Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (foot surgery) is expected to be "full strength" for the start of training camp, reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. What It Means: Jones was previously considered questionable for the start of camp, but the Falcons are likely going to take an extremely conservative approach throughout the offseason to guarantee his status for Week 1. Don't be surprised if Jones winds up being held out during preseason action. Among the 41 wide receivers with at least 100 targets last season, Jones's paced them all with 0.89 Reception Net Expected...

Who are the Atlanta Falcons you irrationally love most?

We’ve all got a few. As I noted yesterday for our draft pick nomination story, when we hit the doldrums of the offseason—and frankly, we’re just about there!—we like to talk about Falcons history more than we would in, say, August or September. We’ll kick things off with something a little off the beaten path. When we think about our favorite Falcons over the years, we tend to focus on the greats. Plenty of us love Julio Jones, Jessie Tuggle, Tommy Nobis, Matt Ryan, Michael Vick, and Deion Sanders, who were all legitimately great players and stars in their own right for the...

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones says foot feels good, focusing on recovery

Fact: Julio Jones speaks fluent pig latin Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones courageously played through a painful foot injury last season. You never heard him complain. In fact, you heard Dan Quinn and the rest of the coaching staff repeatedly downplay the injury. But we knew the truth. We knew Julio was hurting. Julio recently underwent surgery to remove a bunion. If you recall, surgery was optional, but he ultimately decided to knock it out and put it behind him. He’s on track for a return to the field before training camp. The AJC’s D. Orlando Ledbetter wrote about...

Report: Falcons interested in veteran wide receiver Andre Roberts

Report: Falcons interested in veteran wide receiver Andre Roberts

The longtime receiver could interest the Falcons as a fourth or fifth option, but not much more. In terms of starters, the Falcons are more or less set on offense, minus perhaps a guard. That’s definitely true at receiver, where the Falcons have Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Taylor Gabriel, and Justin Hardy available to wreak havoc on opposing defenses. That doesn’t mean they won’t be in the market for another option, especially after they carried six receivers in 2016. Enter Andre Roberts, I guess? WR Andre Roberts has interest from Patriots, Atlanta, and Detroit. No deals yet per...

2017 Atlanta Falcons will be GM Thomas Dimitroff’s first complete team

Fact: Thomas Dimitroff puts ketchup on his hot dogs Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff wasn’t always a fancy football guru with designer bike shorts and drawers full of expensive pomade. In fact, after the Falcons went 6-10 in 2014, his seat was hotter than Dimitroff has been solid during nine year tenure. For every Peter Konz, Lamar Holmes, and Chris Owens, there’s been a Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, and Desmond Trufant. Do I wish the Falcons would’ve passed on Peria Jerry? Yes, absolutely. But I’m thrilled they jumped on Keanu Neal. Drafting is an imperfect science;...

Falcons' Julio Jones (toe) unsure if he will undergo surgery

It is still unclear if Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (toe) will undergo surgery, head coach Dan Quinn said. What It Means: Jones will visit with a doctor next week.
