Company spokesman Dean Stoyer confirmed to ESPN that Under Armour has mutually parted ways with Jones, one of its flashiest assets. The severing between the two, who had one more year on the deal, happened weeks ago, but neither side had acknowledged a breakup and Jones continued to wear his Under Armour cleats and gloves in camp.

Jones was reported to be wearing Air Jordan shoes on the sidelines of last night’s preseason game against the Chiefs, but there is no word yet if he has a new deal with Nike or not]]> 5274955 Sat, 18 Aug 2018 11:18:01 EDT Falcons Wire

Jones spent most of the 2017 offseason in recovery mode from toe surgery and only made one appearance last preseason, receiving one target in a brief showing. His health wasn't in question this time around, but his contract status was. In the end, the Falcons restructured his contract to provide $2.9 million more for the upcoming campaign. If he takes the field Friday, it may be the only he makes during exhibition season. Beyond that, the most interesting aspect surrounding Jones is his relationship with second-year offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. While Jones posted a fourth 1,400-yard season in a row last year, his TD count (three) was the second-lowest of his illustrious career, despite seeing 19 red-zone looks.

<![CDATA[Julio Jones expects better relationship with Steve Sarkisian in Year 2]]> Julio Jones as well as he should have.

Throughout his career, Jones’ red zone numbers have not been where they should be for a player of his caliber. A lot of elements have gone into that, but a failure to scheme for him near the goal line is arguably the largest part.

Good news: Jones expects that he will have a better rapport with Atlanta’s play-caller in 2018.

Here’s what Jones said about his relationship with Sark going into his second year as offensive coordinator, per D. Orlando Ledbetter at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution]]> 5272261 Wed, 15 Aug 2018 9:03:01 EDT Falcons Wire

Jones has played a full 16-game slate just three times in his illustrious career to date, so it's no shock that the Falcons are holding out their offensive centerpiece in a meaningless contest. On the heels of his fifth 1,000-year season in the the past six years, he'll look to improve his prowess in the red zone, where the Falcons ranked 23rd in scoring in 2017, per Kevin Patra of

It’s always exciting to see a first-round draft pick walk onto an NFL field for the first time. We could be watching history in the making. Maybe Calvin Ridley is the next Julio Jones. Maybe he’s the next Jerry Rice. Maybe he’ll be a total bust. His career could land somewhere in-between. Nobody knows, at this point]]> 5268401 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:21:01 EDT Falcons Wire
