Falcons QB Matt Ryan says ‘no debate’ Julio Jones is the best WR in the NFL

The Atlanta Falcons are a team hoping to get it together during the 2020 NFL season. The veteran team is among the most talented in the NFL, especially offensively. Although, they haven’t been able to live up to expectations the last few years.

It could be a make-or-break season for the Falcons as they are currently constructed. One thing is for certain, however, star quarterback Matt Ryan still has an incredible amount of faith in his superstar wide receiver, Julio Jones. Transcription via Falcons Wire.

“He is the most humble, hard-working superstar that there is, and the absolute best teammate you could ask for,” Ryan said of Jones.

The Falcons QB was unwavering in his declaration that Jones is the best receiver in the NFL. “To me, there’s no debate about it,” Ryan concluded.

Jones has been a dominant force in the NFL ever since the Falcons drafted him out of Alabama back in 2011. He has made the Pro Bowl every single season he’s played for Atlanta outside of his rookie year and 2013. Jones also has two All-Pro selections in 2015 and 2016.

In the past six seasons, Jones has racked up 1,300 yards or more in every season with 83 receptions or more in each season. He also hauled in six or more touchdowns in five of their six seasons. The veteran wideout may not be a touchdown machine, but he’s as consistent as they come in the NFL at his position and will be paramount to the Falcons’ success moving forward.
