If both Jeffery and Benjamin are off of the table then the Atlanta Falcons should turn to Marvin Jones who has been making plays for Andy Dalton in Cincinnati for the past three years. Jones isn’t the Bengals’ no.1 wide receiver and that’s perfectly fine. The Falcons are in the market for a no.2 wide receiver to complement Julio Jones and ironically Jones could be that guy.
That just dawned on me. How cool would it be to have the two-headed monster of the Jones’s manning the Falcons’ receiving corps for the next several years? Just imagine how many cool nicknames people could come up with.
The good thing for the Falcons is that Jones isn’t the only wide receiver that the Bengals will have testing the market in the offseason. Mohamed Sanu is also a free agent after this season and the likelihood of the Bengals retaining both of them aren’t very high. Jones is clearly the better receiver of the two which would mean that the Falcons would have to act fast in order to bring him to Atlanta.
