Antonio Brown reminds everyone he isn’t on Julio Jones level


As the Atlanta Falcons and star wide receiver Julio Jones enter the final stages of a new contract, we are reminded yet again why Julio is the best receiver in the league.

By now you have heard the news, the Raiders are going to suspend Antonio Brown for going after Raiders general manager Mike Mayock. This is just another stain on the reputation for a player that many have long claimed to be better than Julio Jones.

Most Atlanta Falcons fans will agree that Julio Jones does not get the respect that he deserves. During his eight-year NFL career, Julio is on pace to shatter most of the receiving records held by the legendary Jerry Rice.

In his eight years, Julio has led the league in receptions once, receiving yards twice, and yards per game three times. He is the only receiver in the history of the game to have multiple 250-yard receiving games, he is the NFL all-time leader in yards per game and he has missed an entire season’s worth of games.

As great as Julio is on the field, he is an even better person off the field. He doesn’t attack teammates, he doesn’t tweet about being unhappy and doesn’t go after Thomas Dimitroff because his feelings got hurt.

Sure, some people claim Antonio Brown has better hands or runs better routes (he doesn’t) and claim that he is the best receiver in the league (he isn’t) but what people cannot claim is that Antonio Brown is a more complete receiver.

Receivers are considered the divas of the NFL and Julio Jones has never been that type of player; he has always understood that he can make people great and takes pride in knowing he helped accomplish something bigger than himself.

Next. Falcons have a history of big wins in Minnesota. dark

As his contract gets finalized over the next week or month, take time to appreciate the man that wears number 11 and rejoice that we do not have to deal with Antonio Brown. Not all talent is worth the headache.
