject of HBO's "Hard Knocks" this year, and Jones' situation should be well-covered there. FANTASY ANALYSIS: This is a situation in which fantasy owners should play...

Julio Jones will be limited to begin camp

Falcons star receiver cleared for training camp Julio Jones, the Falcons' dynamic young wide receiver, has been cleared for training camp practice, which starts on Friday, head coach Mike Smith told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday. However, Jones, who's recovering from foot surgery, will be limited. (Atlanta Journal Constitution) FF Today's Take: Jones is coming his second foot surgery for the same issue so it's wise for the team to be cautious with their star receiver. The fact that his snaps will be limited shouldn't change his status as a WR1.

Mike Smith: Julio Jones cleared for training camp practices, will be kept on

Mike Smith: Julio Jones cleared for training camp practices, will be kept on "snap count"

Fact: Julio Jones' sandals neither flip nor flop Julio Jones fifth metatarsal bone is a huge jerk. Like take Alex Welch, get him real drunk on malt liquor, then set him free in an elementary school playground. Just kidding, Alex's probation officer won't allow him to be around kids. Jones' fifth metatarsal bone is that kind of jerk. But alas, modern science! Per Mike Smith, Jones was officially cleared for training camp. The AJC's D. Orlando Ledbetter has the details, but it looks they will keep Jones on a "snap count" of sorts. "He will be limited in terms of his snaps," Smith said....

AJC: Julio Jones Received Experimental Stem Cell Procedure On Ankle

The Atlanta Journal Constitution had a huge update on Julio Jones' injury, health and a new procedure where Julio is the "test case". Only three years ago Peyton Manning underwent stem cell therapy, a procedure so successful his neck is now strong enough to hold up a crippling Super Bowl loss. According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones received a similar, experimental procedure. The article helps shed some light on Jones' injury, information the Falcons usually hide in a secret room 500-feet underneath Flowery Branch. How did...

The Arrow Is Pointing Up For Julio Jones

The dynamic fourth year receiver is on track to rejoin the Falcons in 2014. There have been muted concerns about the recovery of one Julio Jones, primarily because foot injuries are frightening and those that involve breaking a screw in one's foot are even more frightening. Yet the team seems to harbor few concerns about his recovery. From Vaughn McClure: Although Jones is coming off a significant foot injury, the Falcons are certain he'll return to his old explosive self. The explosion is key. Tony Gonzalez was a chain mover in the twilight of his career, but it opened up things for...

ATL confident Julio Jones will return to old self

Under contract through 2015 Giving QB Matt Ryan all the protection in the world means nothing without playmakers catching the ball. That's why the Falcons have to lock up top receiver Julio Jones with a lucrative, long-term contract. Although Jones is coming off a significant foot injury, the Falcons are certain he'll return to his old explosive self. At his best, Jones is probably one of the top two receivers in the league, along with Calvin Johnson. Johnson makes $16 million per year; Jones will make $10,176,000 in 2015 as part of the option year. (ESPN) FF Today's Take:...

Patrick Peterson spurns teammates, calls Roddy White, Julio Jones best WR tandem in the NFL

The cornerback is talking some more. Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson seems to have found himself in the news a lot this offseason and it happened again. This time it wasn't about who the best cornerback was, though. It was comments he made about wide receivers. Peterson was attending a fundraiser in Greensboro, North Carolina, put together his head coach's foundation. He was asked about the best receiver tandem in the league. Peterson said (via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution) that Roddy White and Julio Jones are the best duo in the league, agreeing with comments that...
