There isn’t much to say concerning Julio Jones’ starting job with the Falcons so I will keep this short. Jones is one of the top five best wide receivers in the NFL and gives Atlanta a weapon that not many teams have. Jones put up astronomical numbers in 2014 and should be just as good in 2015 especially with it being a contract year! Well, expecting that he doesn’t sign an extension before training camp in eight days.

Jones should flourish in Shanahan’s offense much like Josh Gordon did while with the Cleveland Browns. Expect Julio to move around a lot more often than he has and play some in the slot to give the opposing defense a different look. It’s time to use every aspect of Jones’ game to the fullest.
