Julio Jones has played 90 games in the NFL. In that time, he has eclipsed the all-time records for receptions and receiving yards. Aquan Boldin previously held the record for receptions and Lance Alworth had the most yardage. Jones has accumulated 563 receptions for 8,649 yards. He is feared as an extremely explosive receiver, averaging 15.4 yards per catch throughout his career. He has 31 catches for 40 or more yards and has been a big play threat since his rookie season. Jones already has five seasons of over 1,000 yards in seven years in the NFL. The only two season he failed to hit the 1,000 yard mark were his rookie season and 2013 when he was injured after five games.

He’s your problem, not ours.

Jones had a monstrous game on Sunday to reach the 90 game mark. He secured 12 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns. During the 2017 season, the end zone has evaded Jones, but he fired on all cylinders on Sunday. By the end of the Falcons 34-20 victory over the Buccaneers, Jones was the only active receiver in NFL with three 250 yard receiving games in a career. Jones and the Falcons are back in action this Sunday when they take on the Vikings at home.
