Julio Jones could have a big-time contract on the way.
The Falcons receiver is reportedly negotiating a deal which would make him the NFL’s highest-paid wideout, according to Bleacher Report.
The report states a source close to the situation expects Jones to sign a multi-year deal paying him more than $20 million per year with $50 million to $60 million guaranteed.
Jones, 30, recorded a league-leading 1,677 receiving yards in 2018-19. He also caught eight touchdowns in a down year for his team.
Atlanta posted a 7-9 record and finished second in the NFC South last season, despite a horrendous start.
Jones is the Falcons’ most dangerous weapon. While he is not scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent until 2021, securing him long-term could prove to be an important move for Atlanta.
