Cowboys believe Amari Cooper waiting for Julio Jones’ deal

The Dallas Cowboys have engaged in contract extension talks with wide receiver Amari Cooper, but Cooper may be waiting to see what kind of deal Atlanta Falcons wideout Julio Jones gets before he gets deep into discussions, according to Clarence Hill Jr. of The Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Cooper is entering the final year of his […] The post Cowboys believe Amari Cooper waiting for Julio Jones’ deal appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Julio Jones may need to take heat of holdout to get Falcons deal he wants

Falcons star Julio Jones didn’t show up for voluntary organized team activities this week. I don’t blame him. Look at the players who suffered serious injuries during the NFL’s silly spring, including teammate Steven Means.

Julio Jones has the most receiving yards in NFL history vs. Panthers, Buccaneers, and Packers

In case you were unaware, Julio Jones is good. It’s unquestioned that Quintorris Lopez Jones, also known as Julio Jones, is the best wide receiver in the NFL. But in regards to NFL history, three NFL franchises have Julio in their history books. The image above displays the most yards allowed in a single game all time by each of the NFL’s 32 teams. The Atlanta Falcons allowed former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress to put up 253 yards in 2002. It was a rare tie-ending game, where both teams scored 34 points. What’s most interesting about the list is...

Julio Jones will show to “mandatory stuff” after skipping volunteer activities

Julio Jones will show to “mandatory stuff” after skipping volunteer activities

Don’t expect to see Jones in Flowery Branch before June 11. As we find out every year around this time, sports fans have very strong feelings about players skipping things like voluntary workouts or glorified scrimmages. It is pretty common for top players to skip these things, especially when they have an established workout plan, an understanding of the scheme, and plenty of chemistry with other teammates. It is also pretty common for players to skip when they want a pay bump. Julio Jones fits in both categories. He’s skipping voluntary OTAs after skipping voluntary workouts, which...

Falcons receiver Julio Jones does not report for start of OTAs

Organized Team Activities are voluntary, so there is no real obligation for NFL players to show up to these workouts. However, it is always news, nonetheless, when a team’s best player doesn’t participate in them. Such is the case with the Falcons and Julio Jones. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported Jones’ absence. Jones’ absence comes […] The post Falcons receiver Julio Jones does not report for start of OTAs appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Frustrated With The Atlanta Falcons Off-Season? You Have Every Right

The Atlanta Falcons season ended relatively uneventful., a 17-point comeback versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that cost them a few spots in the draft. And yes, Matt Ryan caught his first career touchdown but still. The Atlanta Falcons had a lengthy to-do list this off-season: lock up Grady Jarrett, pay Julio Jones, get rid of […] Frustrated With The Atlanta Falcons Off-Season?

Grady Jarrett also skipping early voluntary OTAs

In addition to wide receiver Julio Jones, defensive tackle Grady Jarrett is sitting out the early portion of the Organized Team Activities, which started on Monday, according to a person with knowledge of the workouts.

Report: Grady Jarrett not attending OTAs anytime soon

Report: Grady Jarrett not attending OTAs anytime soon

Likely due to contract negotiations, same as Julio Jones. Earlier today it was revealed that Atlanta Falcons star wide receiver Julio Jones was not in attendance for the teams voluntary OTAs. Yes, we are aware what voluntary means. We also have learned that Falcons’ defensive tackle Grady Jarrett skipped OTAs, and barring a new deal, which sounds distant, we may not see him for a while. Also, Grady Jarrett is not at OTAs. Barring the signing of a new deal, he is not expected to be at OTAs over the next few weeks (both sides are still far apart.) No decision has been made on if he...

Julio Jones skips start of voluntary OTAs amid contract negotiations

Julio Jones skips start of voluntary OTAs amid contract negotiations

The league’s best wide receiver sat out voluntary OTAs and the start of minicamp last season before he was given a pay bump. Players started reporting Monday for the start of organized team activities and there is one notable missing player. Actually, there are probably multiple notable missing players as OTAs are voluntary and players are primarily working out as they slowly get back into the groove. The notable player, for the second year in a row, is Julio Jones. Per D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jones did not report to Flowery Branch. Also of interest is...

Falcons news: ESPN shares full predictions for Julio Jones for the 2019 season

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones may not be as flamboyant as Antonio Brown or Odell Beckham Jr., so he doesn’t really make headlines. However, that does not change the fact that he may very well be the best wide out in football. Jones is coming off of a spectacular 2018 campaign in which he […] The post Falcons news: ESPN shares full predictions for Julio Jones for the 2019 season appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Peterson to miss meeting with Falcons, Julio Jones

Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson, who was suspended for the first six games of the season by the NFL for violating the league’s performance enhancement drug policy on Thursday, will miss the game against the Falcons, which is set for 4:05 p.m. Oct. 13 in Glendale, Ariz.

Patrick Peterson suspended for Falcons game due to PEDs

The 8-time Pro Bowl corner won’t face off with Julio Jones. Two of the NFL’s top players won’t face each other this year after one was caught taking banned substances. Julio Jones has gotten the better of corner Patrick Peterson on their prior matchups, and we will consider October 13th’s game another win for Julio. Actually six games. Patrick Peterson dropped his appeal. Six games. https://t.co/8eSyrkIfSh— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 16, 2019 The Falcons narrowly made the suspension window thanks to the week 6 matchup. This is disappointing as that matchup may be the...

Falcons sign rookie OT Kaleb McGary, CB Kendall Sheffield

The team now has six of their seven draft selections under contract, with only Chris Lindstrom to go. The Falcons have been busily getting their draft class under contract so they can focus their full attention (presumably) on the upcoming new deals for Grady Jarrett and Julio Jones. On Thursday, they managed to get 31st overall selection Kaleb McGary and fourth rounder Kendall Sheffield signed, meaning Chris Lindstrom is the only one left who isn’t under contract. That will likely change soon enough. Falcons announce agreeing to terms with OL Kaleb McGary and CB Kendall Sheffield.—...
