Falcons TWESTOTE of the Day: JJ11 + Atlanta's Playbook = Old Friends

We've talked to about Julio Jones ad nauseum since last month's draft. But the kid is pretty discussion-worthy. Confirming my suspicion that nothing worthwhile happens in Chicago, Bears beat writer Brad Biggs elected to share some JJ11-related content Saturday.

The Atlanta Falcons wide receiver has already huddled with quarterbacks Matt Ryan and John Parker Wilson, who Jones played with at Alabama, and he’s going to join player-directed 7-on-7 practices next week.

"It’s kind of the same offense there that we had at Alabama," Jones told Ken Sugiura. "Some of the plays are the same, but it’s just different terminology."

Apparently he's 100 percent now. While he wasn't medically-cleared as of Saturday, one would think he will be shortly. Glad he's planning to participate in "minicamp" practices this week. I'm curious to see how he fares against Dunta and Grimsey in coverage. If anything, it will give him/Matty an opportunity to work on timing. 

Without a doubt, he's seen our playbook. He saw it when he interviewed and he's undoubtedly seen it since. And he likes what he sees. I'm very pleased it feels familiar. It's definitely a step in the right direction.
