3. Julio Jones

This is a suggestion that is going to get a myriad of reactions from Atlanta Falcons fans considering Jones' exit from Atlanta and where the veteran is at this point in his career. Jones is an injury-prone veteran who has proven only to be productive for a handful of games a season over the last three years.

This isn't about signing Jones to come in and be a starting option and the star receiver the veteran was in Atlanta. It is about bringing back a franchise legend to help guide the next generation of Atlanta stars and perhaps provide an occasional big play along the way.

If Atlanta were to sign Jones this off-season it would be about sending the receiver off the right way and adding leadership to the locker room. It isn't just about a reunion or attempting to find cheap production but adding a player who has carried himself the right way while playing at a level few have reached.

That wisdom would be extremely useful not only for Atlanta's receivers but for Desmond Ridder and Atlanta's coaching staff with a player that has been through a lot during his time in Atlanta. Bringing Jones back may receive mixed reactions but it makes sense for both sides.
