Julio Jones breaks Roddy White's franchise single season reception record

Of course he did.

Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

With Julio Jones' 116th reception of the season, which came fairly early in the Falcons-Jaguars game today, he broke the single season record once held by Roddy White. If you're debating the greatest receiver in franchise history, it basically comes down to those two guys, so this feels apropos.

Julio's had a handful of crucial drops and stretches where he's been taken out of the game, but the fact that he's produced in this fashion when every defense in the NFL knows he's the team's only high-end target in the passing game is nothing short of remarkable. He's a tremendous receiver, he's going to be here a long time, and many more team (and perhaps NFL) records will fall before Jones hangs up his cleats.

Big props to Julio.
