Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is trying to impress you. If Jones had his way, you'd be completely floored by his performance every week; he's just that motivated. But in truth, Jones comes off as a humble, determined guy. He's trying to be the best while lifting up the franchise and making it better.
It's not easy being the best. That's a conundrum Jones must navigate en route to greatness each and every day. For now, it's paying off, and he's been nominated as the NFL's best player.
The latest organization to recognize the superstar's greatness is ESPN, who has nominated Jones for the ESPY's Best NFL Player award. Also nominated are Cam Newton, Tom Brady, JJ Watt and Antonio Brown.
This is one of those things that doesn't mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things but is still significant. Jones certainly deserves the honor and I'm proud of him. Your thoughts?
