He's probably the best football player ever. He's a twelve-time Pro Bowl selection. He's a former Super Bowl MVP. He's a three-time Super Bowl champion. Long story short, I'd say Jerry Rice is a good judge of talent. And he had this to say about our WR2.

Rice has a developing man-crush on Julio Jones, and nominated the Atlanta Falcons weapon as his breakout pass-catcher for 2012.

"I love this kid," Rice said on ESPN's SportsCenter, per ProFootballTalk.com. "He's awesome. He's big, he's fast ... I think he's gonna have a breakout season this coming year."

Rice hearts Jones. He has nothing but good things to say about him. Who can blame Rice? Heck, I have a man crush on Jones; a rather large one. But I don't have thirteen thousand receiving yards backing up my opinion. All signs point to a considerable jump for Jones. Let's hope he can come through.

Discuss!
